Instructors Help Change the World!
A few years after meeting Pat Parelli, Linda cautioned him about burn out. With our mission being to change the world, there is no way we could do that single handedly. Having trained teachers before, Linda proposed an instructor program and together they began training specialized Parelli Professionals in 1993. Today there are over 200 worldwide.
Parelli students look for Parelli Instructors they can trust, who they know are close to Pat and Linda and are passing on the purest information from the Parelli Program.
Not only are Parelli Professionals good with horses, they are great with people. Learning is not easy, and we believe it is really important to inspire confidence in the student. When you feel supported and encouraged, you learn more easily and stay motivated.
Most students take lessons, workshops and clinics to support and accelerate what they learn in the Parelli Levels Program curriculum as a member of the Savvy Club.
There are two ratings for Parelli Professionals, Instructors and Horse Development Specialists, that you can select according to your needs.
You will notice varying numbers of stars next to an instructor’s name. This rating indicates the level of expertise and experience as an instructor, and the level to which they are certified to teach in each of the Four Savvy’s (Level 1,2,3,4). It also indicates the scope of their license, from lessons to workshops to clinics.
Finesse Specialists have studied directly with Linda Parelli and achieved a special certification for teaching her concepts on riding position, contact, and the Precision Box.
All Parelli Professionals meet professional requirements set by Pat Parelli and his team, attend professional conferences and are required to take Continued Education (CE). Above all, they maintain the spirit of Parelli and are committed, as a team, to help us on our mission to make the world a better place for horses and the people who love them.
Many of Parelli's top students have ambitions and dreams to become a Parelli Professional. Find out more about the Parelli Professional education and certification program. Parelli Certification Program
