Event Details

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 waitlist 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, as well as equine professionals seeking CEU hours with PATH, Int.**

This course is not exclusive to therapists intending to work with Manes and Miracles, however, we do require that therapists desiring to partner with Manes and Miracles must receive training on working with equines and the barn environment relative to their field.  This course or verification of completion of an AHA or another course regarding the implementation of equines in your field will be required.

Taught by the founder of Hoof Falls & Footfalls, the course will be spread out over three days as follows:

Friday, October 4 from 1:00 PM- 8:00 PM 

Saturday, October 5 from 9 AM- 3:00 PM

Friday, October 11 from 1 PM- 8:00 PM
