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?
no meaning I don't agree with what the link said about the description on The Friendly Game (I dind't read all of the descriptino though)
meaning the link said that the Friendly game was JUST tossing ropes, tarps, etc on the horse's back with no lead on them ever. Didn't say anything about just sitting with them etc.
I think there is way more too The Friendly Game than what the description in that artical says
I think that article was written years ago. They're much more in depth now. They really push spending undemanding time with your horses so that they realize that you don't only come get them when you want something.
