Our goal whether you trail ride, ride recreationally, or compete at a state or national level, is to help you create a willing, confident partner through mutual trust and respect.”
— John Parks

John and Cat Parks travel across the United States teaching more effective, lighter horsemanship by improving rider understanding. They have helped hundreds of riders - from complete beginners to successful professionals - improve their efficacy by placing a strong focus on improving equitation skills, understanding why things work, and inviting consideration of the horse's perspective.

While clinic material varies based on individual experience of horse and rider, each clinic emphasizes communication with the horse without force or fear to establish a willing partnership.  Class size is limited to 10 riders to maximize personal attention.
