The Horsemanship for Equine Therapy certificate program is a result of the organic growth Carolyn’s lifelong work of helping humans build solid foundations for partnering with their horses toward any equestrian pursuit. Currently, the fastest growing part of the equestrian industry are equine assisted activities and therapy programs. Carolyn has been teaching, training, and coaching people how to partner with their horses and step into a leadership role without the struggle of power and control for over 40 years. As a professional horsewoman, and trainer, she originated the term “Liberty” work in the 1970's.. She developed a method of training horses without force or fear that creates a solid foundation for all equestrian pursuits.
As more and more horses are being asked to take on the role of “equine therapist” it is raising some basic questions. How are we supporting the horse in their new role of therapist instead of a recreational/sport partner? How do you train a horse for working with the world of healing emotional and mental health concerns? Can any horse do healing and personal growth work? How do you ensure physical safety for all involved in equine therapy sessions – horse and humans? The Resnick Method takes the lessons our horses teach us about ourselves from self-realization into a coaching model that honors the true power of WHY horses.
