Parelli 12-Foot Training Rope

 The Parelli 12-Foot Training Rope is your every day, every purpose lead rope and training line for developing your feel and your horse's responsiveness and connection. Easy to hold, it glides smoothly through your hands when you need to give your horse more drift.

  • ½-inch diameter smooth yachting braid.
  • 12-feet long with a loop at the end of the rope for quick snap placement.
  • 12-foot length helps keep handler out of kick range if the horse turns away.
  • Comes with a brass swivel snap and a latigo popper.
  • Weighted Snap: an asset to communication because the horse can feel the rope quicker and more subtly; it provides a counterweight so it slows pressure and releases sooner.
  • 6-inches of rope is run back in at the tail, because of this, the handler can feel the end of the rope without having to look down. The rope run-back and the popper add weight for swinging and straightness when throwing.
  • Stamped with the Parelli logo.

Knots You Should Know

 

Pat Parelli was inspired by Tom Dorrance's advice that horses need to be able to drift and teeter. During groundwork, your horse needs to be able to move out a bit and have enough room to turn and face you, get control, and then come back. For this reason, you should choose a rope that moves through your hands smoothly to avoid jerking your horse. Parelli rope is smooth, slightly forgiving, and will flow through your hands as your horse needs additional space. Rather than drag your horse from point A to point B, our ropes are designed to allow for drift and teeter by both the nature of what they are made of, as well as the length.

At 1200 lbs of pressure, our snap will break. The break weight is there so the snap will break if the horse pulls back, gets tangled, or falls while being tied rather than the horse being severely hurt or killed. This is also why a horse should never be left alone with only a halter on, the halter will not break if it catches on something.

The 12-Foot Training Rope is perfect for doing the Parelli Seven Games.

Parelli 12' Training Rope

These ropes are an absolute must ! I bought my first equipment over 20 years ago and still have that same equipment. It is used pretty much every single day. The quality is second to none and well worth the price. You may want more than one, if you have more than one horse and want one handy to get to if your barn is very big. The "feel" you get with this rope and snap makes a huge difference to your horse learning quickly in a kind manner. :)

Training rope, lead rope

I have been riding and packing horses in the backcountry of Colorado for over 40 years. I have used Parelli lead ropes almost exclusively for the past 20 years. They are a lead rope, tie up/down rope, training rope in all weather types. Especially valuable in very wet conditions as these ropes don't sop up water and retain their shapes even when below freezing. And as a tie up rope, when a set-back horse decides to do so, this is the only rope that does not break with our stout quarter and quarter-draft crosses. My family and I use them with our saddle and pack horses every time we ride. Which is late spring to early winter around Gunnison, CO.
