Kjrsos Instructor Classes
Those that could best serve the rest of us, too rarely realize their value. Perhaps not understanding the most important qualities that one needs to become a truly effective guide and teacher. Perhaps not understanding they are exactly the ones we need that can bring about real change and help us create something wonderful out of what is here.
What would it mean to become a teacher?
Are you the ones we seek.
One of the most important things that you can do, is to learn what your super power is. What is it that comes from you that makes you unique. And how that uniqueness makes you different or special but when you teach to it, makes you so much more effective and powerful.
The rewards in becoming a Kjrsos Instructor can be very overwhelming and inspiring. Seeing the changes in the horses is rewarding and to know you can bring health back to the bodies of the horses or just make sure that he never loses full access and can move with power and pride, absolutely beautiful as he floats across the ground is very humbling. And what you bring to those who partner with the horses can be life-changing whether they choose to work from the horse's back or if you utilize the horse as part of a larger expansion of awareness, connection and consciousness in an Equine Facilitated Awareness Program.
The Kjrsos Programs focuses on what is healthy for the horse always. At this level in the courses for Instructors, we begin an entirely new field of study where we discuss how to recognize issues and problems in the horse, how these affect the horse and possible solutions to those issues. This is an area that we will be continually updating throughout the instructor programs and completing in the Instructor Level 3 Program.
Here, we dig down deep. We leave no stone unturned as we expect those who graduate from this level to have incredible knowledge and be ranked amongst the best in the world in that regard. But it is here that you might choose to specialize. You may find that you are more drawn to Equine Facilitated Awareness Programs, or you may find that you are more drawn to help those humans who have chosen to explore the experience of bringing together these two disparate bodies horse and human. Eager to learn the skills and awareness of creating the revered centaur. Where human and horse come together in incredible synchronicity.
You can instantly recognize each by the symbol at the beginning of each course.

Once you are accredited as a Level 2 Instructor look forward to ongoing available sources for education. We cover many subjects not covered in our public courses, including studying many of the notable trainers and instructors of the past and various training programs. We expect intense discussion and debate as we pour over the many different riders of the past and hope through this all of our knowledge will grow. We don't cover this in our regular course, as Kjrsos is focused initially on presenting how to achieve healthy and advanced movement in the horse. We leave this study to advanced riders who have completed the body of work that is Kjrsos. Once we understand how and what works best for the horse, it provides us with the tools to better evaluate other processes. Traditional and otherwise.
We support our instructors with ongoing training, including training and other resources about how to become an instructor, how to start a business in this field and what to expect. We are here for you every step of the way.
This is the premier skill required by the instructor. We can see everything the rider does in the body of the horse.
From the Chosen One Series on How We Can Change the Parameter of Our Relationship in a New and Fundamental Way. The Choosing of Us
This is the beginning of the next level of your equestrian journey, where you begin to help the teachers, both human and horse. Think of it as being at the level of a professor. These are those who have ready to begin teaching the teachers.
When you have the knowledge to begin teaching teachers, you have reached a level of excellence that few in the world will ever reach. The wealth and breadth of knowledge that you have will be humbling though. Because it is here that we finally realize that we will always have so much yet to learn so that we can do the right thing by both human and horse. We can guide but we come to realize we are limited by what we don't know yet but will learn tomorrow. And we come to realize there is always another tomorrow.
We have no mastery level here at Kjrsos as we consider only one being as having the truths that we need to learn and that is the horse. It would be hubris to suggest that we, any of us humans are masters. Thus we have chosen to call no man or woman master. We realize that master is a signal of respect for someone who has so much knowledge to impart to us. But to give any system - any human - the term master, indicates that we cannot question, cannot search for what doesn't work or what might work better. Even here at Kjrsos, especially here. We hope that in all of our hearts we can always be humble and remain a student of the horse, knowing and understanding we all have so much more to learn. In establishing Kjrsos our hope is that we have developed a model that understandably is ever-changing, ever-evolving, while we stay true to our roots and our principles. My fondest personal wish is that we can establish a community to take on this task of evolution who will tread carefully and consciously onwards, long after I am gone. I would love to be here to keep learning from all of you. Human and horse. Considering the amazing things I have been shown, I know there is no way for me to even begin to imagine what you will be shown next.
The Light in me bows to the light in you.
Throughout the pages and the ethos of Kjersos, you will note we don't usually speak to the individual. We talk about concepts, ideas, teachings because we are here to support everyone on their journey, not to take this moment to sit in judgement on their own journey. We can learn a new idea from someone who we completely disagree with, they can bring value, new teachings into our lives. So we talk about the idea, discuss the value this might be to the horse, or perhaps it is something that you need to be aware of because of the possible damage to the horse. But we don't attach to that awareness of the possible harm to the horse an attack on the individual. Whatever they do, as a spirit they are of value as well. And we support their spirits, their growth, their experiences as ones hopefully of potential. I can not like what you do, but still, care for who you are. That is a difficult task. Easy to say to a child we love, but so much more difficult with those who we don't know. Any time we connect damage to another it is so difficult in that empathy not to care, not to weep and not to be angry with a universe that allowed it to happen and in turn not to send our negative thoughts and energy to the one that we perceive as perpetuating those events. Which is why we made the conscious choice to cover knowledge, not people. But it can be helpful to see the effect of how one thing we might end up doing as a rider that we might perceive as being positive has a negative effect somewhere else. It can be valuable to see the whole. To see how it all works together. Hence this section on system analysis. It is our hope that because we can do so in a kind way that always respects and cares for the one who we are speaking of and that as we analyze and in a way sit in judgement, that we can look at the what and not attach our thoughts to the who, to the spirit of the one that needs your support as much as you needed the support and the lessons of the horse to find your way.

If what comes first is not true, what follows leads us other than where we need to go.
Level 2 Where in discussion we challenge each other and dwelve deep to understand what it means to be guide. Our responsibilities, and how we can do this better.
In discussion, we explore concept and ideas with an open mind and an open heart, seeing what new things we can learn together, and add to the world body of knowledge on horses and our work with them. Developing future material for those who travel here with us and for those who can maybe be shown how to look at things with a new perspective. This is a Level 3 Program where we continue to learn as we learn how to question everything. A Kjrsos Exclusive Program where we learn to challenge each other to progress beyond our own limitations for the benefit of everyone including our horses. Where we explore the questions that others still have yet to find.
A weekly question that we ask the riders to contribute to the discussion. Only available for the week, but might be returned to again in the future. Published every... Thursday?
