Love, Language and Leadership Since 1982
In 1982 Pat Parelli began creating a natural horsemanship program to improve the relationship between humans and horses. Pat promoted the concept of love, language and leadership. Pat’s desire to spread this knowledge to the world rose up in him after watching his mentors Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt work with horses.
In 1984 Pat began teaching clinics, and in 1990, Linda joined him with the mission of popularizing this special way of interacting with horses. In 1991, they coined the name Natural Horsemanship, Linda moved from Australia to the USA and the rest, as they say, is history. Natural Horsemanship has become a viable and important aspect of the international horse industry and continues to expand and influence the way in which horses are trained. Pat and Linda provide an amazing talent for both training horses and teaching people. Today, Parelli Natural Horsemanship and the program has spread to 76 countries, over a million people, and has improved the lives of horses around the world.
