Curriculum Training Courses
Become an approved provider
Would you like to learn how to deliver one of our effective, tried and tested programs but don't have time to travel? You can learn to provide the Life Hack Program from the comfort of your own home! Our Zoom course with accompanying online learning modules offers everything you need to begin offering this exciting equine assisted education program at your own centre. Led by a Board Certified Equine Interaction Professional and Qualified Teacher with a Masters Degree in Education, it will provide not only a practical overview of the program but also the opportunity to learn from industry professionals with decades of combined experience.
If you'd like to provide the Penytrip or Alpha Mare Program, a 5 day training retreat at our Scottish Borders centre will equip you with everything you need to go on and run one of our successful projects in your own setting. You can learn the equine assisted program of your choice inside out through theory lessons with the author and practice sessions with our herd of experienced therapy horses. You get to immerse yourself completely in the process, network with fellow learners and even work with real clients where possible.
