    Brandon,

    Please don't slam me guys. I just want to type a quickie. Please don't let the Parelli system become your ONLY method for training. I think the 7 games are great and tons of people have huge success with them. My usual fight is that the 7 games are actually methods that are used by all trainers including traditional ones.

    I think it's awesome that you are using the 7 games and I believe you will get great results but please, please keep your mind open to all suggestions as you progress.

    Good luck and have fun! Post pix!

    But if it's working why change it?

    And no games? Talk about a boring life for the horse.

    Well of course I am open minded about other training methods. I am just really excited that Nana was actually having fun. I mean, I believe at the the end of the day, Nana respected me a lot more.

    I refuse to play a game with an animal that out weighs me 10 times over.

    My horses come when I call them and enjoy our time spent working, grooming, training, etc. I don't think they are bored for a single second. They appreciate the respect I have for their abilities and I respect they have a thought process.

    Last thing I need is for my roping horse to go flying backwards when a rope 'wiggles' at her. Or my cutting horse to stand still because he doesn't understand my leg on him means move.

    I'm sure she did Brandon!!! The thing with the "games" is that they really aren't games, They are training sessions with cute names. I agree that I don't like the wiggle the rope game, it could cause accidents when/if you get the signals crossed with other horses and people around.

    I find that when you ask kindly for horses to move their feet and you become a leader in a simple language that they can understand, you gain respect from your horse.

    Parelli didn't invent horsemanship but they did box it neatly and add a price tag.

    Be sure you don't burn Nana out on the games and have FUN WITH HER!!!

    If you find your horses to be bored when you aren't playing games with them, perhaps you should re-evaluate what you are doing. Also if your horse is openly exhibiting the usual signs of boredom, that seems kind of disrespectful. You horse is probably lacking confidence in you. I manage to spend hours with my horse without her getting bored and you can be sure I'm not playing games with her.

    Sorry if I sound rude, but I have to say that an ignorant statement. I understand that you like Parelli, which is fine. However, just because I don't use Parelli or his "games" does not mean that my horse has boring life. I love my horses and I like to think they return the favor. They both know their jobs and like what they do. I think it's safe to say that my horses have a happy, non-boring life.

    I think it is a good thing to remember that just because one training method works well for one person, does not mean that it is going to work the same for everyone.
