lol one of the ladies I work with doing Parelli with her horses has some cats that are always chasing the strings. She calls it doing "kitty parelli" but the horses just look at the cats like "What are they doing??" lol.

haha. Also just to add a thought i had to undo the savvy string from the carrot stick & i practiced on the fence hitting one spot (by swirling the rope around (forwards & backwards)) 10 times & once i could do it ten times going one way i would go the other way & then swap hands, once i got the hang of that i added them together. & tried again (i found it best to get the hang of that before i went any firther with parelli. good luck with parelli in the future.

Practice should help

Hi,
Just takes practice. That happened a lot to me too when I first started using one. It still happens once in awhile. I'd spend a few minutes each day just practicing swinging it around without a horse there.
