Yesterday!!!! Parelli has begun! [UPDATE! again!! page 3!]

Want the good new or bad first?? Ill give u the good. Yesterday with chance went awesome!!!! We did our 30 min quite time and she came over to me many times and some of the time just stand right there will me! I was so suprised how much she acknolaged[sp?] me being in he same round pen with her. It was very relaxing as well considering it was 70 degrees!! after that I got up and was going to get her so I could start playing the friendly game, silly horse put her head into the fence and got it stuck lol! But after her kinda popping her head up and hitting the metal she decided to just let me control where her head went and we got it out. :P Chance is deff. the master at the friendly game, I wanted to see how calm she would be and how much she trusted me, so I grabed the lunge whip that had a flash and cracked it right beside her and she raised her head but didn't move. So we just did that a little while. On to the porcipine game, shes good and engageing her hind quaters, front shes starting to get the hang of lol after trying to keep pressure on her neck while shes half way rearing isnt easy, but then shes like maybe if i move over here! o hey it stopped!! lol so I got her going in a almost full circle a pretty large one though. Making her back up was almost impossible lol till I came up with an Idea that maybe if i pull back on her ROPE halter and press on her chest she would get it easier and she did! After a few times of pulling on her halter and pressing i decided to just press and i got a whole 3 steps!! :P but they are sometimes sideway backing up steps >.<! I dont think she knows that a stright line is :P I sorta started the driving game but she didnt understand so we went back to the porcipine! I let her off the lead and she decided hmm what happens if I rear and run around you and buck [playful] lol it was funny but i decided to take advantage of that and start a different form of join up because monty roberts way would not work for me or her. So after doing my form of join up she had her head lowered almost to the ground, licking lips, chewing, ear pointed towards me. After I let her come in she would stay right there with me but when she walked off when I did not want her to I made it my idea, worked pretty well lol one she was walking off and I was just standing there she swung around and came back lol Stayed right out of my bubble tho :P she Just needs to work on staying out of my space while leading. Whats next well, basicly lesson 7 working on playing the Porcipine game, The driving game, and The yo-yo game!
Okay the bad news: Well a 20 yr old horse TB jumped the fence, we guess something was chasing him, ran 2 miles up the road near a busy road and got hit straight on. :(!!! He died.. He was a great horse! Pocket pet out in the feild loved attention, great health, jumps and had dressage training, Gorgeous and wonderfully put together. The person who hit him only got a few bumps on his car.

---------------UPDATE-------------------
Well this weekend was amazing!!! I rode my horse, NO problems, just 1 rear, she responded to the bit a lot better. One think I know she needs to work on is stopping and standing still, and flexion if anyone has ANY opinions how to help please tell me! Ok so listen to this, We went riding on a trail, well before you get on the trail theres a fence you have to go threw well, we were troting.. at first, then all of a sudden shes in a canter and im looking im like no no no cause this fence is about 5 foot 6 in around there and shes like hmm im not gonna listen im gonna take us over this jump, and all im thinking is o god if she doesn't clear this were dead [literally] But she cleared it!! cliped her back feet but besides that! perfect! It was amazing.. scary but amazing! after the trail I brought her back to the barn gave her a nice cool bath [ it was like in the 80s today] gave her some treats then put her in the stall with some hay! For parelli we didnt do to much just a few of the games. Ill have a videos up of chance free lunging under saddle just so everyone can see how she moves under saddle! I love chance

Congrats on Day 1 ! Sounds like it went really well!

Sorry to hear about the other horse!!!

Thats awful about the horse getting killed Ours have gotten out once with no injurys. Really scary stuff though.
Sounds like you are doing an excellent job with the Parelli. Just remember its not the pressure they learn from, its the release of pressure. One of my favorite things to do from Parelli is the quiet time. I've done that with every horse we've had and its amazing to become part of the herd. The hard part is becoming the lead horse
