Another opportunity!

Last year Arie and I participated in the Parelli Celebration and received a mini lesson from Pat What he taught me excelled my horsemanship where it was lacking.

This year I have the opportunity to receive a full lesson (at least an hour long) with Linda or Pat, whichever I choose, at one of the Parelli Tours! I've chosen to try for a lesson with Linda....I learned a lot from Pat, however I seem to learn easier from Linda's instruction overall. There are only 2 spots open at each tour venue, one for Pat and one for Linda. I'll have to submit video of the issue(s) I would like to focus on and as of right now I have one issue on the ground and one issue under saddle. I especially want to ride Arie seeing as I love love love Linda's riding instruction and I think she could really help us excel.

Wish me luck! I think I have a pretty good chance at getting least as good as everyone else's chances. The Tour I'll be going to is the Columbus, Ohio one (they aren't coming to Missouri this year). I sure hope I get picked!!!

Spirithorse, I know how much this would mean to you, so I've got my fingers and toes crossed for you and Arie! Good luck to you!

BTW, I'm assuming you'll be trailering Arie there yourself, hat's off to you. I've never trailered that far myself, so , Wow! I usually stay within a 2 hour drive. Again, good luck to you.

Thanks guys :) It would be a dream come true for me! Last year was amazing, I still can't believe it happened. Regardless if I get picked or not I'll be attending that Tour location. I'm so excited!

Oh that is so exciting! I have been thinking about going to the Ohio tour stop as they arent coming to PA this year either but it so far for me to go by myself. I would probably get lost...if I can convince my hubby or perhaps another horsey friend to come with me I would love to be able to meet you in person and Arie in person ! : ) I hope you get the spot!

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.
