Each student has many wonderful horse partners.
PAY BY THE MODULE
Each module $2200.
NOTE: Students pay $2200 per module. The business training and Licensure Exam prep courses are included in the tuition.
YES, WE HAVE A PAYMENT PROGRAM
For students who need to spread their payment out, we offer a no-interest payment plan spread over four months. Speak with our staff to get approval. The first payment is an $800 deposit. Two payments of $500 and one payment of $400 each are due on the first of the month following the class. If you want to pay this way, include all the checks, post-dated, in your application.
1st month: $800
2nd month: $500
3rd month: $500
4th month: $400
If you have a different plan that would work better for you, run it by us. If it works for us, too, we will arrange it. We try our best to make the training accessible for each student. We prefer to work out payment plans with students directly to make sure the tuition is affordable and works with their particular situation.
WHEN AM I REGISTERED FOR THE COURSE?
Students are registered once tuition is received and the application is accepted. Because our classes are so small, we strongly encourage prospective students to register as soon as possible.
Tuition is due 30 days before the course begins. Paying well in advance helps us know when to close a course that’s approaching fullness. In the past we’ve had students send in payments in the short time just before this deadline and had to tell them we just filled the class and they’d have to wait until later in the year for the next course. They were disappointed and we felt bad about it so now we suggest early payments so everyone can plan better. When you do that you make our job much easier and we’re grateful for it.
We hold places for each module once payment is received. We ask that students pay as soon as they know they want to be in Modules 2 and 3, and preferably not later than 30 days before the start of the next class. This helps us know which classes are full and which ones to continue marketing. We can take someone coming in less than 30 days before the class begins if we’ve still got room. It is always worth asking.
HOW MANY MODULES SHOULD I TAKE?
Students can take Module One without committing to the entire training. If you’re not sure about the class, take Module One and try it out. This is a good way to find out if the work sings to you.
All students who seek certification take the first three modules. Upon satisfactory completion of all courses and homework in the Equine Natural Movement Series, the school approves certification as an Equine Natural Movement practitioner.
ADVANCED CERTIFICATION & TEACHER TRAINING
Students seeking Advanced Certification may apply after a year of working in the field. Graduates of the Advanced Course may apply to take the Teacher Training. These practitioners may be invited to join our Equine Natural Movement Series adjunct faculty where they mentor new students and earn income doing so.
We intentionally keep our class ratio small. The class size in our basic courses is six students per teacher. This way every student gets plenty of individual attention and is able to reach their highest skill level. That makes everyone, including the horses, happy.
HOW LONG DOES THE TRAINING TAKE?
Most students take the first three classes over about a year, with one module per season. Everyone’s circumstances are different and it’s fine with us for you to spread the modules further and take more than a year to complete.
Cancellation: Canceling with short notice creates scheduling problems that may prevent another student from attending. We assess a $250 non-refundable fee for cancellations with less than 15 days notice so if there’s a problem, do let us know as far in advance as you can. Covid-related reasons make us highly flexible. Just talk with us.
WHERE TO STAY: Sleeping and Eating
Need a place to stay while you’re taking the class? Most students stay at nearby AirBnBs. Some even have horses. We have a list for students of local homes that house students and area motels.
