Horse Development 

Ryan Rose 

4 Star Senior Instructor and Horse Development Specialist

Ryan was a professional horse trainer for four years before coming to Parelli. He discovered through the hard knocks of horse training that in order to really have success with horses, he needed to first become a horseman. After spending 4 weeks at the Parelli Center in Florida, Pat made him and his wife Hillary an offer to stay on long term as mastery students. He spent 4 years at the Parelli center making his way through the program and graduating as Protégé. He has led numerous courses on Campus including several Fast Tracks and spent thousands of hours riding with Pat Parelli as his assistant trainer.

Maureen Dunn 

Foundation Training

Maureen was lucky enough to board her 1st horse at a natural horsemanship stable. This is where she discovered Parelli and fell in love with the program! After studying the program for a several years she began looking for a farm where she could study with Certified Instructors and play alongside like minded people. She found just that at The Horse First Farm.  In 2011 Maureen moved to THF and started working with horses full time.  She also has participated in many clinics including Pat Parrelli's Master Class and was an assistant to 4 Star Prelli Professional Ryan Rose and has worked for and competed with 3 day eventer, Michelle Donlick. In January 2016 Maureen was invited to ride with Pat Parelli at the Parelli Center in Ocala, FL. There she was able to spend time and learn from Pat himself and now brings that experience and education back to her developement horses and students.  Maureen is a Level 4 student who is passionate about horse development and helping horses become better partners for people!
