Therapy Horse Handler Certification

SEVEN OAKS FARM MINIATURE THERAPY HORSES
IS DEDICATED TO TEACHING OTHERS AND SHARING YEARS OF KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERTISE.

Creating a handler certification as well as a horse registration program has been a long-time goal of ours. We want to create a standard of excellence across the world of miniature therapy horses and animal assisted activities. Over the past few years, we have been teaching those across the country to replicate what we do; and by using that same material - we are creating a certification program to carry that excellence throughout the industry.

There are still details to work out; but we wanted to share the ideas we have for those who want to stay in the loop during this process.

Here’s a little bit about Rob Sharkey, taken from his webpage. To learn more about his podcasts & radio show, click here.

 

THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE FARMER:

ROB SHARKEY

Rob Sharkey, known in digital circles as The Shark Farmer, is not your average Illinois grain farmer. He’s a disruptor who is unwavering in his ability to directly address controversial topics.

Rob tackles life, alongside his high school sweetheart, Emily, knowing four smaller sharks in their school will be impacted by their choices.

With the hog crash of ‘98 in the rearview mirror, a turn-key outfitting business thriving, and a handful of acres demanding more time than is warranted, the only logical step was to launch a necessary - yet stupendously groundbreaking - podcast.

His provocative style parallels a story-based structure, which resonates with thousands of weekly, global listeners. Juxtapose his rough-around-the-edges persona with an unmatched ability to listen and relate to those spanning generations, time zones, and the rural/urban divide, and you’ve found the formula for an under-the-radar and out-of-the-box communicator.

And, he’s just getting started.

 

The Winds of Change are Coming

IMG_2086.jpg

Just like all programs, change is inevitable. Change can be difficult, challenging and full of stress but it frequently results in good things. We believe good things are happening for our program. Seven Oaks Farm is in the process of revamping all our seminars. The change comes not out of habit or just because its the thing to do, but out of our dedication. We are fully committed to bringing you the best program we can when it comes to training your miniature therapy horses or handling your miniature therapy horses. Time and experience are an excellent teacher and we have had both. We're growing our program so that you can receive the top quality training you want and expect. We will be adding many more seminars to our yearly schedule so we can specifically meet your needs. Now theres even more than outstanding book work, and lectures and videos but actual hand on training.

 

We are preparing to add several seminars to our calendar this coming year so you can train right here on our farm with our experienced trainers and handlers. All the course material will be conveniently offered with our written materials but also in video lectures. This will allow you to easily read the material and watch the lectures at a speed  and time that is convenient for you. Once the material is completed you can join our team at our farm and spend many beneficial hours training as a handler and a trainer under the close supervision of our staff. You will be guided thru the entire process of a visit and be able to use your newly gained knowledge immmediately. We truly believe our new format will give you the hands on experience you've been asking for, offer you our expertise and increase your confidence in your skills. Keep looking for updates to our seminars and consider joining us this year.
