Coaching / Lessons


A Natural Approach to Horse Training

At this time Charlie is not giving lessons, as he has taken a leave of absence as a Parelli Instructor to spent time focusing on improving his horsemanship and communication with Bubba. We will make sure to send information out when he is “back in the saddle” as a Parelli Professional.Charlie encourages all of his students to join the Savvy Club, as he often directs you to Savvy Club DVDs or the website for help between lessons. This important resource can truly accelerate your success as you learn how to use it.

Private Coaching/Lessons
This is a one to three hour lesson. You will discuss your challenges and goals and Charlie will help you determine what the focus of your lesson should be. Trailer Loading – This will be handled at the lesson rates. We schedule 2 hours for this so that we can take the time it takes and keep the relationship first. If it takes less than 2 hours, of course you will only be charged for the time we actually spend. Some horses and humans may need more than one session. Please call Charlie to discuss your needs in advance so he can do his best to set you up for success.

Group Coaching/Lessons

A group lesson is a great way to share your learning experience with one or two of your friends. You will have the opportunity to work on a task while Charlie is assisting your friend, relieving some of the pressure you may feel from a one-on-one setting.

Video Assistance for Official Auditions

Most people have no idea how much or how little progress they are making with their horse, so official auditions help you see your growth or alert you to the fact that you’re doing the same old thing over and over and not making progress. Horses love leaders who are progressive. It’s interesting for them and helps them become calmer, smarter, braver and more athletic. Better than being a pasture potato! They love positive relationships and to become more mentally, emotionally and physically balanced in their life with humans.
