This has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life! Even if I don’t earn a dime with this as a business, it has been worth every cent. The curriculum is thorough and difficult, but doable! I feel super equipped to have a successful business. My horsemanship skills have sky rocketed and I feel so confident in the fact that I know how my horse works inside and out, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Horses respond to me so much better, because ‘I get them’ now. I highly recommend this school. Mary Lou is a great teacher, patient and kind, but at the same time has high expectations of her students. I have gone over the schools textbooks and videos numerous times and I take something new away every time. I have all of her lessons printed out in binders in my office. Invaluable resources for the future!
