Parelli Games
 
Thought some of you might be intersted in seeing some of the Parelli Games. My mom took these videos for me and even though it was definately an off day for Sonny, I think the videos turned out well.

I'm sorry... the parelli stuff just doesnt impress me... only because it's not "parelli"... it's common sense stuff that all trainers do... it's the same techniques with a tiny twist...

but i do have to ask... why are you ok w/ the circle game but not with longing?

I know... I'm in a nasty mood today... you can ignore my post... I think I'm PMSing....

no its ok we have all been there. no biggie. i can do small porcupine stuff with her...nothing with circles! she gets so confused when i attempt to ask her to move away from me(longe). she just does not understand it just yet. i am about to build a round pen in the next month. im sure that i could b part of the problem i may be sending her some mixed signals. could you suggest a propper size for the round pen?? thanks

When I first saw the post, I also thought the same thing. Glad others have posted it. I think all PP did was put "games" together for you and your horse to spend time together and bond. Anyone can do the same thing without spending hundreds of dollars on a "how to spend quality time with your horse".

Sonny reminds me SO much of Montana... it's kind of scary.
You two are doing a great job together!
Thanks for sharing :)

The circle game is ONLY used twice in both directions, nothing more.
Honestly though, to those that are anti-Parelli, just keep rude unwanted comments to yourselves. So what if I'm a "freak" and like Parelli and pay the prices. It's my money and he's my horse. Sonny enjoys the stuff I do with him and is 100% better because of it.

Lucky for me my horse already knew then lol...so I just had to learn how to ask and such.

...wasnt really being rude... just... :oops: Oh well... I really am not that keen on Parelli...I think sonny is a great horse and I think you've done great with him... just... to each his own....

I don't know guys, it seems to me to be raining on Sonny's parade. So what if you don't agree with the way she's training/working with her horse, or if you think Parelli is a pile of horse poop? She wasn't asking for critique on the videos or her methods, just simply sharing videos of her processes in case anyone was interested (and it seems a lot of people on this forum are interested in Parelli/natural horsemanship).
