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.

    Training Line

    I have used several different lines to groundwork my QH. This one is by far the best. Not to mention that the blue looks great with a Palomino. Pretty is as pretty does and this line does pretty fine.

    Love the lighter ropes

    The new, colorful ropes feel long and light after using my previous 12-foot-line for 10 years. The new rope is easier on my body and my horse likes it too. I also like having the colors as it makes it easier for people to see whose halter is whose when they are standing too far away to read the little tags we put on them.

    My first Parelli rope clip broke...Buck just walked off. I was really funny. I had the rope since 2005 and it had many many hours of use. Thank you for making such great stuff. I bet it was made in America!

    There is no better lead rope on the market!

    Parelli lead ropes are the only ones I buy. They last and last, wash up nice and if they need something like a new popper its not expensive.
