Master Horseman Pat Parelli To Visit Shelbyville

    Internationally acclaimed horseman Pat Parelli will be offering his
philosophy and advice on horse training in a two-day seminar at Calsonic
Arena Oct. 29-30, as part of his 2005 tour.
    During the two-day seminar, attendees will witness the extraordinary
relationships that  can be formed between horses and  humans and the
transformations that can result.
    "This is truly and empowering, meaningful, and distinctive seminar, even
for those who do not own horses. Anyone attending a Parelli seminar will see
the dynamic  relationship between Pat, his students and their horses, and
will most certainly discover their own potential to change their
relationships with their horse, and in their lives," said Laura Morris,
advertising and promotions representative.
    Tickets for the seminar are available at and cost $65 in
advance. Groups of 10 or more may receive and advance price of $35, and
groups such as 4-H, FFA and Mounted Police members are eligible for free
admission. Tickets are $100 at the door. Any questions may be directed to
Laura Morris at 970-731-9465 or
    The first day of the seminar, which will also be held in Tunica on Nov.
5-6, will begin with student demonstrations. The morning session will show
the "Possibility of Change," demonstrated by two horses with typical and
unusual problems. In the afternoon session, participants will learn the
"Secrets of Success" -- how to develop horses and how to develop people.
Finally, the first day will conclude with participants gaining insight by
watching Parelli and his wife, Linda, train their own horses and demo
    Day two will begin with student playtime, and fun with horses. The
morning session will then cover the latest developments in the philosophy of
natural horsemanship and understanding relationships with horses at a much
deeper level. The afternoon will continue with breakthrough concepts in
riding and learning how to become one with the horse, beyond arena drills
and aimless riding sessions.
