Weekly Task Challenge: Put Your Nose On It, Put Your Feet On It

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 the game we've all see Pat Parelli play, the "Put Your Nose On It" and "Put Your Feet On It." Try it using your 12', 22', and 45' lines and at liberty! Try it with and without your carrot stick. For those if you who studied the Level 2 Kit, put your bell back on your carrot stick to make yourself aware of how often you are using it. For the put your feet on it, once you get good,. work on placing each foot, one at a time. Once you have it on the ground, try it while mounted! Isolate, seperate, recombine! Have fun and be creative.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.
