Can anyone explain this parelli technique to me?

My riding instructor has mentioned parelli a few times. Before we tacked the horse, she had the horse go around in small circles around her. She would point the way she wants the horse to go with the lead, while swinging the other end. My last lesson she showed me how to do it. To get the horse to stop all I had to do was look at his rear end. She said that it was a parelli technique or something like that. I forgot what she called it. Does anyone know? What was the purpose of doing it?

I should've looked around before I made a thread. I just found my answer in the positive parelli thread. But now I have another..

I also watched as my instructor had the horse walking sideways backwards. What does this do?

Hi WishingForAHorse,
As someone who is familiar with natural horsemanship. Having the horse back (or walk/trot/anything/etc) with you (in any direction - straight or sideways) is just another way to clarify with the horse that your space should be respected. And in respected, I do not mean walk away from, I mean move away from you in the way YOU intend. Hope this helps.

Thanks for answering! That makes a lot of sense now that I think of it.

You can also go onto the Parelli website and have a look around there. It has a lot of helpful info on it! :)

Horses often push each other around. The horse with superior rank will move the lesser therefore reestablishing his rank. This is what your instructor is doing.

Wishing, what you described in your first post was lunging. The Parellis use that technique, but so do other trainers. In your second post your instructor was moving the horse around trying to control it's feet. It teaches the horse to respect and obey you.
