Parelli

What is everyone's opinion on the Parelli training stuff?

Sonny, though well behaved, I'd love to be able to make a stronger bond with him (stronger than what I already have), and to just get him to respect me a little bit more than he does now.

I was thinking of maybe doing some Parelli work with him because I have heard some good things about Parelli.

How much do the DVDs usually cost? How about the equiptment?
What exactly are carrot sticks? Can you show me pictures of them?
I have something that I thought was one...but it has a long string attached with leather on the end.

Anything that you don't agree with in Parelli? Anything you don't like?

What parts do you really like?

I think they are a bit extreme...& sometimes go TOO far into their stuff, lol. :P
They are helpful though; I don't own any equipment or DVD's but in lots of horse magazines I come across tips from them.
They did help for me a bit, because I learned some stuff about loading...Lexi used to have trouble with the trailer lol.
I personally don't think it's necessary to buy all their equipment, though.

Your going to have to keep scrolling >>>>> to read all of it sorry! But..I just got the Lvl 1 kit and I really really like it its step by step not confuseing to me at all and its gives a lot of info and shows demos everything. I can't wait to get started with chance this vacation! I cannot say to much about it since I just started but just the lvl 1 set taught me things I didnt know!

A carrot sticks are ment to be a extention of your arm, it is not ment to be used to hit or punish the horse in any way. Its a very stiff stick not very easy to bend it will be useful for a lot of the games and part of your riding :) someone else can add more cause I can't really exsplain it.
Heres a picture ... well a link: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...%3Den%26sa%3DN
A lot of the stuff you can buy off of ebay, that's how I got my lvl 1 set You can get the 12 ft lead rope, rope halters most if not all parelli stuff can be found on ebay. But I would also recommend you check out parelli.com

I think if you get lvl 1 you'll relize why a lot of people enjoy parelli! And im sure you will get a great bond and leadership, respect with your horse :) that's what I want with chance! Remember every horse can learn parelli.. its usually the humans that need to study and understand more. They are exspert at the game they just need to know how good you are :) Im don't ranting about it :)

I think it gets really, really expensive..... if you want prices or just to know more here's the website.... you can browse around and find a lot, he has training hints on there if you can find them...... www.parelli.com

I like the fact that it's gentle and I'm a fan of the ground work and the 7 games, but sometimes I think it beats around the bush a little bit too much and I just want to get down to business

Buy his DVDs but nothing else. Use your stick that you've got, if you wanna use a rope halter you can buy one at Tractor Supply or a tack shop for like 8 bucks and it still gets the job done.

I got knock-off leads at http://www.4shalterandsupply.com/leadsindex.html

They work just the same in my opinion and they are cheaper than any other knock off and work better too.

It's super expensive! I think that some parts are all right - good, in fact. For example, the bonding part and understanding the horse. However, I don't think that you need all of the parelli tack, and parelli carrot stick, etc.. Also, I don't get how the carrot stick is supposed to be an arm extension. I can see how, but it's like a huge stick with a string attached to it...obviously, horses will take that as a whip, although sometimes it's not used as a whip.
I'm going to be taught the seven games this weekend with a boarder's horse...but we'll see!

Im not buying any of the tack I might buy the 12 ft lead rope but I have a rope halter and im just going to tie a 6ft string to s lunge whip wothout a flash, just till I see if I need a carrot stick. =

They are really exsoensive but there are some people who are only parelli nothing else who buy these things and that's there choice. Ebay!! :P
