Check out what's new at Starr Horse Retreats!
For the first time, the Whole Horse-Whole Human program is being offered as a blended learning experience! It includes the online modules as well as a month at our partner location, Starr Horse Retreats.
The Whole Horse-Whole Human program is a unique endeavor that covers natural horse care, least intrusive and minimally aversive care and handling, positive reinforcement-focused training and lesson instruction as well as the mental, emotional, and practical skills needed to productively work with horses, work with people, and launch and maintain a business.
For this blended learning, certain online modules will be required to be completed before the in-person work, while other modules will overlap with your in-person work.
There will be the option to apply for certification. Some of the practical and demonstrative certification requirements can be met while here and the case studies will be assigned and completed after you return home.
In-person work will be a combination of:
- two days per week of demonstration and coaching with me at SHRA
- three days per week of completing assignments with horses from the SHRA herd
- there will be the option to do day trips to HH for further coaching and to work with the horses here who are further along in their work than most of the horses at SHRA, this option will be an additional cost.
The BETA group's in-person work is from 3/24/23 through 4/21/23 and they will have the BETA cost of $1499 for the whole program including lodging. Participants will be responsible for their food. A $500 deposit is due upon registration to hold your spot.
