My name is Sandy Hodskins and after 2 years of trying I was finally able to arrange for Linda Parelli to teach in New Hampshire! I have been studying Parelli Natural Horsemanship through the home study course for the past 12 years. I started out by purchasing and selling trail horses. Each horse I purchased, I would put through level 2 in the program before finding them their perfect new partners. Ten years ago I purchased an untouched Kiger Mustang filly that I named West Wind and together we completed level 4 of the Parelli program and learned a lot along the way. Two years ago I was given a handsome black gelding named Toona. Toona was formerly shown in dressage however his nervous and reactive manners made the owner decide he wasn't the horse for her. I have spent the past 2 years gaining his trust, building his self-confidence as well as his respect in me as a leader. I will be riding him in this clinic as I want to learn more about how to help him when he becomes scared and worried. I would like to enter him to another dressage show someday when we are ready.
