My daughter and I attended a Parelli clinic today, as observers. It was a great experience, but because I had my two younger kids with me I couldn't focus as much, and didn't ask any questions. We hope to go again on Thursday, and leave the younger two with my husband, but for now I have a question.
At one point the trainer was supposed to place her hands on the horse's shoulder and "make" the horse turn around / pivot. She was supposed to stop when the horse did it right. There was something about the hind legs. It seems that the horse wasn't really getting it, and there were several "almosts." However I couldn't figure out what exactly they wanted from the horse?
