I was fortunate enough to learn about Pat and the program he founded at a very young age! Within weeks of obtaining my first horse (age 10) I was exposed to the WOW the Parelli Program has to offer through a exhibition at the Sacramento Horse Expo.
Watching Pat Parelli, Linda Parelli, David Lichman & Honza Blaha performing the spectacular things they could do WITH there horses was so inspiring and moved my Dad and I to jump head first in their home study program.
Who knew that nine years later I would have the opportunity to go to Pat Parelli’s campus in Colorado and begin my journey as one of his instructors!
During my first stint on campus I spent approximately 12 month moving up the ranks from my introductory course (then called the “fast track) to being part of Pat’s Mastery Program as an Apprentice. My time working directly with him at his barn was cut short due to an unexpected health issue. Although this was a very frustrating road block at the time, I realize now that God was setting me up for an even greater pathway in the years to come.
Words could never express how grateful I am for this man and the program that he create; allowing me a dream career come true.
