About the Workshop & Certification

PATH Intl. Offers a self directed, multi-step educational process for those who are interested in becoming a Registered Instructor or just seeking to learn more about the equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) industry. The workshop provides instruction on lesson plan development, tack and equipment use, volunteer management, demo lessons, information about disabilities and therapeutic approaches.

The process to become a Registered Instructor is managed by the PATH Intl. office and may take several months to complete. Any questions you have about this process should be directed to the PATH Intl. Credentialing Event Representative, Amanda Walters, at (303) 452-1212, ext. 105 or awalters@pathintl.org. 

*For an additional fee, GAIT TRC offers Mentoring for Instructors in Training to provide guidance and practical, hands- on experience to those working to become Therapeutic Riding Instructors.*
