The Equine Natural Movement Series Professional Training
Covid-19 Update: All dates subject to change. Please stay in touch as we navigate these curious times.
With national quarantines in place, we could not run our 2020 class in the usual face-to-face class format we were used to. Instead, we changed the format and moved our Module One class ONLINE and LIVESTREAM. This class has the added requirement that each student has access to a horse in their barn or nearby for practice sessions. We will continue to offer both formats. Please tell us which you prefer and we will get more scheduled.

We teach a Module One class each quarter. Classes are held at our biodynamic farm in southwest Washington.

Sometimes a student requires more time in between modules and we can accommodate that. We prefer students attend each next module within a year so the information is still fresh in their minds.

Sometimes we can book dates to accommodate students who have tight schedules. One of our students, a university anatomy professor, could only come once a year during spring break, so for three years we made sure we offered a module during her break. If we have lead time, we can make things work. The Equine Natural Movement Series Professional Training graduates 3 classes each year.
When do you take each class?
Each of the three modules leads into the next. Here’s how it works.
First you attend our week-long Module One (M1). Classes are held at our school in Washington state and sometimes we have a Module One class taught by adjunct faculty in other areas. After the hands-on Module One class, you’ll return home to do your M1 homework. Homework takes 4 to 6 months. Once satisfactorily completed, you are ready for Module Two.
Module Two is a week-long course at the school followed by 4 to 6 months of homework. Once your M2 homework is satisfactorily completed, you can attend Module Three at the school.
After attending Module Three, you’ll have up to six months to complete your M3 homework and graduate from our school. Most students complete the entire course in one year or a bit longer.
Completion of this course qualifies students to take the NBCAAM exam which provides our graduates with national certification. If you live in Washington, you can also apply for WA state licensure.
Students also are invited to take our online Business Course. Cost is included in the basic tuition.
Build a Professional Practice that actually earns money and gives you plenty of great publicity while being authentic and honest
This course is taught online with individual teacher contact throughout the course. You build your business in your home area as you do the assignments. Students are automatically enrolled in this course after they’ve completed the first week of Module One.
Materials are posted online and students do the course at their own pace. Students actively work on developing business skills and building a strong foundation to their new practice.
Advanced Series Work
Class teaches some fascinating and very sensitive work Joseph has been developing over the past few years. Have you been out in the field practicing for a year or more, enough that you are very familiar and comfortable with what you can do with the series? Then it may be time to learn more. Call and speak with us to find out if you are ready for the Equine Natural Movement Series Professional Training advanced work class.
Some of our graduates have been invited to join our faculty. Teacher trainings are arranged individually. If you’d like to learn to teach this work, speak with us.
