Have Fun Learning
Create Your Best Horse Relationship
We strive for the best relationship with our horses through Love, Language and Leadership. Most of our education is from the the teachings of Pat Parelli. Many of the riders in Alberta are lucky enough to be students of Don Halladay, top Parelli instructor in Canada. If you are new to Parelli Natural Horsemanship we encourage everyone to come out and view the many clinics and events in our area.
It doesn't matter if you study under another instructor or program, if you call yourself a Natural Rider, then please join us on our journey of knowledge and fun.

You can not change your horse, you can only change yourself. When you are focused with feel and timing that has balanced amounts of leadership and partnership, your horse will join with you, in harmony.
I am a Parelli instructor because I couldn't keep myself from wanting to share this program that I love so much.
Although I have been riding since I was a child, I did not grow up on a farm; I did not get the chance to own a horse until I was in my late 30's. I bought my Levels horse Sugar accidentally at an auction when she was 4 months old. It didn't take long before I found myself lost; trying to find information I could trust to help me with my new purchase. Although, I had been riding other people's horses for years in the English world it was obvious to me that I knew nothing about developing a horse.
Thank goodness Pat and Linda Parelli came to Calgary and I found the program that was right for me!
I have been studying the Parelli program since 2003 under 5 Star Master Instructor Don Halladay, and I host his clinics in the Edmonton area. My horse Sugar and I have journeyed through the program together and have earned our Level 4 Horsemanship. I am advancing through the program again with my young horse Tyson.
I look forward to helping any student who wants to check out or advance their skills in the Parelli Program.
