Ahh well. I just would like to say thankyou to the people who are 'for' parelli and posted, keep having fun and learning with your horse.

Way to go! Sounds like you are doing a great job with your hore! All the best!

I don't get it! Why is capitalism so despised when it comes to Parelli? He has a good product, good advertising, a worldwide following, and therefore, people are willing to pay a lot for his products. Its just like anything... Oreos vs. Generic oreos. What tastes better? Thusly, what is more expensive? Hmmm...

well I am content to continue this thread as it was originally intended to be used. I like parelli. I find it is unique, open minded, gentle, and logical.

My reining trainer was Arab national champion alternate for western pleasure... She is also working on her 2 star parelli certification and she is AWESOME. Never have I had more fun with my horse.

I also bought a Parelli book on Amazon for $8, and it was just what I wanted... Great ideas and very inspiring.

Ok following the Parelli program can be cheap. At least up to level 3. I myself am at level 3. I could move on to level 4 but my horse won't be ready for a while. However, I could technically watch it and understand it but I have no need for level 4 at this moment.

So if anyone is interested in doing level 1-3 I suggest you use any rope halter if you can't afford a Parelli one, a 22 ft rope(you can buy similar length at tack shop), and a stick (you can buy a cheaper one if needed). However if you can afford his product, it's well made and lasts a long time.

Now once you have all the equipment you can join the savvy club for just $10 a month. I found it helpful. You may just want to join the club and not buy the dvd's.
You can borrow the dvd's. So if you borrow the dvd's and join the club that's only $120 a year for doing Parelli.

Now they do have some additional dvd's that you may want to purchase at some point but you don't have to have them to go through the levels.

That's all you need! Other stuff like obstacles you can make yourself. I find Parelli affordable.

*If you get stuck at some level you can get a Parelli instructor out a couple of times. I heard they are very helpful.

Approach and retreat is all about reading your horse. If you are playing the friendly game and your horse is backing away from the savvy string, then you should allow your horse to relax and become confident in you again by retreating. Walk away while rythmically hitting the ground with your savvy string. Then, as your horse begins to relax again, reapproach him with the carrot stick and work your way back to throwing the string rythmically onto all zone but his delicate zone. You can go back to this at anytime that you feel your horse is getting nervous or lacking confidence.

if your playing the 'friendly game' with your savvy string, and your horse is backing away, and because of that you ease off so as not to "scare" him, then you've taught him that the savvy string means backup, not standstill.

which is a 'driving game' not a 'friendly game'

I still do not see the need for a string of any kind to teach this to a horse. All mine learn this a weanlings.

its the same as the string part of your average lunge whip.

either way, as you mentioned it's unnecessary.

you can do parelli with out the string, i do. what tools someone uses is not all that important really, its the method. just because your horses know this as weanlings, doesnt mean everyones horse does. i got mine at 3 knowing nothing.
