The weekend of September 17 and 18th I attended the Master Class with Pat Parelli at the Markham fairgrounds. What a great weekend! We watched Pat coaching 7 riders at different stages of their horsemanship journeys and learned so much from watching! Pat stresses that the connection between the horse and human is the most important part.
It is hard to say what was my favorite moment or what I took away from that weekend, there was so much.I loved watching the people "get it" when their horsemanship improved and their horses offered them things that they had been trying to get. Frustrations turned into smiles and happy faces with a few moments coaching. Pat has a way of explaining and getting exactly right what people are looking for and lacking in their relationship with their horses. A big thank you to Pat for making this possible and to Todd and Maureen Owens, Parelli Professionals for putting this all together.
