Licensed Parelli 2-Star Jr Instructor
To best assist you and your horse, I evaluate each of you at your current level. Then, based on those assessments, together we will come up with a goal, plan and timeframe for (1) building a solid foundation and (2) resolving issues.
Even though a good foundation will improve everything you do with your horse, most instructors specialize rather than teach foundation. My instruction focuses on getting a good solid foundation for your horse.
If you have an award winning barrel-racing horse but can't get him to load in the trailer, foundation is missing. The same applies if your horse has the perfect Dressage piaffe but can't stand for your farrier.
The Parelli Natural Horsemanship Program is a home-study method of horse training that teaches expertise and success with horses based on the way horses relate and communicate in their natural world – hence the term “natural horsemanship.”
However, many students need support in order to accelerate their horsemanship results. So, Pat Parelli created the Parelli Professionals Program to build instructors he could trust to teach his program with integrity and who he could confidently recommend to students of Parelli Natural Horsemanship.
Choosing a Licensed Parelli Professional means that students can be confident the instructor has Pat Parelli's stamp of approval. They can trust that their instructor will teach Pat Parelli's education program without variation from Pat's standards, a proven training method for teaching horses and people.
Why study with a Licensed Parelli Professional?
Anyone can claim to be a natural horsemanship instructor, but only Licensed Parelli Professionals have the seal of approval to teach the Parelli Program.
You can also be confident that Licensed Parelli Professionals have up-to-date knowledge, having studied regularly with higher level Parelli Instructors and with Pat and/or Linda Parelli.
