  • Did you grow up with horses, but haven’t had them in your life for many years and now want to get comfortable working with them again?
  • Do you own a horse, but feel there is so much more you want to learn?
  • Do you want to fill in the “holes” in your equine education?
  • Or perhaps you have always wanted a horse in your life, but don’t know where to begin to learn what is involved in caring for and relating to these amazing animals?


This highly comprehensive training program is designed to give you a wealth of knowledge about horses that could take years to learn from any other method.

If you can relate to any of these scenarios then ES101 is for you.


The program consists of ten webinars, three textbooks, a webinar workbook, and two hands on camps.

Webinars are taught by lifelong horsewomen and industry leaders, Melisa Pearce and Joyce Cowfer.

Camps in Maryland and Virginia are offered by Christina Stinchcomb and Carolyn Fitzpatrick. 

To complete the entire program and to receive your Equine Studies 101 Certificate, you must attend all ten webinars, attend the two clinics, achieve a passing score on the written exam and successfully complete the practical exam with the horses.
