We’re not going to make you buy special clothes, dress a certain way or force you to do things before you’re ready- We aim to make this course affordable, inclusive, and understanding of everyone’s individual needs… horses included!

OFF THE HORSE COURSE
Our online instructor course
We understand how hard it is when our herd becomes old, injured or burned out. I've designed this course to guide other instructors to build a quality, personalized, accessible and herd friendly equine experience for your clients.
I offer my online course on a sliding scale, (from $249 to $999) feel free to choose a fee in the range you’re comfortable with.
I do this to offer my services to clients in every income bracket without diminishing the value of the course.Currently, I do have limited lower scale positions available and if I do not have any lower scale spots available, I will put you on a wait list and let you know when one opens up.
OTHC will give you the confidence to start producing quality, personalized, progressive, unmounted experiences for your students, so regardless of the weather (or herd soundness) you keep your barn on budget.
During our 4 zoom meetings we deep dive into your business, brainstorm and find different techniques to grow it. I LOVE thinking outside the box, and can’t wait to help you build your own unique program truly highlighting your own personality. All of our materials are designed to be edited to YOUR herd and can be duplicated for use by your students.
Currently scheduling for June 2023
