I am taking lessons now with my barn manager/landlord Erin Murphy, and I have already learned so much in just two sessions. We’re not using Rocky because his feet are too sore (countdown to next trim/measuring for boots … 18 days). On Tuesday I got to play with Dave, an “impulsive” LBE, and today I played with Parker, a “dull” LBI. Both are very nice, friendly horses who have lived in Parelli circumstances with Parelli humans for years — Dave for his whole life, and Parker at least for several years although I don’t know his life story.
In both sessions, the main theme was energy. Specifically, my energy, and how the horse relates to it.
