Following on your two weeks at our facilities, you will return home to continue practicing what you have learned. By sending us videos you can continue to receive our feedback on your work. It is also during this period that you study theory on horse performance, breeding, feeding and nutrition. When we determine that you are ready, you will return for practical and written exams, at successful completion of which, you will graduate from the Introductory Course and be eligible to take the Advanced Course (at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center in California).
