Making the most of your visit
Our seminars are very popular and have been given great reviews by those who have attended. Since so many of you have asked for addition dates we have decided to put together a very special set of classes that will be held only here in Ohio.
We are offering a specially designed class that will combine Level 1 and Level 2 with hours of hands on training and participating in an actual visit. These seminars will be held here at our farm in Hamilton, Ohio. The classes will be small so that each student gets plenty of personal attention and the ability to practice what you have learned. The classes are limited to 6 students and you will be able to work with our horses for all the hands on portion, you will also be able to experience our specific training methods for both horses and handlers. While you are here with us we will do an actual visit, you will be able to experience first hand what its like with our trained handlers by your side. You will walk thru all the steps necessary for preparing the horses for a visit, going on a therapy visit and a post visit evaluation. Our desire is for you to get a full experience in animal assisted therapy and gain as much experience as you can.
Miniature Therapy Horses Level 1
This portion of our seminars is key to understanding our philosophy to our program and how we approach all the training we do for horses and handlers. It is also created as a road map to help you walk thru the maze of question you might have in regards to insurance, setting up a visit, becoming a 501C3, training your horse, choosing a horse, becoming a handler, finding good products and a whole host of other needs. The Level 1 seminar will include a study guide you can take home that will contain pages and pages of all the information discussed in the lectures. The guide will allow you to follow along and take notes as well. we cover Level 1 Friday evening and into Saturday.
Miniature Therapy Horses Level 2
This course is designed to take all the information you gained in Level 1 and put it into practice. This portion of the seminar is hands on and will walk you thru the steps of choosing a horse, training your horse and preparing for the different levels of registration. It will also give you practical guidance when it comes to handling your horse for various types of visits. Both of these courses are key to our program and build upon each other. Taking these seminars will allow you to register your horse through our program free of charge. Level 2 will be covered Saturday with a visit for you to participate in and ending Sunday with more training and one on one training.
Dates for Seminars Level 1 &2 Hamilton, Ohio

Thank you so much for your interest and for your encouraging words. we also hope that if you feel that what we are doing with our horses is a worthwhile program that you would consider donating to our programs. The money we receive is used to care for the horses and help fund all the visits we make to schools, nursing homes, children's centers and other public events.
We are always very thankful for our volunteers, friends and supporters. We are especially grateful that Four Corners Church had the desire to walk along side us and provide financial support to our program. Four Corners Church is located in West Chester, right off of I-75, they seeks to serve the same communities we serve. Their mission is "Real Love Now" The church and its people have served us for many years with providing volunteers and helping us get our name out in the community. They are friends to our program and we couldn't be more proud to partner with them. Their generous donation will allow us to meet two of our goals, serving hospice patients and special needs children. We would like to say a very big thank you to Four Corners Church and their continue support and faith in Seven Oaks Farm Miniature Therapy Horses. Together we are serving others, bringing joy and offering hope.
