 Therapeutic Riding Workshop &

Certification in Salmon, Idaho

From Joyce G. Scott, Executive Director, Whitewater Therapeutic 

& Recreational Riding Assn.

 

January 2013 issue

 

      Whitewater Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Association, a premier PATH-accredited therapeutic riding center, in Salmon, Idaho is hosting a PATH On-Site Workshop and Certification April 25-28, 2013.

      PATH is the new acronym for the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International, formerly known as NARHA.

      The workshop is the first step in the Registered Instructor certification process. Individuals who have previously completed the workshop and prerequisites for certification may register for the certification testing component which requires that the candidate successfully teach a class of individuals with disabilities and complete a riding pattern.

      Attendees at the Salmon OSWC may attend the workshop as a candidate or auditor or participate in the workshop and certification if the prerequisites for certification have been met. Individuals wanting to learn more about equine assisted activities and therapy (EAAT) are welcome to audit to OSWC.  

 

      PATH was formed to promote equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) for individuals with special needs. With over 3,500 certified instructors, more than 42,000 children and adults with physical, mental and emotional challenges find strength and independence through the power of the horse each year.

      PATH-Intl offers three levels of certification for therapeutic riding instructors: Registered, Advanced and Master. Therapeutic riding instructors who teach at PATH Centers are required to achieve one level of PATH Instructor Certification status. Registered instructors conduct a safe, basic equestrian lesson to individuals with disabilities.

      For more information on the OSWC contact Joyce Scott, Executive Director, Whitewater Therapeutic Riding (WTRRA), 208-469-0617
