I have received so many emails asking me about equine massage therapy schools that I have decided to add a

I am a little concerned about the equine training
programs that claim that you can be a certified
equine therapist in as little as 3 to 9 days. I do
believe you will be certified - as all that certification
really is is the school giving you a certificate saying
you passed their course. It does not really mean
much of anything. I could actually certify people if I
wanted to. But, I do not believe that you can be a
qualified equine therapist in so short of a time.
If you are interested in learning equine therapy to benefit your own horses, these programs may be just fine for
you. But - If you would like to have equine therapy as your career, I believe that you would need to go to one of
the more thorough, more extensive programs whose goal is to really teach you to become a qualified therapist
and not just a shorter program who is interested in just turning out a quantity of graduates.
If you are truly interested in equine therapy as a career, you could also consider doing what many people do
(including myself) which is to go to a human school and get continuing education in equine therapy modalities.
With that said, let's get to the list. This is obviously not an all inclusive list - it is just the equine therapy schools
that I am aware of.
Disclaimer: Being included in this list is not in any way a recommendation or endorsement for any of the
schools. This is simply a list.
