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.
