HIGH Certification Clinic at Sweetbeau Horses

Sweetbeau Horses is offering the opportunity for therapists and anyone interested in experiencing the healing power of horses, a certification course for people to practice or host their own Horse Inspired Growth and Healing courses. Through the course, HIGH participants can explore the understanding of the incredible power of horses healing humans.
