Module One - Online

FAQ's for Module One Online

Want to attend the Online Module One class? We teach this class in a LiveStream format.

What is required for the online class?

The Live-stream class requires students to have:

(1)  a nearby horse that is calm & patient, to practice on during class,

(2) good online access to our Zoom webinar room, and

(3) a smart-phone for FaceTime or Google Duo while practicing in the barn.

 

How often are online Module One classes offered?

Classes are offered at least once per year, based on student interest. We maintain a waitlist for anyone interested in an online version of Module One. We maintain separate lists for those in the United States, and those in Europe (to accommodate time differences). To get on the wait list, please send us an email.

How does the format differ for the online Module One?

Class runs from 9 am to 5 pm Pacific Time (PST) each day, with a lunch break mid-day.

Teachers lead lectures and students participate in discussion in the morning via Zoom. Written and video materials have been created by the faculty for this class. 

Hands-on horse work happens in the afternoon, using your own horse. You are responsible for finding a horse to practice on. This model horse should be a different horse than your personal horse.

During this hands-on practice time, faculty will observe and guide your skill development and bodywork practice on the horse via video conferencing (Zoom, FaceTime, Google Meet). Every student will receive significant one-on-one time with a faculty member each day.

Will other Module classes be offered online? 

At this time, we offer only Module One online. We may consider adding an additional Module in the future. 

We prefer students attend at least one Module (of three) in person. This allows faculty to watch you engage in the work and provide immediate support and feedback. So much of the work is specific to each individual horse, observing you and the horse in person, helps faculty support you as you learn and practice.
