As the most dedicated student of the system that bears her husband’s name, Linda Parelli is celebrated for her intuitive coaching which she delivers with wit, compassion and kindness.
She is especially well-known for her work on horse psychology and her development of the concept of Horsenality™, or horse personality. Along with licensed psychologist Dr. Patrick Handley, she has developed a horse/human personality matching system, the Horsenality™/Humanality™ Match Report.
A lifelong enthusiast of the sport of Dressage, Linda enjoys learning from classical masters and applying their concepts to her own work.
