I've seen NH trainers (local included) doing that wiggling with the snap attached and never liked it. What is the point of it in 1st place? Wouldn't be easier just touch the chest with the stick to ask to back up from the distance?

I think that your point do make sense, but these things will happen if the person isnt using it properly! At the bottom the the snap, there is a rotating thing so the rope doesnt get twisted, tighter or shorten! Without this, the horse would be in a LOT more discomfort.

Savvygirl559, my main concern is that the snap thunks the horse under the chin unnecessarily.

The swivel function of the PNH snap of course is a good thing.

I have the parelli halter and lead and I love it! The snap doesn't bang on the horses chin unless your perpously trying to ( which you shouldn't). They aren't that heavy, and it doesn't swing around to much. Also I love it beacuase it has the swivle snap part, so your halter never gets twisted or anything like that.
I guess all I can say is I love it! And so does my horse!

Also, the snap doesn't have to be used as a phase 4, my Parelli Instructor taught me another method :) I'll use the Yoyo game (4) as an example!
Phase 1, waggling the finger - Phase 2, waggling the rope (side to side motion) - Phase 3, waggle a little harder on the rope - Phase 4, keep the same pressure on the rope BUT add a driving motion towards the horse with the carrot stick - Phase 5, add a harder motion with the stick & keeping the same phase 3 pressure on the rope :)
I like that method! Me and my horse are only at the driving game but that is a nice way....was worried about playing that game know wiggling the rope won't get him to move! :)

I want to get a new rope for my mare and I can't decide between the parelli snap or just a rope with no strap !
