PATH International Mentoring

Do want to achieve a therapeutic riding instructor certification that is recognised not just in the UK but internationally?  Do you already work or volunteer at a therapeutic riding centre? Maybe you are already a riding instructor working with people who are able-bodied and simply want to branch out into therapeutic riding so that you can include clients with disabilities in your lessons. It may be that you are a very experienced horse person who is confident in their ability to coach but time-poor and therefore unable to attend the onsite elements of our UKRS accredited training course. If so, the PATH International Mentoring Option may be for you. It is also particularly useful for trainee instructors who don't live in the United Kingdom.
