Attention: OT's and Speech Pathologists! Are you looking for a fun, different, stimulating environment in which to do therapy?
Horsefeathers Therapeutic Riding, NFP is looking for a part time Occupational Therapist and Speech Pathologist to do hippotherapy at Horsefeathers Center in Lake Forest, IL. Hippotherapy (from the Greek word "hippo", meaning horse) is therapy that is done using the horse as a treatment tool.
You do not need to have horse experience in order to do this. Horsefeathers will provide you with the necessary safeguards, controlled environment, and fully trained support team to meet your needs. Hours are flexible, and the work often more satisfying than you may find in a typical clinical setting.
