a little something for the weekend

SONY DSCi won a Parelli Training DVD set with this video submission!

this is the DVD set i picked!!  it's right where billy and i are regarding the saddle anyway ;)

colt starting with pat parelli is the other DVD set i'm interested in.

a great blog about colt starting vs. colt breaking.

here is a great blog outlining the starting of a young horse.


  1. Congrats!!! That's so awesome! How old is Billy?
    I really want the perfect start and colt starting. Please, please, please share all about pre-saddle training!

  2. billy just turned 3 :) i won't really ride him until he is 4, however i would like to be up on him a few times this fall. we'll see! the time table is totally up to him! i will be sure to share what i learn!! and i'll let you know if it's a good one ;) (which i'm sure it is! LOL)

  3. Are you waiting until he is 4 out of preference? Awesome :). Thanks so much!!

  4. yes. i prefer to wait to ride my horses until they are 4. most of my OWN horses that i've started were 4 when i began riding them and things just went better. they are more mature mentally and physically. it's important to me that the knees are mostly grown over before i start riding and that they're backs are stronger as well. the horses of my own that i started never had any lameness issues and some are well into their 20's and still going strong ;) that's just my own personal preference :)
