First time organizing a Parelli clinic :D

Just wanted to tell you guys all about yesterday and how it went

Okay so our PP for the day was Shelley O'Doherty. She came up the day before with my friend Ellie all the way from Limerick about three and a half hours away on the Friday and stayed the night.

So we were due to start the first lesson at half nine Saturday morning. Had everything ready to go with all the stables all clean for everyone and said for people to arrive around nine. Two of our friend ended up having loading problems so we ended up starting about an hour later than planned but it was ok by everyone. For the first half an hour it was without horses and just an introduction to Shelley and the program to the four participants. Shelley told them all about the seven games, zoneology, phases and how horses are prey animals and think we are going to kill them to give everyone an understanding of the basics. They then went out to get the horses and during the course of the lesson played with games one to three with their horses. I did get to watch some of this but half way through people started arriving for the second lesson so was busy showing them where to park and put their horses.

After that it was really time to start on the food, had me, dad, and three of dad's friends all helping out with food at the time. By the time everything was just about ready the lesson was just finished and people were busy asking Shelley some questions on Parelli. Everyone seemed happy with their lesson and was interested in Parelli and wanted to see more so it went really well. When everyone was finished with food and had a rest we started over again with the second lesson and it went the same as the first except I actually got to watch more of this one because I didn't have as much to do at this stage.

After the lesson people got ready to go and I headed out to the field to take Phoebe in for our own lesson. I asked Shelley about our sideways game and the first thing Shelley noticed was how LBE I was and how LBI Phoebe was lol So I had to go down to her energy level and we had to be a bit more in harmony. It all went really well and we worked on Phoebe's dominance issues that I had kind of not noticed or ignored until this point and we ended up more in harmony at the end of our lesson. Did some work on walking somewhere with a purpose, stick to me, driving from zone 3, focusing my focus, getting Phoebe to move off the slightest pressure, and eventually our sideways after fixing up our driving game a little bit and doing our sideways from a circle first. All in all I LOVED it for a first lesson and will be getting another at some point
