Weekly Task Challenge: Finesse on Horseback

If you don't know what to do, have little time, or are just feeling stuck, try the weekly task challenge as a way to at least do something with your horse! (It just may motivate you to do more.)

Level 1
Have someone drag a plastic tarp in front of you while you follow it around.


Level 1 Advanced
Have someone drag a bag of cans in front of you while you follow it.

Level 2
Place 2 cones 6 feet apart and draw a line 22 feet from the cones Back your horse across the line and then back him through the cones.

Level 3
Ask your horse to go sideways for 50 feet in 9-11 seconds.

*Weekly tasks are based on many different Parelli resources I have studied as well as my own ideas on how to proceed through my journey. Some of the content was copied to make it easier to put up in a timely manner. Please consult http://www.parelli.com for any official instructions or materials.
