My love for horses and trail riding and having the perfect horse was enough until I came to the reality that Missy was getting older and having heart problems (at 24). I purchased my second horse, a 6 yr. old Arabian Gelding named Sweed and he challenged me to find a better way! I found Pat Parelli in 1997 and my Parelli journey began. My first two Level 1 clinics were with Pat Parelli and these two clinics changed me and my relationship with Sweed forever. Sweed was my greatest teacher (he was 22 when I lost him) and I will never forget him!
I have studied with Pat and Linda Parelli, Carol Coppinger- 6 Star Master Instructor and Neil Pye-Instructor Emeritus through the years.
With the help of my husband we hosted Carol Coppinger in Cincinnati, Ohio
for 8 years. I have attended many clinics, Super Camps, Retreats and a 10 week course at the ISC in Florida. I am a Level 4 Graduate in all 4 Savvy’s and I have become a 2 Star Instructor for Parelli Natural Horse-Man-Ship. I am very proud to be helping Pat and Linda change the world for horses and humans.
As a 2 Star Instructor I can teach Level’s 1, 2, 3 and 4 in three Savvy’s (Online, Liberty and Freestyle Riding). I offer Workshops, Private lessons and Group lessons and it would be my pleasure to help you get started on your Parelli journey.
My Parelli Promise to you: Relationship First, Foundation Before
Specialization and Never-Ending Self Improvement

Savvy & Carol
At the age of 15 I purchased my first horse (Missy 7 yr. old Q.H.) and she was truly the perfect first horse. I then started to help manage a small private boarding facility and learn what it took to take care of horses. At 18 I became the manager for a larger private facility where I trained and exercised Standardbred Horses. I met my husband (Bert) soon after and Missy and I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio.
