"Remote" Mentoring & Supervised Teaching Hours

What are they? How do they work?

Record your lessons from the comfort of your home arena using a smart phone or video camera. Upload lessons to YouTube, google drive, or a similar ‘sharing’ platform for review. This is a great change to also do a self-evaluation and compare it to professional feedback.

Receive detailed written feedback that highlights important points in your lessons as well as customized “challenges” to help you focus your efforts on key areas to develop or refine on your journey towards certification.

One-on-one phone or video calls to help you set goals, game-plan for further progress, and discuss your teaching reviews. We are also here to support you via text or email if a question comes to mind beyond your coaching time with us!

Testimonials

I found Saebra and Hoof Falls & Foot Falls through a PATH Center Certified Instructor and have been grateful ever since. From the moment of our first correspondence through the certification process she maintained the highest degree of professionalism and knowledge which became fundamental to me in reaching my goal of becoming a Certified PATH Therapeutic Riding Instructor.

Mentoring with Saebra was a fantastic experience and she completely prepared me for the journey of becoming a PATH Registered Level Therapeutic Riding Instructor. Over my mentorship, Saebra spent many hours guiding me though the administrative process, supervising my teaching hours and helping me grow as an instructor, and in progressing my own personal horsemanship and riding skills. I am very thankful to have mentored under Saebra. She did a wonderful job preparing me for my certification as a PATH instructor. I would highly recommend her as an instructor, a mentor, or for anymore looking to becoming more involved in PATH.

I was fortunate enough to have Saebra as my mentor for the PATH Therapeutic Riding Instructor certification. She wasn't an easy mentor, however, I feel she prepared me FULLY for the certification process. When she provided needed constructive criticism, she gave examples, and reasons for her points and explained everything. She was very patient and always willing to answer questions or help me through brain blocks.
