We offer the following training model to participants: a four day theoretical and practical course followed
by an intensive 10-day integration into the work team of the organisation.
Our organisation has been dedicated to disseminating and developing the activity since 1989 and since then we have taught courses in different provinces within Argentina as well as abroad in countries such as Mexico, Cuba and Ecuador. We have also taught 75 courses at our centre, a space dedicated specifically to the activity with stables, covered arena, grass arena, classroom, ramps and accommodation for volunteers, with participants from all over the world attending. Countries of origin included: USA, Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile, Uruguay, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, France, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Holland, Israel and Australia.
2 work weeks from Monday to Friday 6 hours per day.
In the morning one hour of general maintenance of the stables and other facilities.
In the afternoon from 2pm to 7pm assistance at the programmed lessons.
The participant will be integrated into the work team:
Guided by specialist instructors participants will assist with all of the work related to the activity: preparation of the horses, training of other horses destined for the activity, general maintenance of the facilities and active participation in the different Equine Therapy sessions. During the program participants will have the opportunity to work with children, adolescents and adults with different conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Psychomotor delay, Autism as well as a wide range of syndromes.
Through this active integration, participants will be able to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge of horse handling as well as how to teach students with a wide range of different disabilities. Certificate: The participant will be presented with a certificate of training completion.
Please note the training will not be suspended in the event of adverse weather conditions as we have a covered arena for the lessons.
