Sarah Wearing achieves 3* Parelli status

Sarah Wearing achieves 3* Parelli status

The Equest team would like to congratulate senior horse specialist Sarah Wearing on achieving 3* status as a Parelli Natural Horsemanship Instructor in September 2013.

This won’t mean much to you unless you are a student of natural horsemanship! In simple terms this means that Sarah is now one of only 95 3* rated Parelli instructors in the world. (The competency ladder for Parelli instructors goes from 1* – 5*). Nearly half of these are in the USA, with just 12 in the UK.

To achieve this standard, Sarah has proved herself as a world-class natural horsewoman and instructor, having spent almost a year training on the Parelli ranch in Colorado at different times during the past 7 years. Although she’s spent all those months at the ranch, it’s also significant that most of her study has been done in her own time, with her own horses, requiring colossal amounts of self-discipline, dedication, patience and most important of all, passionate leadership.

I know that those of you who have worked with Sarah will join us in congratulating her on this outstanding achievement. If you would like to find out more about her journey, please visit her website at
