One of our goals when starting our therapy program was to develop a training and registration program for miniature therapy horses that is accepted nationally. We are excited to announce our new certification program for both miniature therapy horses and their handlers! Using the materials from The Lisa Moad Methodology (Miniature Therapy Horses 101 and 102) we have created our dream of a nationally recognized certification and registration program.
