Parelli Foundation Produces Festival Magnifico 2017
An incredible event featuring some of the most masterful horsemen of our time
Festival Magnifico 2017 celebrates the horse and some of the most masterful horsemen of our time. This is an opportunity to immerse yourself with other like-minded and like-hearted horse lovers and experience educational demonstrations featuring the master horsemen, as well as a variety of events and activities offering something for everyone, including your horse. Professionally developed rescue horses in our Rehoming 4 Life program will be available for adoption through a bidding process that will end on May 7, 2017. Bidders must be approved in advance at FestivalMagnifico.org/r4l-adopt. In addition, on Friday night, the Lone Star Fiesta will feature the Billy Holt Band; on Saturday, Kristyn Harris will start the evening before the Pat Waters and the Chain Link Band concert.
We are thrilled to pay tribute to Tom Dorrance during this weekend, as he has inspired several generations of master horsemen; most of them have been influenced by his teachings. We are very fortunate to have the best of the best with us at Festival, offering demonstrations you won’t want to miss.
