Weekly Task Challenge: Get you tools together

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!)

School is just around the corner (we already started back at CU), and it is a great time to check your tools (equipment)! Do you have everything you need to communicate with your horse? How does your equipment look anyway? Are you truly using the right things to get the job done? I know that I could use some new leadlines (or at least clean them) and would love a Cradle Bridle some day.I've also identified that I need a new saddle for Lola (I don't have one that fits her) and should get something sooner rather than later (looking for a Wintec Wide English, still--think I'll be going new at this stage of the game and want some MDC stirrups too!). In any event, this week's challenge is to evalutate your tools, clean them, buy some, and sell the stuff you don't need. It is better to be prepared and have everything in good order! Remember tools are one of the Parelli, Seven Keys to Success (Attitude, Knowledge, Tools, Technique, Time, Imagination, Support). AS a bonus to this week's task, here is an article to read!
