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 horse turns away.
  • Comes with a brass swivel snap and a latigo popper.
  • Weighted Snap: asset to communication because horse can feel the rope so much sooner and more subtly; provides a counter weight 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 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 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.

    Awesome lead!

    Love love love my 12 foot lead line. Great quality!
    I fully expect this one to last as long as the last one -which was 14 years!!!!
    I've had the others and they just don't work, feel and last the way Parelli lines do.

    New at the Parelli

    So far I am not very coordinated but love the adventure and the possibilities with my 18 year old 18 hand dressage horse. He is big and very anxious but we are both enjoying the work - the 12 foot is enough for me now - until my right and left hand can work well together and separately, I am keeping the 22 ft clean. So far, my 12 foot rope is strong and sturdy!
