Level 1 On Line

Essential skills for safety, confidence and fun on the ground

Getting started the right way

Learning how horses think, feel, act, and play allows you to communicate with them through a language they understand. This all happens through the revolutionary Parelli® Seven Games. In Level One, you’ll learn:

  • How to guide horses more naturally—And become their partner.
  • The Seven Games and how they can be applied in every situation with a horse—From diagnosing problems to prescribing solutions for behavioral issues as well as everyday training and exerciseneeds. 
  • How to be safe.
  • Have fun!

Level One in the Parelli Program is the doorway to your future success with horses, no matter how ambitious or humble your goals. Level One is about staying safe with your horse, and developing a language together using the Seven Games so that you and your horse may accomplish your goals.

This Level is practicing the first "Savvy" which is On Line—Meaning, it will teach you how to effectively handle horses on the ground, with the
use of a rope or line
. This is the ideal entry point into the Parelli Program, no matter your level with horses.
