Katherine Penner is certified by the British Columbia College of Equine Therapy. She graduated with honours at the top of her class, receiving the Top Student Award for 2009. The two year program is one of the longest and most extensive courses available. It covers all aspects of the horse’s experience, so that graduates are able to identify root causes of issues. They are then trained in multiple modalities, in order to correct these imbalances.
In addition, Katherine also earned her Certified Saddle Fitter designation at The Saddle Fit and Reflocking School in South Carolina. This six month course improved upon her knowledge of saddle fit, as well as gave her the skills to reflock or convert any make of saddle.
