As a first year in the Speech Pathology master's program, I never in my wildest dreams expected to find a job that incorporates both horses and speech! The Intro To Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies online course helped me learn the basics of hippotherapy and equine assisted therapy in very detail-oriented slides that included news reports and integrated videos and pictures. My favorite part of the course, however, was the lab day at On Eagles' Wings farm. We gave a lesson to an adorable girl with cerebral palsy, and as soon as she was put on top of that horse, you could tell that she felt like she was in charge. The lesson was geared towards stretching activities and mind games. After graduating, I plan to explore my options in the hippotherapy field, thanks to this course! Keep in mind that you don't have to be a speech pathology student for equine assisted therapy and hippotherapy to be relevant to you. Anyone in a rehabilitation or therapy field could find this class beneficial!”
