Also..anything all online for horses isn't going to give you anything you can't get for free..Not worth it, imo.

In my mind, even if that one ^^ is accredited, it's still scammy looking to me. Any 'school' without a .edu web address tells me to stay away from it - and the website build is not very professional at all.

Seriously - you can learn as much from YouTube, Trainers, and Books as you could paying for an 'online training school'

Guelph doesn't have a .edu address, but they are legit. Maybe cause they are canadian?

I can't think of any Canadian schools with .edu websites.

Basically a scam.

And even if it wasn't? This will avail you nothing, no horse person worth their salt is going to look at a paper earned online, and be impressed.

Horses make me a better person.

What do you guys think of this one? It is online, but the more hands on classes (riding theory, etc) require you to send in a video of you working on a horse. The farrier class is 100% an on site thing.

Global Equine Academy on-line professional equine training

Basically, because of where I live I am very limited on physical contact woth horses. I will be moving in about six months, but I want to get started. I'm sure I can arrange for a friend of mine to let me work with her horse for the video. In this town, there are no apprenticeships, no lessons, and only one English speaking horse owner. This is my only option for 150 miles.
