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.

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.
