there is so much to learn about parelli that it isnt something very easy to go into in just one post. You are probably better off buying some of his dvds as its the only way you will get the full info you need on his techniques :) but generally you start with bonding techniques. Although you may have what you think is a good bond with your horse, you often realise once starting these things that there is so much you didnt know about how your horse feels about you. But yeah, I would really suggest getting some dvds :)
Try and look at more natural horsemen than just parelli though. As much as parelli is absolutely wonderful, it can be advantageous to look at a number of the different ones like frank bell, clinton anderson etc they have the same basis but they have their own ways and techniques that may help you if you find a brick wall with one of the techniques parelli uses :) just a thought for ya :)
