Parelli Natural Horsemanship Celebrates 40 Years with the Event of the Decade at WEC Ocala
by Parelli Natural Horsemanship on Dec 29, 2021
Parelli Natural Horsemanship is celebrating 40 years of teaching the Parelli Method with a live, three-day event at the new state-of-the-art World Equestrian Center in Ocala, FL on March 4 – 6, 2022.
Most lifelong horse enthusiasts cannot remember a time when Natural Horsemanship didn’t exist. The simple systems of equine partnership helped shape the way that equestrians approach their relationship with their horse in every riding discipline imaginable. This year marks 40 years since the father of Natural Horsemanship, Pat Parelli, gave his very first clinic.
The Parelli Method has since reached 76 countries, over a million people, countless horses, and is now accessible to every horse owner at every budget through online membership all the way up to in-person courses.
Year after year, more horse owners discover the simple magic of the human-equine partnership. And after 40 years of playing the Seven Games and moving up the Levels, the same principles of love, language and leadership are still helping equestrians live the horse life of their dreams.
An Event Like No Other: You’re Invited!
In celebration of 40 years of Parelli Natural Horsemanship and the decades to come, we’re bringing you three days of education, entertainment, and inspiration—diving deep into how to make the most of the human-equine partnership.
Horsemanship Simplified: Celebrating 40 Years of Natural Horsemanship will take place March 4 – 6 at the new, state-of-the-art World Equestrian Center in Ocala, Florida: the horse capital of the world.
What to Expect: 3 Days of Horse•Man•Ship Simplified
- Friday: The first day will be centered around the Horse. What makes them tick? How does your horse perceive you as his partner? How can the Parelli Program help you? Watch Pat Parelli LIVE as he teaches you the art and science of Applied Horse Psychology to build the best partnership possible.
- Saturday: Day two will focus on Man. What does it take to be your horse’s leader? How do you stay in the leadership mindset even when learning is hard? Parelli has empowered millions of horse lovers around the globe, and you'll walk back to your barn with the skills to become a better partner for your horse.
- Sunday: Finally, on day three we’ll focus on the Journey: how we, as two separate species, can come together and form a unique relationship built on trust and connection. The process doesn't look like the product. Horse training isn't one size fits all. Learn how to use the Parelli Levels Pathway, no matter your experience or background with horses.
