Equine Assisted Therapy Experiential Workshop

Equine Specialist Jan Culp; Coordinator: Dr. Cheryl Wolf
Culp Farm, 1089 Pleasant Grove Rd, Bowling Green KY 42101
Saturday, November 2021; 10am - 12pm

This can be a transformative experience for you and a potentially beneficial experience for your clients. Jan is opening up her farm to help you all get an introduction to this type of therapy. The Culp Farm is a beautiful 30 minute drive northeast from campus so carpooling is recommended. The horse arena is covered but all dirt, so boots or old shoes and casual clothes is recommended; you will get the opportunity to touch and work with the horses. Learn more about equine-assisted therapy at EAGALA.org. This event is free but please register online to let us know you are coming!
