The Parelli Program, founded in 1981 by lifelong horseman and teacher Pat Parelli, combines in-depth equine psychology and common sense communication techniques into the ultimate recipe for horse and rider success. The Parelli method allows horse owners at all levels of experience to achieve success without force, partnership without dominance and harmony without coercion.
Since coining the term Natural Horsemanship together in 1991, Pat and his wife and teaching partner Linda have worked tirelessly to perfect their at-home learning program with input from more than 200,000 students across 35 countries.
As two of the world’s preeminent equine behaviorists, Pat and Linda continue to tutor royalty, advise Olympic and Paralympic medalists and captivate global audiences of recreational riders at sold-out venues worldwide.
The popularity and success of the Parelli Program has allowed for significant changes in the equine industry and Linda and Pat Parelli remain dedicated to improving the lives of horses and creating opportunities for the people who love them. In the future, Parelli is focused on developing youth programs, horse rescue initiatives, scholarships for talented and underprivileged students, and para-equestrian pursuits and Paralympic contenders.
By using love, language and leadership, Parelli is on a mission to help create a better world for horses and humans, working to inspire, empower and educate through natural horsemanship.
