Horsemanship Clinics and Workshops
Clinics are available for groups up to 10 riders. They are often organized by students of the program who wish to gather up a group to advance, learn and to enjoy an intensive shot of savvy together! Clinics (2 to 4 days) can take various formats, usually targeting one level of the pathway, depending on the group. Level 1 clinics consist of ground work only. Gallery students are welcome at clinics.

VIPP (Very Important Parelli Private) clinics are for small groups (1 to 3 students) who wish to make a private booking for a specifically tailored clinic lasting 3 days or more, where they will partake in an intense, focused and personalized learning experience. Participants in VIP clinics will also benefit from free level assessments and a follow-up service by email and by phone.
Workshops (with horses) are for Parelli students who are going through the program but need specific help or feel stuck. They focus on one savvy in one level, a pattern, or else, a specific skill (trailer loading, preparing for the vet, preparing for a safe ride, 7 games with an obstacle, lead changes, the circling game, Parelli tournament, etc.) Workshops allow you to advance your savvy and your knowledge in good company during an informal and fun half-day or day.
Groups are 6 to 10 students. Workshops may be held on a regular basis at equestrian facilities that choose to host them. They can also be set-up to learn and practice specific horsemanship skills such as horse care, ground work, first aid, equipment or any other topic. Gallery students may or may not be not permitted with host and student permission, for example if they wish to preserve a more intimate setting for the workshop. Please contact us if you would like to host a set of workshops at your facility.
We strongly encourage you to become a Parelli Member so you can have access to continuous support from Parelli and other students as well as a comprehensive knowledge base available online. You will also greatly accelerate your learning if you take time to get acquainted with the educational material available from Parelli (DVDs and books). A list of equipment appropriate for each level is available in the Tools section of this site.
