12-Foot Training Line
The Parelli 12-Foot Training Rope is your every day, every purpose lead rope and training line for developing your feel and your horseâ€™s responsiveness and connection. Easy to hold, it glides smoothly through your hands when you need to give your horse more drift.
Ââ€œHands that close slowly and open quickly have more feelâ€ Pat Parelli
Pat Parelli was inspired by Tom Dorranceâ€™s advice that horses need to be able to drift and teeter. During ground work, your horse needs to be able to move out a bit and have enough room to turn and face you, get control and then come back. For this reason, you should choose rope that moves through your hands smoothly to avoid jerking your horse. Parelli rope is smooth, slightly forgiving and will flow through your hands as your horse needs additional space. Rather than drag your horse from point A to point B, our ropes are designed to allow for drift and teeter by both the nature of what they are made of, as well as the length.
At 1200 lbs of pressure, our snap will break. The break weight is there so the snap will break if the horse pulls back, gets tangled, or falls while being tied rather than the horse being severely hurt or killed. This is also why a horse should never be left alone with only a halter on, the halter will not break if it catches on something.
The 12-Foot Training Rope is perfect for doing the Parelli Seven Games.
