Parelli Horse & Soul Tour
Surprises in store for April stop in Rancho Murieta.

It's 8:00 on a crisp, cool Saturday morning. You and a few of your closest friends are just pulling into the arena parking lot when you see – and hear – the laughing, dancing, screaming crowd outside. They're snapping pictures on their phones, sipping hot coffee out of their thermoses, and they're all wondering the same thing you are:
"What are we going to see?"

No two shows are the same. If you come to the Murieta Equine Complex in Rancho Murieta on April 27-28, you'll have the chance to see first- hand the excitement of the 2013 Parelli Horse & Soul Tour.

This tour is all about expecting the unexpected. Like your favorite band changing up their set list at each show, the Horse & Soul Tour features something different at each stop. You've heard that some local Parelli professionals will be doing spotlights at the shows. Who will it be? You've heard that Pat and Linda might have a special guest appearing, and you're ready to find out.

Every Horse & Soul Tour stop, of course, features incredible educational demonstrations from Pat and Linda Parelli. Pat's horse makeover marathons are as exciting as ever, as local horses and their owners experience the Parelli program for the first time in their lives, and you get a front row seat to their development. Pat's trailer loading sessions are legendary, and when you see it for yourself, you understand why. Every horse is different, every session is unique, but they're always electrifying.

Linda Parelli has spent the last five years immersing herself in the world of dressage, discovering ways of applying natural horsemanship principles to the world outside of Parelli. Don't worry – you don't need to own a pair of jodhpurs to identify with what Linda is teaching. You just need a love of horses and a desire for never-ending self-improvement. Linda shares her revolutionary work in horse psychology, as well as sharing the secret to achieving contact in her Game of Contact sessions. Also, in keeping with the spirit of the 2013 Horse & Soul Tour, you just might get to see Linda team up with Colleen Kelly for some Rider Biomechanics – you'll just have to come to the show and find out.

Additionally, on Sunday afternoon you'll get the chance to win $1,300 in prizes in "The Whole Enchilada" Giveaway. One lucky attendee will receive a Complete Levels Kit, Colt Starting DVD, Game of Contact DVD, Hit the Trail DVD and a Green Ball!

The 2013 Horse & Soul Tour is Parelli as you've never seen it before. Featuring Pat, Linda, and a diverse range of young, talented horsemen and women, this tour is sure to inspire, entertain and educate. We promise you'll never see another show like it – after all, no two shows are alike!

The Parelli method combines in-depth equine psychology and common sense communication techniques in a proven recipe for horse and rider success. It allows horse owners at all levels of experience (from trail rider to Olympic-level dressage rider) to achieve success without force, partnership without dominance, and harmony without coercion. The wider goal is to help create a better world for horses and the people who love them.
