Parelli Natural Horsemanship
The Parelli program of natural horsemanship was founded in 1981 by lifelong horseman Pat Parelli. A former rodeo bronc rider, horse trainer and all-around horse lover, Pat created the program based on his keen observation of horse behavior, psychology and communication. Early on, he realized that horses already had all the skills they needed to thrive and relate with their kind. It was adding the human element that complicated things. Pat discovered that a life-changing human-horse partnership is possible once people begin to “think, feel, act, and play like a horse.”
Based on respect for and love of horses – and understanding horse nature and psychology – the Parelli method enables anyone at any level to have fun with horses and achieve amazing results…naturally. The Parelli method allows horse lovers at all levels and disciplines to achieve success through love, language and leadership.
