What are you working on right now? It would be lovely to have a base of what you're working on so I can reccommend some things?

The Parelli 7 Games are based on the 7 games horses play with each other to establish dominance. It also builds rapport and a new form of communication with the horse, one that the horse will really understand.

You can go to www.parelli.com and read about the 7 Games more in depth then I could explain here lol!

Well shoot! I just looked at the website and they don't have the link up anymore.....Sorry about that guys. I know there is a DVD on the 7 Games you could buy. It's one of the Success Series DVD's they just came out with. I don't have much time now, but when I have more time I will type out how to do the games as said in the Level 1 Pack.....that's gonna take some time! lol.
