Hello cowboys and cowgirls! I have some exciting news to share with you! Recently, I went to a workshop to start the process for my ESMHL Certification. ESMHL stands for Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning. Once I finish my certification, it gives me the ability to run EAAT (equine-assisted activities and therapy) sessions in partnership with an educator and/or mental health professional.
A couple of weeks ago we had our Region 10 Conference. PATH International holds an International Conference each year but each region is also encouraged to hold their own conference. The travel, time, and monetary cost is significantly less for the region conferences which makes it more accessible for everyone in the industry. There are 11 regions in PATH, represented by geography. Region 10 includes Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, and Utah.
