Make 2024 the Year You Get NL Certified

Natural Lifemanship Certification is about more than deepening your learning. It’s about getting the support you need so that you personally can thrive in your life and in this field and so that you can better serve your clients.

There are four steps to get certified, and all of them are on sale until November 29th!

Jump to the step most relevant to you — or if you’re new to NL Certification start at the top!

How Do Vouchers work?

If you’d like to take advantage of the sale price on Fundamentals and Intensive (available November 21 – 29), you’ll notice that we have announced dates for 2024, but we haven’t yet opened registration.

Here’s how vouchers work:

  • Buy a voucher for the training of your choice and get the sale price when you complete your purchase before November 29, 2023.
  • When registration opens for the training you’ve selected, you’ll be the first to know and we’ll notify you via email so you can sign up.
  • Your voucher will be good for any of the dates we offer for that training throughout 2024, so select whatever date works best for you! For example, if you purchase a Fundamentals voucher, but don’t want to use it until the last session that starts in September 2024, no problem! Generally, registration for each training opens two weeks before the training begins.


Take the Fundamentals of NL

Start by taking the Fundamentals of Natural Lifemanship to learn the principles underlying everything we do.

Fundamentals of NL is one of our signature trainings, designed to teach you the powerful process we’ve developed for creating deep, connected relationships based on our unique principles.

When will Fundamentals be offered in 2024?

  • January 22 – March 22, 2024
  • April 15 – June 14, 2024
  • September 9 – November 8, 2024

What’s the sale price?

Until November 29th, take $100 off our “Jumpstart Bundle” option for NL Fundamentals.

Please note that there are three different options for the Fundamentals of NL, but the Jumpstart option is the one we recommend for anybody seeking NL Certification and it’s the only one on sale.

Plus, when you sign up for Fundamentals Jumpstart, it also includes the annual certification fee which includes one year of NL membership, a practitioner listing on our website, and the CE hours needed to maintain your certification. 


“The emphasis on the somatic – on the body. It’s really important to me personally and I’ve seen how it affects my horses… What does it mean to be present in the moment? Everybody talks about it, but Natural Lifemanship teaches it and gives you amazing skills to have a somatic experience.”

~ Cheri Trousil, PT


NL Intensive

Next, you’ll take the NL Intensive, where you sink so much deeper into the nuance and art of this work.

The NL Intensive is taken after the Fundamentals when you’ve gained a solid foundation for using the Natural Lifemanship principles. In the Intensive, you’ll go deeper into your personal growth and embody your unique and powerful practice to build on your relationship with yourself, your clients, and your horses.

When will the Intensive be offered in 2024?

  • March 25 – July 12, 2024
  • August 12 – December 6, 2024

What is the sale price?

Until November 29th, take $100 off our “Core” option for NL Intensive. 

Please note that there are two different options for the NL Intensive, but the Core option is the one we recommend for anybody seeking NL Certification and it’s the only one on sale.

“In my relationship with my own horse, I had no idea how much I was missing in what she’s been telling me…I’m just blown away by the NL Intensive.“

~ Leigh Ashley, M.A., LMFT


Sign up for Certification

This part is the easiest of all – sign up for Certification.  

When you sign up, you’ll also get an NL membership included with your registration at no additional fee. There are a ton of benefits to NL members, but of particular importance is the hours and hours of online learning that can be used to hone your skills and maintain your NL Certification. 

What’s the sale price?

When you sign up for certification, use the coupon code Cert76 to save $76 off your annual certification fee. 

NOTE: When you sign up for the Fundamentals Jumpstart, the annual Certification fee is already included. So if you’re signing up for Jumpstart today, you do not need to sign up for Certification as well.


“This was not my first certification, but it was by far the most comprehensive and personally meaningful. The NL team has depth, compassion and are 100% committed to the success of both the horse and the student.”

~ Martha McNiel, LMFT, TRI, TDI, TSMHL, NL Certification Student



Complete Personalized Consultations

The final step is to complete personalized consultations

Consultations are the LIFEBLOOD of the certification process. You get individualized guidance and support from seasoned professionals as it relates to your unique clients, horses, facilities, and funding sources. 

What’s the sale price?

When you purchase consultation packages before November 29th, you’ll reduce the  cost per consultation from $175 to $150 each, saving $25 per consult!

Package of 8 Consultations for $1200 (regular price $1400)

Package of 4 Consultations for $600 (regular price $700)

“The quality and depth of the courses and consultations is truly transformative. My certification represents significant professional growth in the field of equine assisted psychotherapy, an increased capacity to partner with others, and the impact NL has had on my own journey of healing.”

~ Marla Lipscomb, MSW, LCSW, NL Certification Student

Taking Principles into Practice

Also on sale through November 29th is our course, Taking Principles Into Practice, which includes a carefully curated selection of pre-recorded Group Consultation sessions. This is one additional way to meet the Certification requirements for group consultations.

Taking Principles into Practice is a completely virtual, self-paced, online course, available to those who wish to deepen their understanding of this process and lay the foundation for presenting your own cases during future group consultation sessions.

What’s the sale price?

Taking NL Principles into Practice will be offered at $299 (regular price $375) through November 29th – a savings of $76.

“These groups really breathed life into the NL process and principles for me! I was also able to connect deeply with like-minded professionals doing the same work––the connection with these amazing people continues today. These are my go to people to support me in this powerful work.”

~ Amy Nistor, LMFT
