How does going downhill build hindquarters?? Horses many use their front end going down hill. Horses due to their build and the slope of the hill are very inefficient with their hind end thus the front legs brace and hold the weight.
Again how is this build hind end strength.

Fortunately for the Parellites who have spent a fortune on overpriced Parelli saddles and bridles but are still afraid to actually get on and ride, the site explains how it can be done using the lunge line. . .oops. . .I mean "training line."

Of course, it is okay for the horse to stop and face the handler during the exercise, or even to stop and graze for a few seconds. . .:roll:


I wish it were harder to believe!! I heard him say once that if you can't stop and guide your horse at a w/t/c without out using the reins you should stay in the arena. I don't even have an arena so I would have to give up riding. Some people have work to do and can't spent two hours a day getting thier horse ready to do what needs to be done.

I heard you had to be a level 3 before you could be trusted to get in the saddle. Sooo that means I have to go up and down the hill on foot?! Well I guess I could use some hindquarter work too
