Our debt of gratitude to the horses we work with and who give so much and so generously to us and to our clients cannot be overestimated or over emphasized. A fundamental aspect of this work is to to address and explore the care and consideration of our horses in our work but also the broader picture in terms of their behavior and their communication. I am committed to the safe, ethical and professional standards in the equine-assisted therapies industry. The Equine Skills Training for Mental Health Practitioners is a training specifically for developing a safe and profitable practice by reducing liability, medical issues, behavioral problems and high turnover of horses in your program. Join MEDICINE HORSE in equine skills training to learn how to:
- Understand horses needs, psychology, learning, social systems communication and behavior.

- Support and advocate your horses needs in an equine assisted mental health practice.
- Maximize the effect of equine assisted work through expert facilitation skills.

I work with other therapists and their clients, providing you the opportunity to gain insight and help your client develop a deeper sense self-awareness, increase client motivation and attendance; improve interpersonal skills and relationships; developing increased feelings of self-efficacy, empowerment, and resilience; and experiencing physiological benefits through contact with horses that enable clients to be more open and relaxed during treatment in an environment that is nurturing to both you and your client.
