Want to level up your communication between you and your horse?

 

Let us introduce you to the Carrot Stick!

 

The Carrot Stick is a fundamental product in the Parelli Program. It acts as an extension of your arm in the saddle and on the ground, giving you a more extended reach for closer communication.

It is not a whip. You can stroke, guide, and support your horse while teaching him the Parelli Fundamentals. It is especially valuable on your journey to bridle-less riding.

Features & Benefits
  • The traditional leather loop end is perfect for attaching your savvy string or a flag.
  • A unique molded grip featuring a modern scroll design and the Parelli logo. This Golf Gripa™ handle is a Parelli custom design and is easy to handle.
  • 4-foot, non-flex fiberglass shaft with a solid core gives flexibility and strength. This flexibility results in firm pressure but will not sting when used correctly.
  • Four feet is the approximate length of the horse's leg on the ground which makes for a good safety measurement allowing you to stay out of the kick zone.
  • Four feet is the approximate length of the horse's neck, making it an excellent tool for control and safety when playing On Line or riding freestyle. 
  • The extra 4-feet also transforms your tall body into a long body so you can effectively communicate with your horse.
  • The savvy string is not included. 
More Info

When Pat refers to long body logic, it simply means having an extension of your arm as an integral part of relating to your horse. As Pat says, some people like to get it done with just carrots, while others like to get it done with a whip to show the horse "who is boss”.

Neither one is right. You need to become an extreme middle-of-the-roadist to be effective and understood. This is why Pat chose this color and called it the carrot stick!

The original carrot stick was created in orange to remind you of a carrot and to stay centered. Since that first color, we have since created a multitude of colors to choose from at the request of our customers. 

 

No matter what color you choose, you will be well equipped to build your horse's confidence, support your cues, or stroke your horse with it, both on the ground and while riding. The hardest part of this decision is which color to choose!

Leslie Kazadi Teacher recommended - 09/18/2019 "I have no basis for comparison, but I am taking some equine science classes and needed to buy some training tools. The teacher recommended all Parelli products, so that’s what I got. Everything seems to b top quality, AND I got matching pretty purple, so I don’t get them mixed up w another student. Super happy!"
Kim Concannon Great tool to use in training - 01/01/2020 "Like all the Parelli products I own, the Carrot Stick is terrific to use in training my horse to stay in his space and stand still when asked for any amount of time. It can also be used as a gentle reminder if he loses concentration. I’ve only been using it for two weeks, and he’s like a different horse. He doesn’t resent it at all but seems to understand what’s being asked and willingly responds. Another great tool from the Parelli family. Thank you!"
Krista Venezia Quality Equipment - 04/04/2020 "I’ve ordered Parelli Equipment many times over the last several years, and I have never been dissatisfied! No one has the quality Parelli does!!!! I love my horsey stuff! It makes playing with our horses that much more fun and correct :)"
