Parelli Natural Horsemanship is revolutionizing the lives of horses and their owners worldwide. It is becoming one of the most popular ways to develop expertise with horses and more and more people are making the change from traditional to natural. No matter what discipline they are involved in: dressage, jumping, cross country, drag hunting, polo, racing or simply happy hacking, Parelli Natural Horsemanship provides the foundation for excellence in all equine endeavors.
With Parelli, horses and people can achieve fun, excellence, truth, and results, naturally, through partnership, communication and the use of psychology – without the use of force, fear, or mechanical means.
Parelli Natural Horsemanship is based on “Love, Language, and Leadership”. More than just the riding and handling of horses, the Parelli philosophy teaches you how to think, act and react around horses. You learn to understand your own needs and emotions, your body language and behavior and how those things differ from that of horses. Combining these traits with the principles of pressure and release you build a relationship based on trust and communication. The results achieved are incredible; a horse that responds with respect, with out fear, one that is light and responsive. A horse that wants to be with you, which makes everything fun.
“Oh if people knew what a comfort to a horse a light hand is… we would know in an instant what is required of us.”
Black Beauty, written by Anna Sewall in 1877
