Maybe Parelli Will Work...

Hey I'm going to start doing the Parelli courses. I think it could really help me regain my confidence and help my horse be more in tune with me. She is a Left Brain Extrovert so she is VERY playful. She's great on the ground becuase her previous owner and I have done Clinton Anderson ground work and she is really good undersaddle if I ride her everyday but I just thought it would be nice to learn the Parelli ways! Which course should I start doing?

You could start with the 7 games, they are very fun!

Oh yeah I really wanted to learn those thanks!

Do you have any of the DVDs? You could get the Seven Games DVD by itself, which I do highly suggest because it gives you a great visual and explaination of how to do the games and why they work. Going into it blind or just from reading is not a good way to set you or your horse up for success.

Keep up updated on how things go. It's a fabulous program.

I've been labeled anti-parelli becuase I think it is overpriced common sense. My sister-in-law does Parelli w/ her 2 year old Belgium and she really enjoys it. She feels like she gets alot out of it and shes's seen a ton of improvements... I just can't pay the money for it...... You should enjoy though...

I like what Parelli can do, but he has TOO many programs that cost too much it takes a small fortune to get everything out of him even if you buy everything on ebay. I prefer Dennis Reis because he shares the views of both Parelli and Clinton Anderson

Any one who says parelli is just in it for the money... well... they are selling the 4 savvy patterns with the Liberty& Horse Behavior for FREE that's a 1000.00 Value!! For only 447.00!!

Grab it!!

Its simple to follow really and If I were you id start with the lvl 1 pack because it has a lot of valueable information! But they don't sell them on the site because the 4 savvies took the place really and there going to put the levels packs on the savvy club web site!

You can buy all the equitment CHEAP at If you follow through with it use your creative side to work and put the relationship first! You'll have no problems and if you run into it any there a TON of people to help you! I recommend you join the savvy club its saved my life a couple a times HAHA!

Hope I helped! I now STRONGLY believe in Parelli!

Level 3 Student here.

1) Buy starter kit - Halter, 12' line, carrot stick and string.

2) Buy Level 1 pack. Don't get the Liberty & Horse Behavior, Patterns or Success Series until you are ready to be assessed by a Parelli Professional on your lvl 1.

3) Don't buy imitation gear from eBay etc. What you pay for their stuff, from them, if very good quality. I still have my starter kit I bought nearly 7 years ago, and it's still in pretty good condition.

4) Try and find a Professional in your area, or a 'Savvy Group', so if you get stuck, you can ask them.

I have a Left Brain Extrovert as well, and it has helped me get him to respect my space, and that I am alfa, not him.

Now, he canters to me, instead of away from me. We always get comments at shows about how calm he is, especially when the saber-toothed butterfly tries to eat everybody's horse, and they freak out, and Taffy's like "buzz off"

If you have anymore questions, PM me.

I believe the only way you can get the Level 1 is through ebay. Parelli doesn't sell the levels anymore, just the patterns.

As of the 1st of January, Parelli changed their program again - everything is now based on the Patterns - which means that I have to get rid of the video of my Level 3 assessment, and re-do it, using the patterns.

Here is the new Level 1 pack, and what's in it: - GET STARTED - On Line Kit
