Weekly Task Challenge: Pop Quiz Time!

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 is designed to be a pop quiz for those at the beginning of their journeys and those well on their way. Have fun with it! If you don’t know the answers, contact me or better yet, check out your own study materials!

Quiz Questions:

1. List the 7 games in order and describe the purpose of each game and list at least two keys to each of them.

2. Which of the games are the principle games and which are the purpose games?

3. Draw a picture of a horse or print one from your computer. Label the zones of the horse and write a description of each zone of the horse.

4. Make a list and describe the four savvys.

5. List all gaits and directions your horse should be able to do.

6. How many phases of pressure are there and what do they mean?

7. There are 16 patterns listed in the Parelli Patterns kit. List them and draw a diagram for each one you list.

8. Write what each level’s patterns do for you and your horse. List the typical equipment would be used in that level of the patterns.

9. BONUS: What are the 8 responsibilities for the horse and human?


*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.
