Dear Friends and Volunteers of NTRC,
As many of you may know we are a PATH Premier Accredited Center, and that requires us to only have PATH certified instructors. And while you see our classes that are mounted and provide the many physical benefits to our riders, did you know that there are PATH instructors strictly dedicated to mental health? They are called ESMHL’s and provide mental health services in unmounted lessons. And like our Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors, they are in high demand! So, we are turning to folks who believe in and love what we do to possibly consider becoming an ESMHL - and that is you!
On February 15th, 2020 from 12:00p-3:00p, our resident ESMHL (Equine Specialist in Mental Health Learning) Julia Kovac, will provide a FREE inservice for anyone interested in learning more about Equine Assisted Mental Health, the benefits to those experiencing acute or chronic mental health issues, and how you can become certified to provide those services. This will be a hands on learning experience at our farm located at 13608 Henson Road, Holt, Mo 64048. Light snacks, coffee and hot chocolate will be provided as well as printed materials needed for the class. CEU certificates will be provided to those who would like them.
