First time with Parelli

A friend of mine at the barn has been using parelli for about 8 months and it's done wonders for her horse. Since she was there, I decided to try paul with just the parelli halter instead of a bit. I can't believe such a difference was possible. He was much more responsive with the parelli and didn't fight me on his left turns as much as with the bit. I don't know if i'll ever use a bit again for him. For a first timer, he did an incredible job.

That's wonderful! Glad to hear things went so well! The Parelli program is amazing.

Remember that bits (for the most part) are not bad. It's just a matter of finding a bit that works for your horse and keeping your hands soft and teaching the horse not to be afraid of contact :)

I worked with him again yesterday with it. It's doing wonders for his left turns. I can't wait to work outside with him because he wants to crib on the wall when we're inside and I have to really fight him to get him away from it. We did the weaving through 3 cones and he did awesome. Haven't done any trotting or loping with it yet but my friend said to just get use to using it and then move forward.

Remember, also, if you show him at all, you will have to use a bit, depending on what you show him in.

But I agree, I love using a rope halter on a horse to ride, and work with in general.
