Taming and starting horses is the foundation of horsemanship as a whole. As Pat says, make the first ride as if heâ€™s been ridden a thousand times... and ride your horse for the thousandth time as though it was his first.

Now, for the first time, Patâ€™s renowned step-by-step young horse development program is available for at-home study and self-development support for any serious horseman. This isnâ€™t colt breaking. This is colt starting â€“ the Parelli way.
