Thank you, Caitlinpalomino!

There's a short answer and a long answer to your question. The short answer is that Tucker became my Parelli levels horse (the one I focus on while learning Parelli Natural Horsemanship using the old study-at-home levels packs) in late 2004, and I took the bridle off for the first time after reaching Level Three in late 2006. This video was taken last summer.

The long answer is that I've been riding since I was 9, and was introduced to natural horsemanship (not Parelli, just generic NH) when I was 19. I'm pushing 40 now. I don't feel like I made huge strides in my horsemanship while riding until starting with Parelli, though I learned a lot about groundwork from other NH sources.

Of course it's not set in stone, but I feel it is totally reasonable for a fairly fit and athletic individual with an uncomplicated horse (that part's important!) to reach Parelli level 3/4-- and bridleless riding-- in 3 years.

I'm not doing the "levels" yet, I know someone who's a trainer and sends me the DVD's when I need a new one. Right now I have the Horseonalities, the 7 Games, and the Stick 2 Me DVDs. I'm about ready to send them back for the next ones :)

I *love* the old Levels packs. Maybe you could ask for one for Christmas.

Ebay is about the only place to get the old ones these days, but that's good, because they're much cheaper than buying the new kits from parelli.com. There's one here with a current bid of $15.50.

So impressive!
*claps*
I'm doing mixed bitless/bareback NH with my boy but I'm a few years from achieving zero head-gear riding!
Really inspires me!
Keep it up ;)

Haha good job!!! I can steer without headgear and I'm okay on the bareback...but my HUGE issue is that my horse has zero brakes so I can't ACTUALLY get away with not using a bridle except for at the walk :)
