When it's time to expand your horse's confidence and step up the challenge, you'll need a 22-foot line. The extra length enables more sensitive or scared horses to drift, and allows you to gain respect from greater distances in advanced ground skills. Our 22' Line has the same snap featured on our 12' Line and is the perfect tool for On Line Level 2 skills and Get Ready for Liberty from the Savvy Series.
"Longer lines, greater challenges, more advanced ground skills." Pat Parelli
In 1987, on Pat's first trip to Australia, he ran into an Horseman Legend Morris Wright. Morris was the number one proponent of the Jeffery method of taming wild Brumbys (Mustangs), and he used a 22-foot rope made of rawhide. When Pat came back to the states he trialed his now famous yachting braid. Over time it has become one of the most popular products that Pat has ever produced.
The reason this is an essential tool in your Parelli program journey is because horses are great judges of distance and approach. If you only use a 12 foot rope when educating your horse on the ground, your horse will soon become bored and you will become ineffective. Using the 22 foot rope correctly has a very similar psychological effect as what you might expect if you used a round corral.
I have purchased multiple types of trainig lines in this past and this is by far the best quality to date. Having a custom color is just an added bonus to an already amazing product. This is the amazing quality I have come to expect from Parelli. Always pleased.
In life one encounters many teachers, directly proportional to our willingness to be teachable. While studying under Pat when he was out of Clements CA, I remember his words "take the time it takes so it will take less time". I used to hate it. Over time the more teachable I became the more value these words held. Today they are a mantra for life, including horsemanship.
I believe Pats tools always have the goal of serving a higher purpose than just the obvious.
I bought the 22' line in black and a black Parelli halter. Both are excellent quality. The rope on both has a heavy, soft feel. I had bought a copy-cat version of the halter on eBay earlier this year, and the rope on that version is soft, but doesn't seem as dense. And I had gotten a copy-cat version of a 12' lead from Amazon, and it also is not quite as heavy. By the time you factor in the member discount from Parelli, the copy-cat versions were not any cheaper, either.
I have a yearling straight-Egyptian Arabian with an extremely fine head and a two year-old half-Arabian/half Paint filly with a less extreme but still Arabian profile. The regular size Parelli halter is bigger on the yearling, but still works on both of them and gives them both a little room to grow. Their web halters from Schneider's are a size small. I debated about getting a smaller/Arabian size in the Parelli halter; now I'm glad I didn't.
A word about customer service--the order arrived quickly, even though it was Christmastime. Parelli shipped a white line by mistake, but when I emailed them about the mistake, they shipped a black one out the same day, before I had even printed the label and boxed up the white one to return it. Very well done!
The line is terrific, but I’m not crazy about the snap. Maybe I’ll grow to like it with more use. I love the vaquero color choice.
Well these white ones are great but the only reason we bought them is because we have had 4 colored ones go flat at the ends. One of which flipped around the end of my finger and injured it. Boo!
