Parelli Progress Thread

Okay! Now all of us Parelli students have a thread where we can post about our daily play sessions with our horses, ask questions, vent, bounce ideas around, tell others about exciting new developments, post pics, all that stuff! In the Seven Keys to Success the last Key is Support. This is the idea of this thread, to give other Parelli people support in their journey. I personally won't be posting about any play sessions for a few days because I'm in the middle of moving, however lets hear YOUR stories!

I wish I had Internet on my cell phone, I'd post small updates during the move! Lol. One nice thing that happened this morning though, I went out to put fly masks on and Arie came right over to the fence to greet me and really wanted some attention, he kept following me around asking him to scratch him here and there. For him this is a BIG thing, he's such an independent guy that anytime he OFFERS interraction with me I take it! I felt bad though because when I was walking back to the house he was looking after me like "Why are you leaving?" lol. I haven't had any time to play with him this past week so he's craving play time just as much as I am. Hopefully Saturday will be our first play session at our new home! :) If not then definitely Sunday! His reaction to me now is the polar opposite of what it was 2 years ago. I'm so incredibly proud of him!

Had a good time with Dreamer today my foal. She is getting much much bigger. Haven't played with her in a little while so I just wanted to do some small stuff as I like to play for a week or so then let her off to be with her mammy more than me She did great did lots of friendly game. Worked with one of the horses that have been sent her to be started by dad. He starts horses as a business he doesn't use Parelli but he is letting me work with some of the horses and uses some aspects of what he sees me doing. So worked with a big 16.3hh mare and she was great got the saddle on her and dad was up on her too very quick little learner Took Phoebe in because she is seeing the farrier later will play with her in a little while

That is great rebecca! Are you all moved in yet? And you should post pictures :).

Oh that is cool shauna! I want a baby!

My update:
Sonny had a three day weekend! I don't think he has had one of those since the heavy snow! I had multiple graduations and grad parties this weekend so I thought he might enjoy some time to himself and some peace and quiet, but im sure he missed his usual treats ;) I got down to the farm today and his whole front pasture was flooded! I mean standing water knee deep! I don't even know how it was possible but it is! So unfortunately the outdoor arena was just as bad so sonny and I had to stay in the indoor. He was surprisingly affectionate! Usually when he stays in all day he wants to go explore or eat grass or think about bucking and bite me a whole lot. But today he came out of his stall, rolled twice and then was all mine! He was perfectly content hanging out and getting his forehead scratched. Since he was in an unusally -calm- (i don't think that is the word that I want, but its the first one that comes to mind) mood today we didnt do a whole lot. I actually just kept him on the 12' line and we played with some maintaining gait and direction at the walk and just some basic games and then he got a shower because he was covered from ear to tail in poop and pee. Yuck lol.

Sounds like you and Sonny had fun Emily I'm getting a 22ft rope now So happy :P

Was playing with Phoebe today and started working on our first level 2 stuff of doing transitions on our circling game went pretty well on the left rein had a bit of a melt down on the other rein but got it going well eventually. To be honest I don't know if it's still level 2 I'm working from the old red and blue packs lol I just got a lend of them off of friends so thought I would take them since they were being offered to me Might head out to Dreamer who is being great these days I am loving spending time with her. She is nearly 13hh at 3 months old god she is going to be HUGE. Here's what I did over the past couple of days with her in my blog

I'm going to a clinic now at the end of the month just to watch its from Jackie Chant and she just earned her 4 star status she is coming all the way from New Zealand to Ireland so I'm taking advantage of this opportunity to go watch

Hi folks, I have just found the Horse Forum, and really into my natural horsemanship here in New Zealand. Would love to be able to talk Parelli without being thought over the top. Home sick at the moment but beautiful day (middle of winter) so managed 30 minutes out with Raffy, my Appy/Clydie/Arab X!! The interesting thing I noticed today is that although he loves the pedestal (a couple of pallets on top of each other, with thick ply and carpet on top so he doesn't slip), could stand there for hours, he is very reluctant to step down forwards, he prefers to back off or step off sideways. Thinking about that one.

Ok! I'm back! Lol. All moved in and Arie has settled so well that I have one phrase for you all: BAREBACK AND BRIDLELESS RIDING!!!!!!! Yes that's right, I've had 3 amazing bareback and bridleless rides on him AND we jumped!! We've done w/t and some patterns. WOOHOO!!
    06-16-2010, 05:55 PM
Hi tinac! Welcome! I am no expert, but it sounds to me like maybe he doesnt have the confidence to step forward off of it? If that is the case I believe your friendly game is broken. Try that and see if it helps. Is he unconfident or is he just simply refusing to come off forwards?

WOOO HOOOOOOOO!!!! You go rebecca!!!! You better have some videos for us to drool over soon :)
