ESA Junior Program 
____________________________________________________________ 
 
 
The ESA is proud to launch our Junior Program. 
The curriculum and program for Juniors is the same, but there are a few stipulations. 
 
Applicants must be at least 16 years of age. 
 
Applicants must have parental consent in writing. (Applicant must submit a hard copy of the ESA Parental Consent Form signed by a custodial parent or legal guardian.) 
 
Applicants must have some horse experience - this will be evaluated by the Academy. 
 
Juniors may finish the program at their own pace, but are only eligible for full certification once they turn 18.   Juniors would be able to work trimming as a student and/or intern as many do (based on experience and comfort level) but wouldn't get the certificate until their 18th birthday.
