My journey with horses began on December 25th, 2004 when my husband, Todd, bought me my first horse, Strawberry, for Christmas. I quickly figured out that I did not know much about horses and found that if you ask 10 people the same horse question, you get 10 different answers.
And so my search for answers pointed me to Parelli. I bought the “full enchilada”, (as my husband would say), in the fall of 2005 and I have not looked back.
I had the right attitude coming into the program and Parelli has provided me with the knowledge and tools that I need to be effective. It established both the basic skills required in natural horsemanship and a wonderful education in understanding our horses, especially as a new horse person. Through the home study and clinics, I have since developed the techniques required to accelerate my growth in Parelli. With time, imagination and support, I have accomplished Level 4 with my partner Shiitief and we are currently pursuing higher learning in the sport of Dressage.
I am very excited to be a Parelli Professional, Two Star Parelli Instructor and to do my part to make the world a better place for horses and humans.
