October 5 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$375
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.
