The best of Equine Affaire OH video(Linda Parelli)! Part 5.
Well Linda Parelli is my celebrity! And pat Parelli is my 2nd Celebrity! I have seen Linda and pat a number of times now( I even got to go to Colorado once and visit their facility). But every time for me is like the first again and I always enjoy the moments! I mainly went to Equine Affaire, since I knew Linda Parelli was going and I really want to see her demonstration on Saturday(the only day I went). Linda did a simulation using people about the 7 games. Since Linda only had a small area to work with and bringing out a real horse was just too confined in this small area. Before Linda started with the simulation she needed 5 people to help her! Of course, I THREW my arm up!!! I was the first one picked from the crowd!! I was sooooo thrilled to say the least!!!!!!!! My celebrity picked ME!!! How fun!!! I got into the arena and since I have seen Linda's demos before. I kind of figured she was going to make a fake horse out of 5 people. So I stayed at the back, thinking I would be the end of the horse. I wanted to be the kicker (you will understand more when you watch the video). Anyway, she took the first 4 people to make her fake horse and told me to stand aside. I would be Linda Later! What? What was that meaning??? Now my heart rate was 420! What was I going to have to do? Could I do it?? Omg, I want to go sit back down, LOL. I stood there and freaked out! Yes, I was certainly right brain at the moment and couldn't think! This video I posted was only part of the video. I had to cut off 10 minutes, because my flip video wouldn't let me download more than 10 minutes!!!! So to catch you up. Linda went through the 7 games with her fake horse. Then she handed the fake horse over to me!!!! And Linda whispered into my ear....get your horse to touch the water bottle on the table! She of course, didn't want everyone to hear what my task was. So as the video starts I am just starting to head my horse to the bottle on the table. I was sooo nervous and dying in my clothes. It was pretty cold outside and a rainy day. So I had 3 layers of clothes on and long johns. So add nervousness and anxiety to it and it equals dying of heat stroke, LOL!!! There was even one point Linda came over and told me she would be my right arm. All I heard was the charlie brown teacher and stared at her??? I had to ask her....what did you say??? She probably thought I was an idiot. But I was soooo nervous! All and all I had a blast after I got to breath later. I also learned something about my own Parelli touch it game. I am not really waiting long enough for my horse to actually think of what I possibly am thinking about!!! So I am thrilled to learn that! I also cherish my gifts I got that day!! I was sooo thrilled and appreciative! I never expected it and again I was thrilled! I later had Linda Parelli sign my Blue Carrot Stick and I plan to keep it forever and never use it! Love it!!!! Who is your celebrity??? Even if it is not horse related! Many Smiles, Janine
