What in the world is going on here?


I do not for the life of me understand what this woman is trying to do with this horse, and what this could possibly accomplish besides making the horse head shy. Maybe making him yield to pressure? Can anyone shed some light on this?

Supposedly this is off of a Pat Parelli DVD.

She's trying to make the horse yield to pressure by backing up when the rope is swung around, but as she's giving no release when the horse does the right thing, he's ten shades of confused.

This is a perfect example of why you need more "tools" to ask the same thing. Horse obviously isn't "getting it" from this cue. Try another. But Parelli uses primarily this method, so this is pretty much all you will see. Perhaps even letting the horse be for a minute and trying again would help. UGH.

Looks like a very willing horse, too. Too bad he ended up in the hands he did.

That was what I was thinking, I'm working on pressure with my disrespectful gelding, but not like this.

This is an old video that has had many discussions. Linda Parelli has a horse with only ONE eye who is, obviously overwhelmed. It is definitely not a good example of what she preaches.....

The idiot is trying to make the horse back up. When the horse backs up the idiot is supposed to stop swinging the rope. Eventually the horse will back up by jjust wagging your finger. But unfortunately neither the idiot or the horse know what the heck is going on. If done correctly the horse would be backing with just a wag of the finger by the end of the tape.

I didn't watch the entire tape, it looks like it just gets worse.

To me this video is a great example of when somethings not working try something else. I was working with a horse who insisted on doing this backup by going sideways / diagonally. I grabbed my carrot stick to help keep him straight. Worked within 3 goes.

I REALLY REALLY dislike seeing horses get wailed on the jaw/chin with a hard piece of metal... :/ I will only use rope halters without a metal clip to really work a horse; if it's grooming and tacking up I don't mind the metal clips. I think those buckles do more damage than people think.
