Applying Psychology to Precision Riding
Riding with finesse, contact, and precision can be very difficult for both horses and riders.
If you have trouble…
Keeping your hands and legs quiet
Maintaining the ‘correct’ position
Shaping your horse
And your horse…
Cannot find comfort
Gets mad or frustrated by corrections
Is tense or has a negative expression…
The Precision Box is your answer!
We’re excited to bring you another major breakthrough from Linda Parelli that makes beautiful riding achievable.
You’ll see Linda riding her horse, Hot Jazz, to explain how it all works; Two riders learning it for the first time with their horses (RBE and LBI!); and, finally, how The Precision Box applies to jumping! Linda is the master of simulations to build your confidence and skills to take the stress out of Finesse.
Now you will know how to apply psychology and the principles of a true partnership to riding with finesse, contact and precision, from basic to the most advanced levels.
Are you frustrated with your lazy, crazy, naughty, or unpredictable horse? Most horses have behavior problems because of fear, dominance, or confusion.
Once you know where your horse is coming from, you’ll have the keys to change unwanted behavior forever. In this long-awaited DVD set on the revolutionary concept of Horsenality, Linda Parelli takes you on a fantastic horsemanship journey, showing you how to read horses and discover the keys to bringing out the best in them. There are four main Horsenality types to learn about; from there, you’ll determine “cusps” and “spirit level,” in order to get a complete picture.
Linda shows you each Horsenality at Liberty in the round corral, pointing out the key characteristics and demonstrating how to use the right energy and strategies, according to the unique horse’s needs. Finally, you’ll see students with each Horsenality being coached by Linda, both on the ground and in the saddle. Never have a bad horse day again!
