Services and training options


Jackie offers a range of learning experiences and tools to help you make progress on your Parelli Natural horsemanship journey.  You can attend with or without a horse, and in both cases you will take away more information and inspiration to continue your education at home with your horse.   Email Jackie for a current price list of services or if you have any questions about the best option for your needs and how to get the best value.    

Private lessons
Private lessons are usually aimed at students who need more one on one tuition to help them through particular challenges or to learn something more specialised.  They are a minimum of one hour and a maximum of two hours. If you would like to have a shared lesson with a friend this is also an option.   Jackie will travel to you (within the Canterbury region) or you can come to her facility in Broadfields, Christchurch.  Go to The Chant Ranch for location and directions.  
Ask about our 'Progressive lesson package discount deal' - it is a great gift idea!   

Focus Groups
Focus groups are a progressive group lesson package, with 4-6 students for 4x 3hour sessions plus a  horseless goal setting session.  This is an opportunity for students to get together in an area on a monthly basis to stay focussed and keep motivated and make rapid progress on your Parelli pathway with guidance from Jackie on goal setting, play session planning and problem solving.  If you would like to arrange & host a Focus group in your area please contact Jackie

A workshop is 1 full day focussing on a Savvy or specific topic in the levels program.  It could be an Introduction to Parelli, Online, Freestyle riding, Liberty or Finesse or even building confidence or fluidity.  You can request a workshop in your area with an existing group or we can organise them with local coordinators.  Workshops are available for 6-10 students allowing time for you to participate in simulations, experiment with new concepts and focus on specific skill building and problem solving.

Horseless workshops & Educational demonstrations
Horseless workshops are a fantastic way to keep motivated and focus on the detail of a specific topic such as Reading horse behaviour, Fluidity and rider posture or even rope handling skills.  They include Demonstrations either with a horse or on DVD, simulations and theory sessions with attention to detail and question and answer sessions.  They are fun and social and perfect in the winter months. 
We hold a winter series of horseless workshops as well as summer educational
demonstrations.  These are open to any level student.

2-3 day Clinics
Clinics are held over 2-3 days and are level specific within the Parelli Program.  Simulations help us to see life from the horses point of view while gaining skills.
They give you the added advantage of attention to detail while building your imagination using the 7 games both on the ground and riding (depending on level of clinic).  There is time for theory, simulations and trouble shooting with each day building on the day before. You will be amazed at how much this will speed up your progress and set you up for success!

5 day Courses & Camps
Allow yourself to be immursed for 5 full days of education, inspiration, focus and support with no distractions, just you and your horse and like minded people.  5 day courses give us the opportunity to cover all 4 savvy's in the Parelli Program.  This is the ultimate experience in learning with the opportunity to develop more depth of understanding.  With theory, group simulations (to experience life from the horses perspective), demonstrations and practical hands on help with your horse you are really owning your own learning!  You have the opportunity and time to install new habits, patterns and advance your horsemanship to new heights!

Why attend a Clinic?

Whether a two day clinic or up to a five day course, having an opportunity to immerse yourself surrounded by like minded people, nothing else to think about but you and your horse while guided by an experienced Senior Instructor with 15 years experience in the Parelli program is the ultimate way to make progress and stay on track.  The feedback we get from students who have pushed themselves out of their comfort zone and attended a clinic to advance their horsemanship is always the same - they can't believe how much they've learnt in such a short space of time.  Fast tracking them through the program and setting them up for months of progress with what they have learnt.
Since being a student in the Parelli program and now having the privilege to teach it, Jackie can not emphasise enough the power and depth of learning while in the clinic environment.  Pat Parelli says, "I can't experience, experience for you, but I can share my experiences with you, and second hand gold is as good as new".  During a clinic, Jackie is able to share her experiences with you to expand your knowledge to set you up for success! 

What is an 'Auditor'?

Attending a clinic as an auditor means that you do not bring your horse.  However you are not just a spectator, you are involved in simulations and theory sessions, can ask questions and have the added benefit of observing everyone who is there with their horse.  You will be expected to bring your own chair and a note book if you like taking notes and to attend the full days teaching.  If you can not get your horse to a clinic or workshop, this is the next best way to get involved and learn the valuable lessons and attention to detail that are only learnt at clinics as well as meeting like minded people! 

What does it cost?

Course costs are listed with the courses and will vary with the duration and location of the
course.  Please contact Jackie for any above pricing details.

Gift certificates are available!

Hi Jackie, 
With focus group coming up for the summer season, I have started to form my personal goals based on where I am with Pops, and where we are heading to... and oh boy it is starting to get exciting! This got me thinking - Pops and I, are where we are in our partnership, I am sure, in part, because of our (and your) commitment to participating in Focus Groups EVERY season for the last 7 years! I am completely sold on the advantages of a Focus Group, and as a teacher myself, I KNOW it is the absolute best way to learn, no matter your age, stage, or ability. The main benefits for me (and any learner) are... 

  • There is someone looking over your process/habitual behaviours every month! You are wonderful at suggesting and correcting!
  • As a learner you see others with their horses, with the range of  horsenalities and get to see how things are set up for success - not matter what!
  • I personally LOVE mixed ability learning, as it allows for seeing where you are heading, and reminding others of how far they have come! Also, we are fortunate to revisit foundational concepts regularly.
  • For me personally, the biggest benefit has been part of a herd of horses, and dealing with the emotions that inevitably come up and then noticing the growth from this. Of course from here is the personal emotional fitness development!
  • The monthly lessons of course mean there is regular checking in with our goals – reflection and building on the successes. 
  • Watching YOU play with multiple horses – I never turn down this opportunity, as it is always so educational!
  • I love having you only a text, email or even a phone call away to celebrate the successes in between visits (and to help me trouble shoot when I am stuck) - I think this is so valuable for a learner in a tricky situation, and I am grateful and acknowledge how much it requires from you to do this. 
  • My absolute favourite - celebrating as a group EVERYONES successes – nothing better! 

As I often say Jackie, you are an absolute expert at catering to ALL needs no matter what level. You break the concepts down into ALL 4 savvies to help EVERYONE experience success, no matter what level we are at. I am so excited to continue this format again at our North Canterbury Focus Group and can't wait to see what we can achieve!  Kristie Morrison
