Carol entered into Parelli Natural Horse-Man-Ship from a position as a full- time Computer Systems Analyst with 20 years experience prior to her current status as a 6 Star Master Instructor, licensed to instruct since 1997. As an adjunct to her then full - time career, she competed in both English and Western disciplines, including saddle seat, barrels and poles, jumping, trail obstacle and obstacle driving. She garnered several World Championships to satisfy her goals, primarily in gaited horses, extending her training abilities to trotting horses. She excelled in young "show prospect rejects" producing world-class competitors and well-schooled trail/pleasure horses. Training to high levels, yet finding owners unwilling to make the same commitment to excellence, proved frustrating. She mounted an extensive search for a system that approached both the horse and the human. In late 1994, Carol discovered Parelli Natural Horse-Man-Ship; a system allowing all owners to develop meaningful relationships with horses, achieving any level of horsemanship they could imagine. Throughout that time, Carol studied with Pat & Linda at the ISC, attending all instructor courses/ conferences and numerous colt starting/ difficult horse and Levels courses offered. She participated as part of the Savvy Team for the Eastern, Southern, and Midwestern Success With Horses Tour and has demonstrated with Pat and Linda at Equine Affaires, Equitanas and Savvy Conferences. Currently, she teaches Levels 1, 2 ,3 & 4 clinics, camps and workshops throughout the US from Florida to Maine and West to Alaska, as well as instructing at both the Colorado and Ocala International Study Centers.  Carol returns multiple times during the year to spend time with Linda and Pat and can be found at the Florida Center in the early months each year.   It is the desire of Pat & Linda to "Raise the level of Horse-man-ship worldwide" and without question Parelli is the Ultimate way to learn to Train your Horse!.
