October 5 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

EVENT DETAILS
The demand for therapy services incorporating equines, equine movement, and the equine environment in treatment is continually increasing in the East Valley. At Manes and Miracles alone there is a wait-list of over two dozen special needs children desiring to receive their OT, PT, or Speech therapies with these four-legged angels!
 
With that in mind, Manes and Miracles has partnered with Hoof Falls & Footfalls to present “Safe and Professional Partnering with Equines”. This 3 day, 15-hour course teaches the fundamentals of successfully incorporating the use of equines and the barn environment to PT, OT, and SLP professionals.
 
Taught by the founder of Hoof Falls & Footfalls, the course will be spread out over three days as follows:
  • Friday, October 4 from 1:00 PM- 8:00 PM
  • Saturday, October 5 from 9 AM- 3:00 PM
  • Friday, October 11 from 1 PM- 8:00 PM
 
Participants will learn:
-Why the horse is such a valuable partner
-Safety around equines
-Basic horse handling and grooming
– Horse and rider biomechanics
– Equine conformation and movement
– How equipment impacts the horse and human
– Horse/rider/ equipment pairing
– Safe, mechanically sound mounting and dismounting
– Incorporating volunteers
– Therapy vs. therapeutic

Each day will cover 5 hours of course work and a one-hour meal break. One meal will be provided each day during that break. Attendees of all 15 hours will receive a certificate of course completion.
