When signing up for the Certified Practitioner Course, all distance courses are included!
You do not need to sign up for any other online course in this program.
Although a large portion of the program is conducted online, the course concludes with a 6 DAY HANDS ON INTENSIVE, final exam/practicum and reviewed case studies (*to be scheduled and paid at conclusion of the online/distance portion*).
Depending upon the amount of time you have to study, you can expect to spend about six months to a year completing the distance portion of the program, but there is no time limit.
This program is for you if you genuinely desire to not only understand the mechanics of the equine physical body, but to reach deeply into the world of the horse, and find appreciation for your own intuition and energetic connection. You will be gaining a truly amazing and rewarding way to make a living and a difference!
* The certified practitioner course includes a 15% discount on the 5 modules from purchasing separately.
* Please note that state veterinary boards regulate the laws in each state regarding animal bodywork and massage. You will want to look into the laws in your state before committing to a career in Equine Bodywork. These laws are continually changing. You can view the current list with the International Association of Animal Massage and Bodywork to check the latest information from your state CLICK: HERE - IAAMB. You can also check out the American Veterinary Medical Associations Scope of Practice for complementary and alternative veterinary medicine practice act update April 2019 CLICK: Here - AVMA.
* For further and the most up-to-date information on your state, call your state veterinary medical association and ask for the most recent exact wording from the Practice Act regarding Animal Bodywork. I usually make the distinction that this is massage and NOT chiropractic work.

I read once that if you want to write a book, you should write the book you want to read. Taking this advice, I have spent the past eight years creating the course(s) I would want to take while keeping within rigorous standards. All this information and training was not available in any one program when I first imagined such a gratifying career and there were few coaches to guide me.
When I am performing bodywork on horses, there is SO much more going on with them than I could possibly put into categories, theories or techniques. Although I always feel an awesome surge of validation when a horse awards me with what we call a “release” (yawning, stretching, licking and chewing), I somehow know that isn’t the full story. When I am deeply tuned in to the energy, I almost sense the horse will offer the “release” just to help me through the energetic moment; as if to encourage me along. So, I went deeper, learning from every avenue I could – especially the horse. In developing this program, my goal is to help students learn how to “feel”, gain empathy, and mostly to believe in themselves. I want to bring out that deep childlike depth and conviction which, to me feels like the same space that horses hold (and they are just waiting for us to catch up). This space has no rules or validation because it is nothing more than the present moment being shared between two souls. This is where magic happens.
The scientific approach to bodywork often felt cold and emotionally void to me; while the excited, “look she’s yawning” as the end answer to what is going on felt very shallow. I wanted to offer a deeply rich and intuitive experience while still teaching the scientific basics of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and pathology.
For a long time, I was afraid people would take what I have to offer as too “Woo-Woo”. Fortunately, my faith and an incredible business coach prevailed and The School of Applied Integrative Therapy ~ Equine essentially birthed itself. This program is not only nationally and Internationally accredited, but weaves itself around stories from my own truly incredible journey with learning, growing, and intimately experiencing bodywork, natural and ancient healing practices, horses, and spiritual and personal development. Students not only gain knowledge, but also inner growth, depth of connection, and hopefully, a renewed belief in themselves and the world of equine. I would love to share this knowledge and deep experience with anyone wishing for such a valued and rewarding career or addition to horsemanship.
