We are pleased to announce that once again we are hosting a Saddle Fitting Clinic with Tina Giordano, 3-Star Parelli Professional, May 21st-22nd.  Tina will be teaching in-depth about reading your horse’s body, saddle fit, biomechanics & horse posture.  Along with Tina will be Art & Letitia Glenn of Durango, CO, who have been instrumental in the research, design & manufacturing of Parelli Saddles.  Riders will have the opportunity to test ride in the various styles of Parelli Saddles, plus riders & auditors alike will learn how to protect your horse’s back when ridden no matter what type of saddle you own.  Go to our website under the Events page for the flyer or email for more details .

Several wonderful partnerships have occurred as of our last posting!

AR One Especial Time

Carol & Linda Arledge of Winters, TX purchased AR One Especial Time, aka Blue. Blue had been through our preschool program then had gone on to David & Jody Ellises ranch to be started under saddle. Carol & Linda love to ride and work on their family’s 5th generation ranch.

AR Ill Be Powderific

Regina Preciado of Grass Valley, CA has a network of fellow Parelli students who all share in the fun and joy of horses in their lives. Regina already has a blog, scrapbook and videos of her journey with her new partner, AR Ill Be Powderific — known as Pebbles here at the ranch but River is her new name.

AR Scootin Sassy

AR Scootin Sassy has the perfect new partner in Catie Casentini of Wilton, CA. Sassy went on after preschool to be started under saddle by Maurice Thibault, then on to Cezanne DeCristoforo who had the perfect student for her. Catie loves to trail ride with her family and appreciates Sassy’s calm demeanor.

AR Powder River Smoker

Randy & Cindy Harris, Tara & Trevor Carter’s parents, recently purchased four Atwood Ranch broodmares to expand their herd. All four are in foal so Spring will bring some beautiful new Atwood bred foals to their pastures!

AR London Skyline

Parelli Professionals Peter Fuller & Chris Cook recently partnered on a 2010 gelding named AR London Skyline, a Mr Skyline Peppy offspring. Their plan is after his completion of our preschool program, they’ll start him as a two-year-old with the hope of developing a reined cowhorse prospect for the future.
