Model: Partnering With Horses – Work With Them, Don’t Use Them

Giving horses a meaningful and purpose-filled job allows them to be the teachers they were destined to be, to bring joy, help, heal, and provide answers for humans! A horse can only think, act and react like a horse. Gain knowledge in what your horse is ‘saying’ and take the guesswork out of understanding them. The horses are PARAMOUNT to your business’s success, and that’s why ensuring that the horse’s Welfare is #1, is our biggest priority! That’s why we put such an emphasis on the physical and mental components of what our horses need in order to be successful teachers. The research is already done on the horse’s language to learn and understand clearly what they are telling us. They are communicating with us all the time, but knowledge in their language of what they are saying sets you above the rest, knowing what these magnificent creatures need now and always. When we understand this, your life will change for the better with anything you do with your horse, as they will figure out very quickly, ‘you get it,’ ‘you now hear them’, and ‘you now understand’.

3-Day Hands-On Training – You’ll Take Part In Dynamic Exercises Led By Our Distinguished Instructors

Horses and programs and programs and horses are all we cover with these invaluable days: experiential learning for you will take you to the next stage of knowing the influence of how the horse teaches and give you an understanding of what your clients are going to feel themselves. Distinctive teaching methodologies. Experiential learning has been termed “the natural way of learning” and defined as the process by which the learner’s experience is reflected upon, from which new insights emerge.

The 3-day training, hands down, is the piece that brings everything together! You will be blown, and I repeat, blown away, with the power of these programs, the form of delivery, the appropriate application, and of course, the stars of the programs, the horses!! The horses are going to take you to a place you’ve never been!! We promise that!! PLUS, you will receive your beautiful certificate and move forward in your programs with confidence!

Support, Training And Aftercare – Essential For A Safe And Productive Learning Environment For All

Our support is second to none! Knowing that you have 24-hour availability to answer all of your ‘Now What?’ questions as they arise. The support goes on forever with this certification without additional costs, all from the comfort of your home. Unprecedented networking opportunities.

You belong to a community that has travelled the road ‘before you’ and ‘with you.’ Accessing these resources will keep you focused on your business to get you to your success. This is the course that keeps on giving!

Getting certified is the first step, but “aftercare” is equally, if not more important. So much information is covered during the course, but you won’t discover what and where you need help until you start applying your knowledge and conducting programs. That’s where our aftercare comes in! To make sure that you aren’t left hanging or on your own! Knowing that you are always a part of an amazing team and being a part of the best family ever will give you continuous motivation for SUCCESS! PRICELESS!
