Just last weekend the Parelli Performance Summit was in full swing. There was about 700 people in attendance, which made for a very busy ranch. The buzz was exciting with tents and vendors all eager to share in the event. We regularly hear Pat talk about putting the foundations before specialization, and this event was ALL about specialization. We saw everything from cow work to dressage, and jumping to driving. After the first day I didn't know if it could get any better, buteach day had us glued to our seats wondering what was next. The event ended on the Sunday with pat and Caton doing a wonderful father son demo with 5 of the Atwood horses, it was very touching and inspirational. You can see pictures here.

This week it is a different story on the ranch. The season is wrapping up here at the Parelli Campus as people are slowly but surely leaving, either heading to Florida for the winter, going home, or heading to the World Equestiran Games in Kentucky. The realization hit today as Pat and Linda stopped by the office to say goodbye. There were hugs all around and an air of change.
The last week of Fast Track is taking place at the ranch, after that they prepare to close down for the winter. It<'s hard to believe that this time has come around so quickly and that winter will be upon us soon.
