Hunter's Story Hunter entered into Parelli Natural Horse-Man-Ship from a position as a full- time Hollywood Stuntman with 20 years experience in western and other horse related productions and training. After leaving the Hollywood scene he returned to his roots on the family ranch in Arizona. In the last 9 years he has embraced the Parelli Natural Horse-Man-Ship system to become a 4 Star Instructor, licensed to instruct since 2004. When Hunter is not teaching a clinic or lesson he can be found team roping and guiding remote horse camping adventures for his Hollywood celebrity friends, royalty and heads of state. Many of Hollwood's elite continue to call on Hunter to help select their horse, and train both horse and rider in some cases to championship levels.
Credentials and Training Hunter has many national team roping titles and barrel racing trophies to his credit. He also has trained and coordinated over 50 horses at a time for major movie productions. This included months of rider instruction to bring non-riders to Hollywood performance capabilities without the use of stunt doubles. During his tenure in the TV and movie industry over 2,000 horses and 250 riders were trained under his supervision. Many of these situtions were in foriegn countries overcoming "rough prospects" and student with language barriers. From driving, racing, western and english Hunter mastered all of his training challenges. He came away from these experiences realizing that his self-taught skills were not enough and limited in scope. During his international travels he met Pat Parelli and knew he found what he was looking for.
In late 2004, Hunter became immersed in Parelli Natural Horse-Man-Ship. He found a system allowing all owners to develop meaningful relationships with horses, achieving any level of horsemanship they could imagine. Throughout that time, Hunter studied with Pat & Linda at the ISC, attending all instructor courses/ conferences and numerous colt starting/ difficult horse and Levels courses offered.
