Tara Parcella has 16 years of riding experience in competitive and non-competitive disciplines. She began with basic western riding and barrel racing until she found her true love of jumping. Tara has experience in the hunter and equitation rings and was President of the Equitation show team at UC Santa Cruz. She has also competed at local gymkhana shows.
Her ultimate goal is to be the most well-rounded rider she can be. To achieve this she has studied some basic dressage, natural horsemanship as well as just spending countless hours on trails. Tara hopes to help her students find the same passion she has for riding and achieve their personal goals, whatever they may be. She believes there is no limit to the experiences and lessons that you can learn both in the saddle as well as on the ground. Most importantly Tara wants her students to feel safe and confident while still overcoming challenges and learning as much as they can.
