More About Brown Pony Series by Rebecca Cook; Gabrielle Glodich; Lydia Kapeller
You love horses and you love therapy ... is it possible to combine those two loves in a fulfilling career? Yes, it is The information in this book is geared towards high school and college students, as well as practicing therapists, who are considering a career involving hippotherapy. Learn from those who are on the path working towards this career and from the author who has worked for over 20 years incorporating hippotherapy into her occupational therapy treatments. The book is organized into three sections ... Section One has four chapters ranging from a junior high school student's questions about a career of this type, to two college students pursuing a therapy degree and then to a licensed therapist pursuing the addition of hippotherapy to her therapy practice. Section Two contains 3 chapters all about horses, how do you choose and train a therapy horse, how do you fit saddles, and how do you prevent therapy horse burnout. Section Three consists of 3 chapters with the therapist in mind - how to provide a therapy internship, demystifying how hippotherapy is integrated into treatment planning and finally a "reality check" describing why therapist's offer hippotherapy even though it costs more to provide and is physically demanding. You won't want to miss the valuable and insightful information provided in each chapter. What books are available in the Brown Pony Series?
