  1. Wow, Christi, I can see this helping me a great deal. Think your video tips are going to help me be more successful with my LBE who likes to overreact to my clumsiness in rope and stick handling.  Although I haven't made it back to Sundowner Kranz to study with you I am continually watching videos and trying to improve my relationship with my horse and get more competent at Parelli.   Thank you for making these video tips available.  Carol Robinson
