Course - Fundación Cordobesa de Equinoterapia.
“76th Theoretical and Practical Equine Therapy Course" - Spanish
Dates: 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th of August 2017.
Teacher Verónica Martínez Achával, President of the Fundación Cordobesa de Equinoterapia.
Engineer Juan Manuel Ramallo, horse riding instructor, Argentinian Equestrian Federation.
We have taught over 75 courses in a number of different countries and share with participants 27 years of experience in Equine Therapy. Over the 4 days we will demonstrate theoretically and practically, the methods we have pioneered with the backing of the medical community. In particular we will show participants how to use the specialist double riding saddle we have developed for Hippotherapy. The saddle is the first in the world with two sets of stirrups for both the instructor and the student and is indispensable for an Hippotherapy session.
Participants will have the opportunity to meet and work with our students. Please note that as we have a covered arena this will go ahead despite possible adverse weather conditions.
We provide advice on all aspects of the activity including: training, materials, equipment, horses, and any other concerns participants may have.
All participants will also receive our Equine Therapy book – The Martínez Achával concept and a certificate of completion.
