Rachel's Equine Scholarship

I'm looking for donations for my college experience at Clinton Anderson’s Clinician Academy in Farmington, Arkansas. I am one of only 10 in 2021 who have been accepted into this very reputable equine training school which teaches Clinton’s Method (as he calls it) for training horses. I will be learning The Method from the man himself. This experience will allow me to be certified by him as a Method Ambassador and have the power of Clinton’s backing, his name, and business marketing to train horses, give lessons and conduct clinics on my own.

Michele has graciously gifted me the opportunity to work under her and be her apprentice for the last 18 months.  We practice Clinton Anderson’s Method because it is a clear, step by step, way to have a safer horse and create a trusting partnership with your horse. The last 18 months have made me realize that this is what I want to do with my life and I am very excited to continue learning and growing in my true passion: HORSES!  I am happy I’m going to a school that will further my career and give me a way to start building my own business.  I can’t think of anything that would make me happier.

I am required to bring two horses with me.  I am bringing a quarter horse named Remi and a half Arabian/half quarter horse named Kizmit.  I will need to provide all their feed, vet supplies, shavings for the stalls, etc. as well as my own room and board and travel expenses for the 6 weeks I will be there.  I am asking for help with these expenses and will be grateful and deeply appreciative for any amount you might want to donate.
