Weekly Task Challenge: Let's Play Footsie!

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

This week's task challenge is to play with your horses feet and legs. Practice picking your horses feet up from one side, from both sides, in different order. Use your savvy string to pick up his foot, tap his leg to ask for his foot. Try leading your horse by using your rope, try the fronts first, then the rears (if your horse is ready). Massage your horses legs, all over, all the way up. Try to think of may other way to interact with his feet and legs (please do share). Tasks like this can help with the farrier, help if he gets tangles in a fence, help if the vet needs to do something to them, and much more! Be creative, be safe, and have fun!

Questions? Let me know! Have a great week!

*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.
