Ok so I might be crazy, but I am seriously considering participating in the ACTHA event that's going on in my area with Arie! It's kind of like a small version of the Extreme Cowboy Race lol. He might be the first Hanoverian to do a trail class like this! Lol! We would have to work on some specific things beforehand but I think we could do pretty well with prior and proper preparation ;) I would love the chance to represent Parelli in a competition like this.

I can get my hands on the L&HB in about a month she will easily let me catch her and look interested when she sees the halter most of the time but she will not catch me though but it is a big improvement for me to be able to go near her in the field without food thanks to the Parelli work we have done

Cool, the L&HB pack will tell you everything you need to know, and more!

Practiced some things for the ACTHA event....even though I'm still not sure I'll participate lol! But it was fun and gave me some new ideas to play with. Practiced backing through an L shape, going over a jump (barrels laying on the ground) at the canter with rhythm, trotting a weave pattern (which we've had down for awhile), going over trot poles, HQ and FQ yields, sideways, canter transitions, cantering nice circles with simple lead changes in a Figure 8 pattern, extending our canter to go a bit faster (it says I might have to do a hand gallop but I can't achieve that in the indoor, it's too small), pulling a bucket and I kinda simulated a rain jacket with a feed bag lol! Overall Arie did REALLY well with it all, he's a little unsure about pulling something behind him but he's getting there.

This sounds great fun, but please can you tell a kiwi what is an ACTH event? As for me I am going to have to tape my mouth shut, after years of chuching away to my horses, I find it so difficult when I want to encourage Raffy forward not to use my voice. It is so difficult. I will just have to get some packing tape and stick it over my mouth. LOL
Winter in NZ isn't actually all that bad, and although I have taken Raffy's shoes off for the next 3 months as we won't be going anywhere, I am still getting quite a lot in at weekends. Week days are no good now, dark when I go to work and getting dark when I get back. Good day today, both on-line and a bit of riding. Even got the horse trailer on to do some work around that.

The event is for the American Trail Horse Association. My horse is a Hanoverian so I'm pretty sure he will be the only warmblood at the event ;) lol! I'm a big believer in cross training and while my goal is dressage with him, this is an excellent thing for us to do!

Okay, so my Parelli level 1 kit came to me in the mail a few days ago. I have listened to the audio cd, read the introduction portion of the first booklet (and chapter one of the theory guide), and am watching dvd disc one. Boy, is it all an information overload! I can't wait to get started. :)

Hi Charligirl, what fun, a whole new world about to open up. I am only Level 2 on-line and just getting going on my freestyle. I was watching an old freestyle video I got on Trade Me (EBay) and this is the 3rd time of viewing, and this time taking notes like mad. Planning to sort out my 4 phases and write them up on bits of paper and go around chanting things like, 'eyes, belly button, legs then reins'. I think my husband thinks I am totally mad!! Working though, in between the showers, I got an hour on Raffy, I have an approx 80ft round pen outlined with electric tape and it is going pretty well. Just finding the supporting rein, or I suppose it is basically teaching him to neck rein quite difficult. Trying to sort my hands out and teach the horse at the same time!! Poor Raffy, he is trying very hard for me!

Sounds like you both have some fun plans ahead! Good luck and have fun!
