PATH Intl. Certified Workshop and Certification

June 7 - 10, 2018

This workshop is for any PATH Intl. member who is considering becoming a PATH Intl. Registered Instructor, or who would simply like to improve their therapeutic riding instruction skills or learn more about the field of Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies. In addition, we are offering a Registered
Level Certification on the last day of the workshop.

Participants will gain the knowledge of the basic skills and information utilized by successful entry-level therapeutic riding instructors. The two-and-a-half-day workshop will cover such topics as teaching techniques, task analysis, class structure, lesson plans, various types of disabilities, horse
analysis, equipment, mounting and dismounting and volunteers. The instructor workshop provides participants the opportunity to apply the knowledge in role-play situations and hands-on sessions.

This workshop may be audited. Please note that auditing will not fulfill the Registered Instructor Certification requirement.
