Every interaction we have with our horses shapes how they perceive and react to the world, the responsibility is ours as horse owners, riders, and ultimately trainers to understand the true nature of the horse.
Using communication, understanding, and psychology, we cross the prey/predator barrier to learn how horses feel, think, act and play.
I had spent many years in the traditional horse world, and felt there was something missing or pehaps that there was something more to be found in my relationship with horses. It brought me to my first Parelli clinic in 2005 and it changed the course of my life.
There was now way more than just riding. The relationship started on the ground and suddenly there were so many things that my horse and I could do together. I learned about who my horse needed me to be, I understood more about the horses needs and together we developed a deeper partnership. I understood that my horse wasn't being bad but just following her instincts.
I completed Level 4 of the program, received my black string from Pat Parelli and have been an instructor since 2013. I've spend many weeks on the Parelli campus taking courses, assisting courses and studying with Pat. I've met some incredible horse people from around the world.
It doesn’t take talent, it doesn’t take bravery and it doesn’t take years to get there. It takes heart and desire together with a structured program to follow and access to a teacher who’s willing to share everything they know. Someone who's walked the same path.
I want to share that journey with as many people and as many horses as possible. I hope you'll join me.
My family and I live on a 50 acre horse property in Quebec, Canada where I am so grateful to live out my passion everyday as a horse lover, a Parelli Professional, and most of all, a student of the horse.
