Taming and starting horses is the foundation of horsemanship as a whole. As Pat says, make the first ride as if he’s been ridden a thousand times... and ride your horse for the thousandth time as though it was his first. Getting the smallest details right is critical to becoming a horseman. Taming and starting colts shows you where you fall short quicker than perhaps any other stage you go through with your horse. Now, for the first time, Pat’s renowned step-by-step young horse development program is available for at-home study and self-development support for any serious horseman. This isn’t colt breaking. This is colt starting – the Parelli way.
Join Pat and Linda as they take you on a trail ride through the stunning Colorado wilderness. You’ll learn directly from Pat and Linda all that you need to know before you set out on the trail, then how to put your newfound skills to use on the spot when you need them most. Covers trailering, trail etiquette, natural obstacles, essential groundwork, in saddle preparation, water crossings, jigging, spooky situations, gear selection, and more.

Bridleless riding is one of the clearest illustrations of the connection between a horse and rider – not to mention simply being a truly beautiful example of true horsemanship. But as you can imagine, there’s far more to it than removing the bridle and riding off into the sunset. It takes dedication, a solid plan, and an understanding of horse psychology. The hows and the whys of bridleless riding are just as important as the whats!
With Bridleless Riding, Pat Parelli will take you through the four key components of bridleless riding: the philosophy, the concept, the theory, and finally, the technique. Over the course of this DVD, Pat guides a student, Joseph, through a series of exercises and patterns that prepare both Joseph and his horse for consistent, safe bridleless riding moving forward.

When hundreds of horse lovers gathered together at the Parelli campus in September 2013 for the annual Parelli Summit, they had no idea they were about to witness the formative moments of a truly breathtaking transformation. Grace, a beautiful but nearly feral mare from Oregon, was brought to Colorado to participate in Pat Parelli’s Problem Horse Makeover sessions. What occurred in those sessions was not just educational; it was life-changing – not just for Grace, but for everyone in attendance.
This 16-episode series offers a spectator’s-eye-view of Grace’s incredible transformation at the 2013 Parelli Summit. From beginning to end, you’ll see the true power of the Parelli Program in action.
Clipping is one of those often-overlooked horsemanship skills that requires a lot more savvy than you’d initially think. After all, it’s just a little clipper, right? What’s the problem?
Well, plenty of horses don’t like being clipped, so Pat Parelli put together this DVD to demonstrate a variety of strategies to overcome your horse’s resistance to clipping. In order to properly and safely clip your horse, you need to make sure you’re prepared and your horse is confident. That’s where Clipping with Pat Parelli comes in.
Originally released in 2003, this DVD features Pat illustrating everything you need to know about clipping. To paraphrase Pat, “prior and proper preparation” is key to clipping. That’s why Pat takes you through the entire process – from clipping savvy, through horse preparation, all the way to the bonus chapter, “The Seven Games & Clipping.”
With Pat’s help, clipping will no longer be the occasionally frustrating endeavor it’s been up until now. With Clipping with Pat Parelli, you’ll be clipping with confidence.

Applying Psychology to Precision Riding
Riding with finesse, contact, and precision can be very difficult for both horses and riders.
If you have trouble…
Keeping your hands and legs quiet
Maintaining the ‘correct’ position
Shaping your horse
And your horse…
Cannot find comfort
Gets mad or frustrated by corrections
Is tense or has a negative expression…
The Precision Box is your answer!
We’re excited to bring you another major breakthrough from Linda Parelli that makes beautiful riding achievable.
You’ll see Linda riding her horse, Hot Jazz, to explain how it all works; Two riders learning it for the first time with their horses (RBE and LBI!); and, finally, how The Precision Box applies to jumping! Linda is the master of simulations to build your confidence and skills to take the stress out of Finesse.
Now you will know how to apply psychology and the principles of a true partnership to riding with finesse, contact and precision, from basic to the most advanced levels.
Are you frustrated with your lazy, crazy, naughty, or unpredictable horse? Most horses have behavior problems because of fear, dominance, or confusion.
Once you know where your horse is coming from, you’ll have the keys to change unwanted behavior forever. In this long-awaited DVD set on the revolutionary concept of Horsenality, Linda Parelli takes you on a fantastic horsemanship journey, showing you how to read horses and discover the keys to bringing out the best in them. There are four main Horsenality types to learn about; from there, you’ll determine “cusps” and “spirit level,” in order to get a complete picture.
Linda shows you each Horsenality at Liberty in the round corral, pointing out the key characteristics and demonstrating how to use the right energy and strategies, according to the unique horse’s needs. Finally, you’ll see students with each Horsenality being coached by Linda, both on the ground and in the saddle. Never have a bad horse day again!

Driving can be one of the most engaging, enjoyable, yet challenging activities you and your horse can do together. Nate Bowers of Bowers Natural Driving has teamed up with Pat Parelli to share the history, strategy, and savvy you'll need to become adept and safe during your driving excursions.
This 2-DVD set will take you, step-by-step, through the process of setting up a natural foundation with your driving horse.
Just as Pat has a four-part Colt Starting ladder (1. Accept the human, 2. Accept the saddle, 3. Accept the rider, 4. Accept the bit), Nate has applied a similar process to driving. With these ingredients in place, along with an awareness of what to do when the unexpected occurs, driving will become a thoroughly enjoyable experience for both you and your horse!

That's what Driving, Part 2: Harness, Hitch and Drive is all about.
In Parts 1 and 2 of this series, Nate Bowers guided you through the steps you need to take to ensure that you're safe, knowledgeable and skilled, as you get ready for driving. Now, in Part 3, is where you transition from preparation to application: training the driving horse!
