Believe it or not. . .I looked it up, because it just cracked me up to hear that the P's have "invented" yet another gimmick.
According to the .pdf file I found from the P's own site, they recommend that a horse be at Level 2 before starting "Hill Therapy."
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.
