She teaches people of all ages all over the country, from Minnesota to Rhode Island to Florida, and with all kinds of horses, from miniature to draft.
Nita Jo has been in the Parelli Professional program since 1997, and travels frequently to the International Savvy Centers in Colorado and Florida to study and ride with Pat and Linda.
Educated and trained as a social worker and psychologist, Nita Jo practiced for 24 years until resigning that career in 2000 and following her dream of playing and working full time with horses and their humans. Her elite, state-of-the-art facility is in central Minnesota.
This uniquely effective natural horsemanship system has been developed by two of the world’s top horsemen, Pat and Linda Parelli, and is changing the way people train horses, the way we think and feel about them.
