The EQ50 online course is also the required precourse study guide used for our signature Equinology
Equine Body Worker (

The EEBW course numbers: EQ100, EQ101, EQ102 and EQ105 Parts A and B are all the same course content but differ in amount of days attending and hours per day. You will also find the EQ50 Equine Anatomy Distance Study course very helpful if taking courses from another program as well as any of Equinology’s courses in anatomy, neurology, biomechanics, saddle fitting and any other modality for horses.

Debranne Pattillo will be monitoring the group should you have any questions for her directly in regards to the course material.
To support the
Section Three: Palpating Surface Anatomy, a
video is up at www.youtube.com and the two parts can be located by typing Equinology in the search box. This video was done by the participants of the EQ101: Equine Body Worker® Certification Course and the EQ103: Advanced Equine Massage Techniques Level One at Flying Cloud Farm, Petaluma, CA in April and May of 2009. They stayed after class several days to show you the bones against the horse and then how to locate the surface anatomy! Illustrations also help the material. This video is available to the general public (ps. there is no audio)
This is a self paced group and there is no need to be in front of a computer at a scheduled time. You have one year from the time of registration to go through the course material. When you have done this, you will request the final exam (which will be emailed to you upon request) and you have a time limit of 2 months to complete the exam. No worries! You have 3 attempts to pass.
$35 administration charge is added to this free course to cover handling costs of certificates of completion for student's documentation which includes proof of continuing education for NCBTMB members (this will be sent via email), processing paperwork and registration for the course (copyright notices and credit card fee) and server charges to send files to the group as well as numerous other costs the Equinology office incurs to enable you to participant.
