You don't usually have contact till you get to level 3/4.


But I used the lunge reins today and she did VERY well. She was slightly confused and kept backing up at first [shes sensative to the mouth] lol but then she realized she can infact go forward! Her ears were forward and alert. Since it was the very first day I let her choose the trot she was comfortable and calm with. Tomorrow im going to ask for a bit more forwardness. But till I upload the video here are some pictures:





And my favorite!


:)
Ill get the video up soon.

Parelli focuses on Freestyle (loose reins, no contact, bridleless) riding before Finesse (riding with contact and precision) riding. It's important for the horse to know how to do everything without contact on his mouth and it's important for the rider to do Freestyle so that they don't micromanage and they use FOCUS when riding....along with a lot of other reasons :)

ok well she explained it better lol!

I think chance is a lot more confident when riding when I have contact honestly. But I want her to be able to ride with and with out contact which Im going to make sure happens. While training her im keep her in mine 100% of the time.

She got RB when putting it on so I took it all of and rubbed her till she relaxed tried again and she was fine. Licking and Chewing. Also instead of doing it in lungeing form I did it in the circle game. Which she was more then happy to do. She kept offering the trot no problem.

There is a reason why you ride Freestyle BEFORE Finesse.

Only according to Parelli. Every training style could give you a good reason why they do what they do and could be equally justified in doing it their chosen way.

Just remember all that Parelli is NOT the be all or end all of training. I personally see serious flaws in its use but you will have to find them out yourself (after you have spent a fortune).

I personally see serious flaws in traditional training. I've come across no flaws in Parelli, and I've been studying it for quite some time. Overall I have spent less money on educating myself than someone who pays a trainer to try to train their horse (and the horse doesn't get near as much exposure or foundation work as Parelli offers....IMO).

I don't want this to be a parelli fight please :)

Weather I teach finnese or free style first, Chance will be able to be ridden with and without contact. Already she has 2 speeds of trot. She's definitely not impressed that im being more demanding with what I want, but she's blinking a lot more and actually blows out while riding.

She's still trying to figure out why theres pressure on the bit and no ones on her :P

I gotta do some longer work with them on so she can get more of the feel for them.
