Update:  The center has made a decision to not offer academic internships                                                for the 2015-2016 academic year. We know this may be disheartening to those                                      of you that had hoped to join us next year. However our practice continues to grow                                  and expand which we hope will provide even more learning opportunities.
                                   We will continue to offer our 
5 & 10 week paid internships throughout the year. 

      Whether you are a student seeking an academic internship or someone considering a career change we have internships that can give you experience in all aspects of equine assisted therapy and equine assisted learning. You will have the opportunity to be totally immersed in the day to day operations of an established center and what it takes to start and maintain a competent, ethical practice. We are approved by Johns Hopkins University, Loyola University and University of Baltimore as a site providing internships for graduate level students.

      It is our goal to bring EAP/EAL to the community by helping others to establish themselves as competent practitioners in the field. Our experience has shown that with perserverance and practice this can become the most rewarding work you will ever experience. We practice the EAGALA model and believe that because of the powerful nature of this modality it is necessary to have a certified team of an Equine Specialist and Mental Health Professional in the arena at all times.  

Academic Students:

    If you are attending a college or university other than Johns Hopkins or Loyola University please speak with your advisor to start the process of site approval. Once your college or university approves us as your site you will be required to have two interviews with our staff (horses included). Our center receives many inquires each year for internship placement so we are looking for students that are excited about this modality and its relevance to the therapeutic community.
