Sharing our passion

Watching the successes of our students with our horses is one of our greatest joys. We’ve seen students come on crutches and learn to walk after riding our horses. Children who could barely speak, start to string together full sentences and ultimately, conversations. And people with little confidence begin to believe in themselves and have hope again after interacting with our horses. It is inspiring to see the transformations.

These accomplishments are only possible with a highly trained herd of horses and experienced team of instructors and equine specialists. Our instructors are some of the best in the business. Many have worked with horses their entire lives, riding, training and showing. And the majority of our team has been teaching therapeutic riding for 10 years, and many 20 years and more.

PATH Workshop and Certification, Aug. 6-9, 2020
Are you ready to become a PATH Certified Instructor? Fieldstone Farm will host a PATH International Registered Level Workshop and Certification on Aug. 6-9, 2020. At this time, registration is closed for this certification.

All PATH certification candidates are required to complete a PATH Workshop (either this one or a previous one) before becoming eligible to test for certification. The two-and-a-half-day workshop beginning on Aug. 6 will highlight topics key to therapeutic riding instruction and includes classroom instruction, role play and observation. It is an excellent source of information for all those involved with therapeutic riding and counts toward continuing education requirements.

Following the workshop, Fieldstone Farm will host a PATH Registered Instructor Certification on August 8 and 9. It will begin with candidate riding demonstrations and lesson assignments on the evening of August 8. The next day, candidates’ teaching skills are evaluated.  Candidates receive their results in a private interview the evening of August 9.
