  • Hoof Falls & Footfalls Learning Platform- This will be the primary platform that provides the course content, assignments, homework, discussion, and support. This platform is home to Intuitive Instructor Club- IIC membership required as a large majority of homework videos will come from here. IIC membership is required. Any length membership is OK (you will need to have access to the IIC for 5 months so keep that in mind! A free user account is not a member account)
  • Zoom: Live lectures, discussions, photo and video analysis, etc.


  • Monthly units- Content will be divided out into monthly units so participants can work through the content at their own pace and during a time that works with their schedule.
  • Regular discussion prompts will be posted and participants are welcome to post questions at any time in the private group.
  • Live meetings will take place monthly where participants can get a chance to learn through mini-lectures, discussion of that month's topics, and analyze real-life photos and videos submitted by fellow learners.


  • Once enrollment closes, enrolled participants will VOTE ON LIVE MEETING TIMES so we can get days/times that work best for the majority!
  • Meetings will either be 2x a month for approximately 1.5 hours each time or 1x a month for approximately 3 hours each time (frequency/format will be VOTED ON BY PARTICIPANTS)
  • Live meetings will be recorded so if someone is unable to attend they can watch at a later time.

COURSE LOAD (how much time should you expect to invest?). If a participant takes FULL advantage of all the course has to offer they can expect:

  • 3+ hours of LIVE lecture and discussion per month (15+ hours total over entire course)
  • 8-10 hours of assigned educational videos per month (32-40 hours total)

Why is this course price discounted so much? Although this course is worth well over $575 and filled with professional, college-level material, Saebra strives to provide education to instructors that is affordable and accessible and the pricing given to you reflects this mindset. She knows the time and investment instructors put towards their instructor journey...and she also recognizes the possible drastic difference in what instructors make across the EAS and traditional equine industry. The affordable pricing is also set at a rate that hopefully encourages participants to purchase the other suggested resources to add to their own "instructor library"!

NOTICE: Course payment registration is final and non-refundable once processed. If you are no longer able to participate in this course you are welcome to transfer your "seat" to another individual. Please reach out to Saebra at if this situation arises.
