An Opportunity of a Lifetime

Do you have a love for horses? Do you have a passion for serving your community? Do you think about taking that cute little horse you own/saw on the internet for sale to bring joy to people in your area?

If you answered yes to any (or all!) of these questions, we may have the perfect opportunity for you. Sign up for an Intensive or Immersion Seminar. We will discuss everything you need to know if you want to start your own miniature therapy horse program.

What exactly will we cover?

We’ll start with choosing if becoming a nonprofit is best for you. Then move into how to choose and evaluate your horse. Next we’ll talk through volunteers, trainers & handlers in your program. Later on, you’ll hear us talk through some studies and techniques to train your horses. And of course, we’ll cover the A-Z of making a therapy horse visit. We’ll give you information about things you haven’t even thought of yet, and answer some questions you can’t find answers to.
