Savvy String wraping around Carrot Stick

Ok, so I tried loosening my grp, but it still wraps around the Carrot Stick! I'm to the point of frustration with it! Any help?

Was it you that said you were at a Parelli barn? Is there someone who could work with you hands on?

When does it wrap around the stick? When you are playing the Friendly Game? Or what?

No, when I'm just swinging it, the book says that you need to "be able to swing carrot stick with out the savvy string wraping around it"

I really wouldnt worry about it, I skipped all that when I started really SHH :P

And are you on the old parelli packs.... There really helpful in the process but you should probably be working on the patterns and the games.

I am diong the Parelli Level 1 stuff. I think I want to stick with it because I want to do the basics of it.

Yea, I would stick with the Level 1 stuff for now. Then move on to the Patterns.

It's like, I know what you need to do to stop the string from wrapping around the stick, but I can't explain it! Lol. Arrgghhh.......ummm.......well are you swinging it over head?

You just need to practice in the yard (lol not in the house ) A carrot stick is not much different than any other type of whip and you need to learn how to control the end through fluid movements.

Wear sunglasses and go fling it around...Try not to whoop your own butt with it and learn how it works. You'll look like a goof ball for the first 10 minutes or so then you'll start to figure it out!

Good Luck and don't poke your eye out!!!
