"In Case you´re not a Doctor" Webinar

As Adaptive / Therapeutic Riding Instructors we are passionate about our riders, who are often challenged by various medical conditions. Being confronted with all these terminologies can often be overwhelming. 

 

But to develop our rider´s full potential we need a good understanding

  • of their diagnoses
  • how they are affected by that
  • how we can tailor our lesson to their fullest benefit. 

 

"In case you´re not a doctor" includes all but is not limited to the medical conditions listed in your CanTRA (Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association) medical file.

 

Clinician Esther Schlegel has developed 5 modules that you can book as a package or mix and match to fit your interests.
