God has recently begun opening my eyes to the world of therapy. I've always thoughts that therapy would be a very great, rewarding job to get into, but I never looked into it past that. I have worked as the head volunteer of a therapeudic riding facility for years, and I absolutely love working with the children there.
My question to you guys, is how do I get into that? My dream is that I be able to work as a therapist (PT or OT) for a while and begin saving up, and eventually become head therapist somewhere, and last- begin my own therapeudic riding facility. I have no idea how to go about that though, in terms of schooling, college, and what it would cost me/how long it would take. I don't even know what college I would need to go to at this point! So shoot me with whatever you know. Do you need certain certifications? Would I need extra schooling/certification to go from PT or OT to solely hippotherapy or therapeudic riding? What are your experiences with the job? Pros and cons? I'm all ears!
