Confidence in the saddle
Level 2 FreeStyle
Confidence in the Saddle
FreeStyle riding is an essential component of any well-rounded horsemanship education. It begins here in Level 2, where you introduce your horse to the Seven Games under saddle.
Here you will learn fundamental techniques that will ensure that your horse is confident and responsive under saddle.
LEVEL 2 FREESTYLE ESSENTIALS
Must have tools for your success in Level 2 FreeStyle
The Parelli Natural Hackamore is widely used for young horses and relaxed riding (Freestyle or on the trail). Made form the same, lovely subtle line as our halters, it's perfect for teaching horses to be soft and confident when riding, starting or re-starting horses that are afraid of the rider's hand or bit.
The Bareback pad will make you feel like you are glued to your horse, yet are thin enough to offer the feel of bareback riding. The pad cinches up as snugly as a saddle and is designed with no stirrups to promote balance and confidence in your riding skills. This Pad will prove invaluable to you as you develop an independent seat.
