The therapist will learn to identify and convey to the horse handler the necessary skills required to produce quality movement when leading, lunging or long lining the hippotherapy horse in patient treatment and understand the need to educate and train staff and/or volunteers who will be working with the therapy horse. Understanding the requirements to maintain a safe, effective and successful clinic program
