Build the relationship with your horse in 10 minutes a day

If you don’t think you have time to try Parelli techniques, or if you think all that groundwork takes too much time, here is a no-excuses approach. Each tip requires a maximum of 10 minutes a day. Even if you board your horse and can only get out a few times a week, you can still use that time to radically improve the relationship you have with your horse.

Each month, we'll be adding new tips, so be sure to check back for the latest updates.

Before you start, get a little spiral notebook and write notes on your horse’s reactions to each tip. It will be easier to see where you started and track your results.
