David Lichman is a 5-Star Master Parelli Professional with a specialty in the gaited breeds. He teaches all over the world helping students find a better relationship with their horses, and the relaxation and posture that are fundamental to all riding, but especially with gaited horses.

Following a World Grand Championship win in the Pleasure Tennessee Walking Horse division, David has spent the last 25 years working with horses from every gaited breed.  He has a series of best-selling educational products, Gaited Horses, Naturally!, that show how to have great success with a more natural approach.

David also has a specialty in Liberty Horses, having performed in shows all across the continent with his three-horse act, which includes bridle-less riding and riding to music.

He is the creator of Liberty Outside the Round Pen, a Parelli Mastery Series release. In this 4-DVD set, David gives step-by-step instructions on building a connection that resists distractions, enabling students to play at Liberty with exuberance in large open areas.

David lives in California with his wife, two children, nine horses, four dogs, four cats and dozens of chickens, pigeons and canaries. Visit his web site at: DavidLichman.com for information on educational materials, courses and long-distance video coaching. David is a strong supporter of Equine Therapy for all humans, but especially for veterans returning from service.  At Expo, visit David in Booth P103 in the Poultry Barn.
