PAT PARELLI NATURAL HORSMANSHIP
It was in 1980 that, looking for learning about dressage and horses,I began to travel around Europe trying to find the techniques and knowledge that I missed.
During the last 25 years I have been improuving myself because of so much learning experiences with the best riders and trainersof the world.
I have been lucky enough to ride with such a good dressage trainers as Herbert Rehbein, Reiner klimke, Sjeff Jansen, Patrick Le Rolland, David Hunt, George Wahl,
Arthur Kottas, Hans Riegler, Jurgen Koschel and, since 1996, Jean Bemelmans.
I have been enjoying the "savoir faire" of "Cadre Noir" riders of Saumur, on command of Christian Carde, the talent of Arthur Kottas and
Hans Riegler of the Viena Spanish Riding School, the extraordinary hability in collecting exercices on hand of my friends Manuel Ruiz,
Ignacio Rambla and Rafael Soto from the Royal School of Jerez and the "Knowhow" of our Master in High School my friend Alvaro Domecq.
"pie a tierra" de Manuel Ruiz, Ignacio Rambla o Rafael Soto , o del sentido del tempo de Alvaro Domecq ,
All those are magic moments difficult to forget.
My friendship relationship since 1985 with Anky van Grunsvenor with my good friend and neighbour Beatriz Ferrer Salat ,
gave me also nice and rich rapports that give an extra value and interest to this long list of learning possibilities.
After all that, 40 years of professional experiences as a rider and trainer and having achieved the preparation of 11 European
Juner and Young riders Championships as a trianer and 2 Olimpics, Atlanta and Sidney, as a rider, I have realised that in the training and
developing the diferent skills of our dressage horses and riders , we need seriously to improve in mental and emotional knowledge of the horse.
Pat y Linda Parelli came into my life end 2002 trough my friend Cecile Glamour in Barcelona.
From the first moment, they gave me their friendship but not only that, they also shared with me their enourmus amount of experiences
and knowledge about all those areas that I needed, those that were, still after so long time, without the right answer.
Discover the mental and emotional control of our horses and improve our leadership using the right lenguage coming from the natural behaviour
of the horses, are the keys of this extraordinary method that Linda and Pat offered me.
From here I invite to all riders and horse lovers , what ever discipline they are in, specially those from the Dressage world that I know deeper,
to know and practise the Linda and Pat Parelli Program, achieving a new level of relationship with the horses, never imagined before.
