Equine Counseling has its own guidelines, but CTHA certifies the therapy horse. In fact, CTHA helps owners and organizations with implementing and utilizing a set of standards through thorough documentation that protects the professionalism and credibility of these necessary programs. CTHA recognizes the third partner in equine counseling, the horse. This horse is a professional who works directly with people of all ages to promote growth in areas such as healthy risk taking and self-steem strategies.
