If you are seeking hands-on, in-person help from natural horse trainers in your area, you’ll be happy to know that there are Parelli instructors available throughout the world offering natural horsemanship training in a number of different formats. Educational formats include coaching, private lessons, group lessons, half-day or full-day clinics, workshops focusing on a particular skill (or “savvy”) and multi-day camps. As an introductory experience, some Parelli trained instructors allow students (only the human, not the horse) to observe or “audit” a lesson. Availability for audits depends on the individual instructors, their auditing policies and their Parelli rating level.
Please note: Although the horse trainers listed on this page are trained and certified in Parelli natural horsemanship skills and methods, they are independent contractors and set their own formats, pricing and schedules. We list them here as a service to you and to them, but we do not regulate or receive any portion of their fees.

Horse Development is all about Parelli Principle #7 – “Humans teach horses, and horses teach humans.” As you progress through the Parelli Levels Pathway to Level 4, your horse is really teaching you! How do prey animals think, how can you act like a partner, how to handle your tools, and the list goes on. Horse Development is where the human starts to teach the horse. The horse may be a foal, a colt getting his first rides, a particularly difficult or challenging horse, or moving towards an area of specialization.
