Eventerdrew, you are too funny! Lol. I love my boy, he's awesome :)
Kitten val, I will be able to take lessons from Mastery Students and/or Instructors if they are available. My horse is going with me, yes. I don't think I'd be as excited to go if he wasn't going with me! Lol.

Oh, I see. Then it sounds pretty similar to barns around. Good luck there and have fun!
That's awesome SpiritHorse! I was looking at some of his DVDs and stuff today. Lol. But, I also have been looking at Monty Roberts (I read his book, but then went to his website, I think he's a little nutty, lol) and John Lyons too.
I am so happy for you to get that oppurtunity, the main reason I don't wanna be a certified "so and so" trainer, is becuase I don't like every method that one guy uses, I like to combine different ones and come with my 'own' style.
Good Luck you'll have a lot of fun I'm sure, have you seen Parrelli's horseman's apprentice on RFDTV? It was kinda cool and I'm assuming you'll be doing the similar thing but I've got a question maybe you can answer for me, what's the difference between all the interns, externs,proteges, and such and the one and two star apprentices/proffesionals? I know a few of them became one/two star Parrelli professional trainers and such. I was thinking about doing it over the summer since they are in the same state as I am. (but I agree with chevy princess I don't want to be a so and so professional I like learning and using others methods as well)
I haven't seen the Horseman's Apprentice, don't have time to watch TV much lol. When you pay to go to a course that isn't a 2 week deal, you first have to be an Intern, then the next level is Extern, then you can be a Protege....you can then decide whether you want to become an instructor or not. This is how I understand it anyway, however I haven't kept utd on their design of courses and how it all works. It's all on their website I believe.
