This three-day education workshop is offered to equine professionals and therapeutic riding instructors who work with or would like to work with participants with mental health and/or learning issues.

This specialized training is taught by a PATH Int’l certified mental health professional and an equine specialist. The workshop uses a combination of lectures, discussions, demonstrations, role-plays, and hands-on exercises with equines.

The workshop will provide an overview of Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) and Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP) programs, hands-on experience, and detail the role of the Equine Specialist within the therapy and education teams, particularly in maintaining the safety of all, including the equine partner.

Workshop Registration Requirements can be found on the PATH Int’l ESMHL webpage

Thank you for hosting us for the PATH certification. Your thoughtfulness and professionalism were really inspiring to me (well, to all of us, I'm sure!). The facility was beautiful and so meticulously kept. The horses were happy, healthy, and honest, and your herd was so diverse and vibrant! The riders, as you know, were one in a million - so sweet, and their families were so trusting and kind. And the volunteers........
