7 games question

What are the names of the 7 parelli games...as hard as we try we can only remember the names of 5 of them...anyone know?

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

What order do they go in or do they even have an order?

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I think you play them in this order

Master these 2 before moving onto the rest.

The friendly Game
The Porcupine Game
------
then you can work on these:
The Driving Game
The Yo-Yo Game
The Circle Game
SideWays Game

im pretty sure thats the order.

The best way to answer your question is to direct you to Parelli's website.....straight to the source :) www.parelli.com will give you all the information you need to answer your questions.

the order would be

1) The Friendly Game
2) The Porcupine Game
3) The Driving Game
4) The Yo-Yo Game
5) The Circle Game
6) The Squeeze Game
7) The Sideways game

I'm pretty sure that is the order, I'm doing this all from memory.

Technically there are 4 main games....Friendly, Porcupine, and Driving. The other 4 are just mixing the first three.



Gingerrr...to be honest you don't need anything to play the games. It is recommended that you use a carrot stick simply as an extention to your arm, but it's not 100% needed (though I do find it alot easier). Also what I find makes it easier but not really needed is a longer lead rope. I have a 12 foot lead rope and I want to get the 22 foot because I think the 12 is too short lol
Here is a good explinatino of the 7 Games on how to perform them http://www.wikihow.com/Do-the-7-Games-of-Parelli.
The only one that I don't agree with 100% is their one on The Friendly Game. Just being with your horse, sitting next to them, grooming, talking to them, etc....is The Friendly Game. It can be on the lead or off of it.

There are 7 games, but there are really only 3. The first 3 games are your principle games and the other games are your purpose games. Everything you do with your horse, on-line or riding, is a version of one of those first 3 games. So if you are having trouble with something ask yourself which one of those first 3 games might be broken.

Sonny, I'm confused. Sitting with your horse, grooming, etc. is the Friendly game and Parelli says so. So why don't you agree with it?
