All those things will take time and love, language, and leadership in equal doses.
Parelli now offers a "Get Started" DVD...and even if you don't think Parell is for you, it's like $20, has ALOT of information, and Pat works with a horse that has never done Parelli before. It's quite fun to watch and you will definitely learn something new.
Also if you check on different clinician websites you can see a schedule of when and were they are going to be giving clinics. Even just auditing a clinic is a great way to start :)
