PostHeaderIcon PATH International Certification Update

Hello! As many of you may now know, NARHA (formally known as North American Riding for the Handicapped Association) has changed their name to PATH (Professional Assoication of Therapeutic Horsemanship) International. You can find out more about this fabulous organization at http://www.pathintl.org/.

As you may know, I was going after my instructor certification with this organization this year. I attended the workshop and certification process, but I was not passed. I made an error in my teaching...I did not explain my riding skill that I was teaching to the students. I passed the riding test, but not the teaching portion.

The news isn't all bad. All I have to do is record myself teaching another lesson and send it in to PATH. I have to pay a resubmission fee, but it's not bad. Plus I had a really great time at the workshop and met lots of great people. :)

So, my certification has been set back a couple months, but don't worry...my name will be on Registered Instructor status soon! And I can't wait! :)
