“The dawn of Parelli Saddles was sparked in 2001 by Linda Parelli’s perpetual desire to help horses, who were often restricted in their natural movement while trying to perform under saddle. Also, riders in such saddles were generally put in the wrong place to be balanced, which caused additional discomfort for the Horse. The simple concept of thinking about how a saddle possibly feels from a horse’s perspective soon became my personal, lifetime mission. It felt like a risky venture when my husband, Art and I founded Natural Horseman Saddles back then. We had no idea that our intrigue would lead to a mastery quest so unique in history. Due to the size of the Parelli audience worldwide, our research incorporated what is likely the broadest range of horse breeds, sizes and rider disciplines ever studied on the subject of saddle fit and saddle product development. Everyone at Natural Horseman Saddles is dedicated to making the world a better place for horses. We are driven by love, passion, commitment to principle, curiosity and the thrill of the work when those big brown eyes give us a soft blink of approval.”
