Pat Parelli because of his martial arts background came up with the concept of awarding people specific color strings for their achievement in his Horse-man-ship Levels program. Everyone starts off in the Parelli Program starts off with a white string and as you achieve a level you are awarded a special colored string. Red for Level 1, Blue for Level 2, Green for Level 3 and Black for Level 4.
Colors: Our Premier color is white.
We also have fun custom colors that you can special order: vaquero, purple, lime, burgundy.
Special Note: Red, Blue, Green and Black Savvy Strings are given as official awards for official graduates of Level 1, 2, 3 and 4 respectively. They are also available for purchase by official graduates only.
6-Foot long, smooth 1/4 inch yachting braid, looped end for easy attachment, latigo popper.
Designed especially for leading and tying your bridled horse: instead of using the reins to lead or tie your horse, you can use this handy string which loops around your horse's neck or onto the noseband/bosalito. One of its many other uses includes handling foals and gently teaching them to follow a feel while allowing more drift. Choose between Blue or White.
The Parelli 12-Foot Training Rope is your every day, every purpose lead rope and training line for developing your feel and your horse’s responsiveness and connection. Easy to hold, it glides smoothly through your hands when you need to give your horse more drift. “Hands that close slowly and open quickly have more feel” Pat Parelli
½ inch diameter smooth yachting braid.
12-feet long with a loop at the end of the rope for quick snap placement.
12-foot length helps keep handler out of kick range if horse turns away.
Comes with a brass swivel snap and a latigo popper.
Weighted Snap: asset to communication because horse can feel the rope so much sooner and more subtly; provides a counter weight so it slows pressure and releases sooner.
6-inches of rope is run back in at the tail, because of this the handler can feel the end of the rope without having to look down. The rope run-back and the popper add weight for swinging and straightness when throwing.
Stamped with Parelli logo.
When it’s time to expand your horse’s confidence and step up the challenge, you’ll need a 22’ line. The extra length enables more sensitive or scared horses to drift, and allows you to gain respect from greater distances in advanced ground skills. Our 22 ft. Line has the same snap featured on our 12 ft. but the latigo popper has been replaced with a "handy' loop handle and is the perfect tool for On Line Level 2 skills and Get Ready for Liberty from the Savvy Series. “Longer lines, greater challenges, more advanced ground skills” Pat Parelli
Also referred to as: 22-Foot Line; 22-Foot Lead Rope; 22-Foot Training Rope, 22-Foot Ring Rope; 22-Foot Snap-Line
½ inch smooth yachting braid with easy and quick snap placement loop, swivel snap leather popper and weighted end
The popper has been replaced with a loop to form a handle on the end.
The loop allows the handler to feel the end of the rope without having to look down. The loop adds weight for swinging and straightness when throwing
Good for large horses when a 12-foot Line isn’t long enough to be out of kick range if horse turns away (such as a large Warmblood or Draft).
Designed for ground skills.
Smooth, flexible, resistant to sweat.
Swivel Snap connects to the looped end of the line to allow for replacement.
Swivel Snap rated up to 1200lbs.

In 1987, on Pat’s first trip to Australia, he ran into an Horseman Legend Morris Wright. Morris was the number one proponent of the Jeffery method of taming wild Brumbys (Mustangs), and he used a 22-foot rope made of rawhide. When Pat came back to the states he trialed his now famous yachting braid. Over time it has become one of the most popular products that Pat has ever produced.
The reason this is an essential tool in your Parelli program journey is because horses are great judges of distance and approach. If you only use a 12 foot rope when educating your horse on the ground, your horse will soon become bored and you will become ineffective. Using the 22 foot rope correctly has a very similar psychological effect as what you might expect if you used a round corral.
The Parelli Horseman's Halter is different than any other halter on the market. Pat perfected the design and used to tie them himself on the way to clinics (someone else was driving of course!) Today Parelli halters are still hand-tied using smooth yachting braid (which is almost unbreakable) with simple knots that strategically balance on your horse's head.
12 Foot Rope
Pat's training line is way more than a lead rope. Being 12 feet long it gives you the ability to direct and support your horse from the ground and stay a safe distance away. The average lead rope is 7 feet long. The additional 5 feet that is on your training line gives you more safety and control while allowing your horse to also feel safe by allowing him to drift when he is unconfident.
Perfect for advanced one-rein driving or as a lightweight 22-foot play line. Comes with a brass finger snap at one end and leather popper at the other end. Constructed with thinner, lighter rope than our standard 9, 12, and 22 foot Lines. Has the same Â¼-inch braid as our Savvy Strings.
Linda designed this when she was looking for a lighter line that would test a horse’s softness but still provide a physical connection at an advanced level. Made from the same ¼-inch braid as the Savvy String, but 22-foot long with optional delicate snap! Feather Lines are also perfect for long-lining and ground driving. The 22-foot Feather Line rope comes in a set of 2. Ideal for refining your On Line play, including Zone 5 driving and long-lining. Ask your horse to respond to feather-light touch as a savvy test of higher level contact and connection on the ground.
NOTE: Snap not included.
Take your communication with your horse to the next level with our 45-foot Ground Training Line. This is a Parelli designed softened version of a Roping Lariat. It is an essential tool for developing your horsemanship skills on the ground from greater distances, particularly from Levels 3 to Level 4 On Line, as you advance
"Pat had the lay of this nylon lariat deliberately softened for horse handling. It has life, sensitivity and lightness." Pat Parelli
Improve your handiness, your drive and draw, the clarity of your phases, and your overall connection with your horse.This product is ideal for dealing with wild or un-started horses as it allows the horse maximum drift as well as more agility for the horseman.
Pat Parelli's first horse training mentor was Troy Henry from Clovis, California. He shared with Pat the psychological advantages of teaching the horse all of his basic education on the ground in a round corral as well as on line. Troy always used a 45-foot line. You had to be very athletic and handy in order to use this tool
When Pat first started doing his clinics in the early 1980s, it became obvious this was a great tool, but not necessarily a great one to start with, hence the reason for the 12 and 22-foot lines. The difference between the 45-foot training line and the others is the material. The yachting braid is softer on your hands but also heavier, the 45-foot line is made from a triple soft Lariat material and is much lighter but still has the special feel that horses respond positively to.
The reason the 45-foot rope has a psychological effect on horses is because they are great judges of distance and approach, and it blows their minds how you can be so effective and communicative from such a distance.
Used correctly, your horse will soon want to connect to you and follow your suggestions even if you drop the rope. Suggested for solid Level 3 students and above.
