3* Parelli Licensed Instructor and Horse Development Specialists

Brandy House is the perfect setting for your horse to learn & develop in a safe yet stimulating setting. Where better to learn how to trail-ride than on the thousands of acres of Radnorshire’s wide & open hills? If he can cope out there he will be set up for life! Brandy House is a busy working rural tourism facility so there is lots of stimulus to create confident horses as well as a large arena and a dedicated natural “play” field with many challenging obstacles & patterns to ride & guide around and of course the open hills which make this location so unique.

Whether your horse is coming to us to be started, re-started or to work through particular issues, the aim of the month is for horses & their owners to go home with the building blocks in place to be able to confidently:                            

a. Understand Parelli’s 7 games                                                                                                                                
b. Walk, trot & canter (both leads) on line & ridden                                                                                                    
c. Be able to hack out alone & with other horses                                                                                                        

In other words a solid foundation to keep building higher and higher!                                                                           
9 times out of 10 this can be easily achieved during the month course or less but in some cases further work will be needed. Jamie will keep you informed of progress & his ongoing assessments of your horse and you will be able to discuss & work out with him how best to continue to progress & grow in your relationship with your horse.

Jamie will have one or two students working under him this year, whom are working in level 3 & 4 of the Parelli programme & will be living on site to care for the horses in training as well as learning with their own horses. You will have a chance to meet the whole team & discuss your horse’s requirements when you arrive.

After the first 10 hours (or whatever number you have requested) there will be a chance to discuss your horse’s progress either in person or on the phone. Then at the end of your horse’s time with us we highly recommend you have some lessons with Jamie to help you with his/her further development. You will receive a written report at the end of the training detailing how every hour was spent with your horse along with notes on the way the session went.


Training with Jamie is charged by the hour, which obviously varies with each different horse. When booking forms you will be asked how many hours you would like spent with your horse after which Jamie will talk to you to discuss your horses progress.

Livery charges £15 per day including stable, turnout, hay
