RingLeader Equine Coach Training


This coach training, limited to no more than 10 trainees, is designed for-skilled coaches or therapists who want to add the power and beauty of equine coaching to their skill set. It’s a fast, intense, and highly effective training program that includes didactic instruction, individual and group supervision, and immersion in experiential, on-site learning at beautiful Blue Star Ranch.
