ESA STUDENT INCENTIVES  
 
__________________________________________________________ 
 
 
These are difficult times.  In an effort to help students continue their training we are pleased to offer the following discounts.   
 
For those who do not complete the classes in these time frames there is no penalty, but they are not eligible for the additional discount. 
 
We hope that this will help those who are looking to supplement their current income, or start a new career doing something they love, in the field of natural horse/hoof care  
 
Overview 
 
There are two Student Incentive discounts available, one for completing a full term in 4 months OR one for completing a full term in 6 months.  Any student completing all six classes in one term within 4 months is eligible for an additional 20% off the next term when paid in full within 30 days of completion of the previous term.  Any student completing all six classes in one term within 6 months is eligible for an additional 10% off the next term when paid in full within 30 days of completion of the previous term.  Incentive discounts apply to terms two and three only.  Please see the requirements for each outlined below. ** 
 
 
 
Student Incentive - A

Why the ESA makes sense 
 
Most hoof care issues do not originate in the hoof.  If you have the education and experience to be able to assess a horse, help determine where the problem originates and recommend the appropriate professional (chiropractic, saddle fit, dental,  etc.) to address the issue, not only will your job with the feet be much easier, but you will gain the respect and trust of your community including other equine professionals.  If you fail to recognize mitigating factors that are adversely affecting the hooves, your trimming skills will be called into question when the feet donít improve.  The ESA gives you the comprehensive education needed to properly evaluate and address complex issues in the field.  Simply learning to trim is not enough.
