We are excited to share that we will be offering the American Hippotheraphy Association, Level 1 Course Thursday, January 18, 2018 – Sunday, January 21, 2018.
Coordinating Faculty: Carol Huegel, PT, HPCS
This 4 day course is an overview of the principles of hippotherapy, designed for therapists (PT, OT, SLP, PTA, COTA, and SLPA) interested in utilizing hippotherapy in their practice. The first day emphasizes the horse, and the importance of the quality of the horse’s movement working in treatment. Using experiential non-mounted activities, the attendee will learn to interpret the body language of the horse, groom, tack and lead the therapy horse, recognize desirable conformation, soundness, movement quality, gaits, and understand training, conditioning and humane treatment of the therapy horse.
