Apprenticeship Program set for 2015

The long awaited course materials and application for Leslie Desmond's 2015 - 2016 apprenticeship program will be ready on December 20th.  The proposed curriculum was circulated last month among Leslie's long-time students, other trainers, friends and close working associates in the US and abroad.  The feedback was very useful!

Excellent suggestions about the scope of the material to be covered in the 2-year program and the opportunity for students to bring their own horses were incorporated, as were suggestions for format and course size and cost.

The overview looks this way:

Course length: Two 3-week sessions per year for two years (2015-2016).

Class size: Limit 5 students per session.

Class format: 6 Days study, and one day off per week after basic chores are covered.

For details about cost, accommodations, format, and class options (there will be separate classes held for beginning/intermediate and advanced/training level students) write to Leslie here: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
