:) :D :lol: 8) :P
YES! Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

More PLEASE please please please! :twisted:

This is soooo helpful!

I didn't know that horses even could do some of these movements!

What a goal to strive for - surely a horse that does things like this and has fun doing it is the best horse he/she can be?

Pardon my French (ha ha !) But I always thought 'rassembler' simply is the french verb for 'collecting'?
And then collecting in the general sense like collecting stamps etc.

Or so Grandfather told me....So I always thought it simply meant collecting a horse as well...

Madeleine?

I was just wondering because Madeleine said:
'I guess rassembler means collection'

Horsenality:
horsenalities are used by Parelli to describe the most common characters in horses, there are 4 horsenalities:
leftbrain extravert, leftbrain introvert, rightbrain extravert and rightbrain introvert

leftbrain means that your horse is confident and maybe even a bit dominant, it is called leftbrain because Parelli says the left part of the brain is the thinking part.

The right part of the brain is the part which is about instincts, such as running in case of the horse. Those are the unconfident horses, the horses that are scared and not sure about themselves.

then you also have extravert which is an exuberant horse, a horse that moves a lot, and there is the introvert, a horse that is more inside himself

and those things make combinations

look here for more info:

I split the part about Relaxation of the poll and moved it to the Riding section, just in case anyone tries to find it. ;)

It would be the same as anyone else's definition. We only make up terms when no terms previously existed (like chasing tigers and backward goats). :D But we don't try to redefine an existing term.

What specifically are you asking Ivy?

Here's a nice video of leg yielding.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HcA5bw2 ... re=channel

Actually, another of Jane Savoie's videos gave some interesting information on the degree of bend in the leg yield. The straighter the horse is, the more he/she has to reach with the hind legs. So a better gymnastic exercise if the horse just gives a wee bit at the poll (to one side), enough to see the edge of the nostrils and nothing more, but that you shouldn't ask for a bend of the neck or bend through the body.

A leg yield for me is always moving forward and not just straight sideways (to me, that would be a sidepass).

Karen,

Thanks so much!
