The In Hand Therapy Course
A zest of classicism and a large body of science.
A one year course of Corrective Biomechanics.
In Hand Therapy Course (IHTC) is designed for therapists anxious to further their knowledge as well as riders/trainers interested in extending their ability to reeducate horses and prevent injuries. IHTC provides both, knowledge and the practical application of knowledge.
Three monthly studies, (twelve months) – "In Hand Technique” – "Equine biomechanics and corrective biomechanics” – "Case study”
The In Hand Technique is the zest of classicism.
-The technique is inspired from General Decarpentry's Academic Equitation and updated to actual knowledge of the equine physiology.
-This specific in hand technique allows accessing and influencing the horse's vertebral column mechanism. (Most limbs kinematics abnormalities originate from improper functioning of the horse's thoracolumbar spine).
-Monthly instructive videos teach first the basic and then, the many subtleties of the technique. (It does not take long to teach the basics, however, there is a lot more to this technique than walking next to the horse performing some movements. The in hand education focuses on achieving sophisticated control of the horse's vertebral column mechanism.)
The continuing education series (biomechanics) explains,
- How the horse's physique is designed to work, (functional horse).
- Kinematics abnormalities leading to injuries
