No special skills or prerequisites are required to attend AWHD. Just an open mind and will power. Many of our students are women because our procedure is easy to perform. Classes are offered in one weekly session, four times a year, and held at different Ranch Resorts around the US. Class time is from 9 to 9 with sharing three meals a day included. Access to instruction and extra help is 24-7, class sizes are small to ensure 2 on 1 instruction. Six levels are required to certify. Each level may be taken at any time class is offered, so you may attend one time per year or up to the four times offered per year.

Subjects include anatomy, physiology, neurology, kinesiology and lots of hands-on practical applications. Testing is given to determine levels. Clients are then referred to students who certify. Other classes are required in horse handling, anatomy, and body work in relation to Dentistry. These classes are necessary to certify.
