Keeping Up with Kelly Sigler By Suzanne Murphree

In our fast paced world it’s so easy to lose track of people. I always enjoy taking the time to keep up with my friends, both old and new. It’s a good thing that can enrich you with the gems that are the talents of friends and bless you with new knowledge and information. Kelly Sigler, a Three Star Parelli Professional, and I first crossed paths back last summer when she was lead instructor on the Pagosa Springs Fast Track Team. I was just part of the student crowd huffing and puffing up and down the hills of the Parelli Ranch. Kelly is a down to business type of girl but with a dash of wry humor thrown in. I liked her. And as soon as I caught my breath I enjoyed chatting a spell or two. So in January when she notified me that she was passing through my neck of the woods I jumped at the chance to host her and a couple of her advanced students at my place. She was a gracious house guest and an awesome teacher. A handful of us lucky locals got private lessons in both the Parelli method and Biomechanics. Kelly is a double treat. Not only is she an endorsed Parelli Professional, but she is also a certified Biomechanics instructor. Ahh. You may ask, “What is biomechanics?” Great question and the good news is that the concept is simple and can be taught! Biomechanics is how the body moves and stays in balance when riding. If the rider is an inefficient mover then the ride experience can create pain for both the rider and the horse. When the rider improves then the ride experience improves and the rider can stay in a stronger and safer position. The horse is happier, too. This helps give the beginner rider a safer start and it gives the competitive rider an edge to stay in the saddle longer and pain free. Its way more than the old “keep your heels down”. It’s the answer to why the heels go up in the first place. Keeping up with Kelly now means keeping in balance with Biomechanics. To borrow a quote “It’s a good thing.” For more information: Kelly Sigler www. kellysigler.com Parelli Natural Horsemanship www.parellinaturalhorsetraining.com
