Looking for a PNH Episode
 
Hey all!

I was running the dial a couple of days ago, and caught the last few minutes or so of a PNH episode on RFD. The episode caught my interest, and I'd like to see the whole thing, but I have no idea what to even search for to see if it's going to be on again any time soon, or when part 2 is going to be aired.

The part of the episode I saw featured a 20-something looking girl with a large black warmblood (a gelding, I believe - I didn't catch the name) at what appeared to be a tour stop (the session was in a large arena with all the lights, pomp, audience, etc.). LP described the horse as a "bipolar" ex-dressage horse. The horse and owner were described as having a great relationship at liberty, on line, and in the halter/bridleless, but the horse had a great deal of anxiety once the bit and bridle were introduced. The girl got the horse bridled and mounted, but upon observing the horse become tense and upset over riding with the bit even on a slack rein, LP decided that she was going to climb aboard and ride the horse - that was the end of the episode, with a "To Be Continued."

If anyone knows the name of the episode, or when it or the second part will be aired, I'd love to catch the session in its entirety.

Much obliged!! :D

The second part aired this week where Linda gets on the horse. It was interesting, but seriously not "all that". The basic idea was that LP matched the energy of the horse to make herself interesting to him. She basically let the horse lead, maintained her calm and seat while moving to his movements, etc. That's all she really explained except for saying that timing was everything. Most of the riding she did with him and whatever she was doing with him (other than explaining that she was matching his energy and talked of timing) the audience just observed her riding him. It wasn't terribly enlightening.

Thanks rockinD!

I was just curious to see how she finished the session with that horse, as I'm not a regular Parelli viewer. I didn't really expect to get the secrets of the universe or anything. Watching the first half, I had a good idea of how I would have handled the situation, and was curious to see the results of Linda's route. I love comparing notes with my television sometimes, lol. Thanks again!! :-)
