EQUESTRIAN PILATES® CERTIFICATION PROGRAM

Here is what a few past students have said about the program!

This is one of the best comprehensive certification workshops I have been to. You walk away with a ton of information both in your head and with the written material you take home. There is much enthusiasm for the program from the creator, which makes everyone excited!

This certification has given me the tools to build an equestrian focus into my existing Pilates business. Elizabeth is an excellent teacher and loves to share her knowledge. I learned a lot and had fun doing it! I thoroughly recommend this program.
