I can be described as lover of life, an animal lover, and lover of education. I am constantly striving for knowledge and learning opportunities. I've been around horses my entire life. I enjoy working with horses and their human partners through natural horsemanship philosophies, natural balance bare foot hoof care, reiki, red-light therapy, essential oils, aromatherapy, crystal healing, chromotherapy, flower essences, and more. I am a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher who offers treatments for people, horses, dogs, cats, and other creatures great and small. I also teach Reiki classes for those interested in learning how to treat themselves, their loved ones, and even their animals!

Weekly Task Challenge: Tying, Stepping on Rope, and Remaining Left-Brained

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.)

Horses are left brained when they are calm while being tied of when they step on the rope without panicing. Practice closing your hand slowly and opening them quickly on your leadline, simulating tying or your horse stepping on the rope, how does he react if at all? Next, if that is successful, and you believe you horse is confident, brave, and ready, practice tying your horse using the knots we learned a few months ago (the knots to know), also practice with your horse, stepping on the rope and relaxing. Be safe, creative and have fun with it.

*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.
