AGHR and snow featured in the Parelli Foundation 2018 annual report
AGHR was a 2018 recipient of a small natural horsemanship education grant from the Parelli Foundation in Scottsdale, AZ, in 2018. We received a $1000 grant, half of which we spent on two new training tool kits and some educational materials. We are spending the other half on a fantastic Charity Parelli Clinic with Parelli Professional Susan Nelson at her ranch in Tehachapi on June 9, 2019. This will be a great learning experience for everyone, and we encourage all of our volunteers, foster caregivers, and adopters to attend!
We are proud to see an article featuring our story of Snow, one of our "wildies" who came from a closed sanctuary in Oregon over a year ago. The link is available below.
The story features Snow and has a nice little photo of her standing with our Jr. Ambassadors, Corianne and Becky Dellvon, holding their children's sized Parelli carrot sticks and savvy strings. Snow came to us with significant behavioral challenges, including bolting, avoiding being caught, kicking with hoof handling, and separation anxiety panic behavior. Since working with her more consistently in foster care using Parelli tools and methods, she has mellowed out a lot. She is now able to be haltered, caught, handled for basic grooming, and has shown improvement with her feet and vet care. We were even able to get a teeth float on her last year without too much struggle by our vet.
AGHR is very proud to be a part of the Parelli Natural Horsemanship Education Program. We encourage all of you to look at this article and keep abreast of how the Parelli Foundation helps organizations like ours so we can best serve the needs of our horses in the sanctuary and adoptions program.
