As a Parelli Professional, my goals include helping my students gain a better understanding of the nature of horses (why they behave the way they do) and help them create a powerful relationship with their horses so they can do the things they dream about doing. Some of your goals may be:

Being safe when around your equine riding or on the ground

Being able to trailer load your horse calmly and quickly

Riding beautiful trails

Liberty training

Competing in the show ring

I can help you get there! AND you can have a relationship with your horse at the same time. I look forward to meeting both of you!

Here are a few things that might help you get to know me better:

Duncanville High School, 1973-1976, owned Sam, my first horse, a QH mare

Texas A&M University, 1976-1979

UT Houston Dental School, 1979-1983
Started a dental practice in Plano, Texas, 1984

Married Randy Farmer, 12/18/1981. Randy has unfailingly supported my dream of horses, even before he knew what the dream was!

Adopted our son Ben, 09/28/1992

Bought Walker, my "crazy" Quarab, April 2004 and began my Parelli journey

Moved to Houston in 2006

Bought Maverick, a QH, with Wendy Carpenter, November 2010

My personal Parelli  journey has included a Fast Track course in Florida in 2011 (with Walker), the one star Instructor course in 2012, the two star Instructor course in Florida in 2013, an instructor horsemanship course with Carol Coppinger, 6 star Master Instructor in 2013 (with Maverick), a Super Camp assisting Carol Coppinger in 2014 (with Walker), the first ever Colt Start course in Truscott, Texas with Pat Parelli in June of 2014, along with numerous clinics and private lessons with Dr. Grady Carter, 3 star Instructor, Kerri Ann April, 4 star Instructor and Christi Rains, 4 star Master Instructor, Horse Development Specialist and Game of Contact Instructor (with both Walker and Maverick). In 2015, I will be riding with Linda Parelli in her Master class in Florida and I will be the clinic coordinator for the next Colt Start in Truscott, Texas in March, 2015.

My dream of horses started when I saw Roy Rogers and Dale Evans in the July 4th parade in Apple Valley, California in 1964. As a small child, I was in awe of the majesty and grace of two people on horseback who's joy in the moment was so obvious. In 2003, horses started to call back to me. I first leased a lovely Quarab (Quarter Horse/Arab cross), but sadly lost her to colic just nine months after the decision to buy her. I did not let that stop my dream of horses, however, and bought Walker, another Quarab. Walker turned out to be a bit different, though.

Extremely spooky, oppositional, and reactive, I felt pretty helpless about what to do with him. Providentially for me, I moved to a barn where everyone was a Parelli student. Now, Walker is a Level 4 horse. We have a powerful relationship that has led to many amazing moments together. What started out just trying to have more skills to deal with my "crazy" horse has now become a lifelong passion to help others become  better horseman and develop strong relationships with their horses.

In 2010, I bought another horse, Maverick, a quarter horse. I own Maverick with my friend Wendy Carpenter and he is the opposite of Walker, calm and willing. He has challenges unlike Walker, so bringing him along has provided additional challenges and triumphs.

How can I help you? Whatever your dreams and goals are, I look forward to helping you!
