“This course is an amazing resource for the adult amateur! Jec Ballou is a down to earth teacher, and she explains the content in a clear and interesting manner. The course does an excellent job of summarizing important big picture concepts, like evaluating posture and how posture relates to healthy movement, and Jec provides simple, effective ideas to improve any horse’s health and soundness. As a horsewoman and mom, I especially enjoyed the module that addressed balancing life with horsemanship, and found some excellent tips and reminders that I plan to use with my own horse. As the former director of a college equine studies program, I was impressed by the quality of the Equitopia course. The discussion questions at the end of each module were thought provoking, encourage the student to dig deeper into the content, and to make it their own. I loved the helpful tips and resources related to learning, like handouts, good quality images, journal pages that students can write notes on, and the opportunity to access an Equitopia Facebook page and Equitopia webinars on related topics.  I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to improve their horse’s physical condition and mental soundness. Incorporating the concepts and exercises described in the course into your daily work will surely enhance your relationship with your horse!”
