The only help I have had with my journey in the Parelli program is 2 clinics and 2 lessons. That's it. All of which have been in the past couple years. All the rest of my learning came from the Levels packs, the Savvy Club DVDs and magazines, anything I learned at their tour stops, but most of all from my own work with my horse. They gave me the concepts, now it's up to me to become an independent learner and experiment. If I become an independent learner, and I can think systematically, then I can fix any problem when it arises and I won't need the help of anyone else....because they gave me the tools on how to be a problem solver, but most importantly, a problem preventer. I will say that I do feel I am a very good student, I don't just watch things, I study it, I watch things WAY more than once. I don't take learning how to be a horse-woman lightly, I'm very serious about it. I want to be the best me I can be for my horse, I want to be able to develop him to higher levels of performance and do it with grace and lightness.....and for him to have a smile on his face the whole time.
