Upcoming Seminars

If you have any interest in mini horse therapy, go out of your way to attend this outstanding seminar! Lisa Moad is a goldmine of knowledge and experience! She is practical, down-to-earth, open to all questions, generous of spirit in sharing everything she knows and has learned, and her passion is inspiring and contagious. I left the seminar confident about ways to improve what my minis and I are doing, and know if I run into an issue, Lisa will be available for guidance. Thank you, Lisa!”

Immersion Seminars

I am on information overload. The presentation was paced perfectly, Lisa and Shelby left adequate time for questions. The presentation was respectful of other methods and programs which added to the integrity of their program

The Immersion Seminars held only at our farm in Hamilton, Ohio allow us to use our well trained therapy horses and our very experienced handlers as part of the course. The cost for these seminars is $500 that includes hours of hands on training and participation in an actual visit.  The classes will be small so that each participant gets plenty of personal attention and the ability to practice what you have learned. The Immersion Seminar classes are first come, first serve and limited to 6 participants. This allows you to work with our horses and experienced handlers from Seven Oaks Farm for all the hands on portion. 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. The following dates have limited seating.

April 27th - 29th

June 22nd-24th

August 3rd -5th

October 5th - 7th

Both of these seminars, the "Intensive" and "Immersion" will contain all the same great training information. The Immersion Seminars held at our farm allow us to give the participants more hands on opportunity. You will be pleased with either course.
