Just a month and a half after the conclusion of this year’s Clinician Academy, our 2019 roster is already filling up! The seven-week program is dedicated to helping horsemen passionate about the Method fine-tune their skills in the Fundamentals level and attracts horsemen from around the world.
Horsemen enter the program with varying goals, some choose to treat the seven-week course like a clinic to add to their horsemanship knowledge and have no desire to teach the Method to other horsemen and others enter the program with the desire to build a career and use the Method professionally. Horsemen who attend the course with hopes of being certified to use the Method on a professional level must pass a written and practical exam. If they pass the exams, they are certified to teach the Fundamentals level of the Method and become Method Ambassadors.
The 2019 Clinician Academy will take place April 29th thru June 14th and will be taught by Professional Clinician Kristin Hamacher. “Kristin knows the Method inside and out and is a skilled horsewoman and a phenomenal instructor,” Clinton says. “She’s a go-getter and knows the Method as well as I do and is nothing short of a perfectionist. Her passion for teaching and her dedication to the Method and horsemanship will be an inspiration to students to reach their full potential during the course.”
While Kristin will lead training sessions and work with the students one-on-one, Clinton will oversee the course, interact with students on a weekly basis, and test students to ensure they meet his exacting standards.
Only 20 spots are available for the course and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Details about the Clinician Academy, including the application, can be found on our website. Questions about the Academy should be directed to Connie Harris at [email protected] or 254-552-1088.
