I have been a horse lover from the first moment I knew what horses were! I grew up in suburbia, not understanding why my parents couldn’t fit a horse in our backyard. When I got my first job at age 16, before even buying a car, I bought a horse. I was so certain that I would know what to do with my horse (an unbroken range mare) because I had spent my childhood reading horse stories. All I needed to do was show it love, right?
There is “something special” about the dedication and passion within the Parelli Community. There are so many ways individuals within the community are supporting the program and mission “helping create a better world for horses and humans;” and I am blessed to have built such deep connections within the community at large.
