Two Hearts Natural Horsemanship

Where Communication, Love & Obedience come together

What is  Parelli Natural Horsemanship & Natural Horsemanship?

What is Natural Horsemanship? Plainly said Natural Horsemanship is the philosophy of working with horses by appealing to their instincts and herd mentality rather than using force, fear or pain to break a horse's spirit.

What is Parelli Natural Horsemanship? The Parelli method allows horse lovers at all levels and disciplines to achieve: success without force, partnership without dominance, teamwork without fear, willingness without intimidation, and harmony without coercion.

Founded in 1981 by lifelong horseman and teacher Pat Parelli, the Parelli Program combines common sense psychology and communication. Unlike many training programs, the Parelli method teaches the human, not the horse. Early on, Pat realized that horses already had all the skills they needed to thrive and relate with their kind. It was adding the human element that complicated things.

Horse owners who follow the Parelli program have found the greatest gift is discovering that Parelli enhances not only their relationship and communication with the horse, but touches every other relationship in their lives.

"It's more than just about the horse," reflects Linda. "It really dips into the personal development side of things. You learn about yourself, you learn about communication, about leadership, about truthfulness, about consequence and responsibility. You learn about love and imagination. The horse becomes the animal that tells you the truth about yourself in all these categories."

"People realize this is what they've been looking for in all their relationships," adds Pat. "It's balanced with love, language and leadership in equal doses. The program and their horse give them a living model so they can practice and become fluent in their abilities in all relationships, not just the horse relationships."
