Fieldwork and Certification
Upon completion of the Equine Specialist or MMES course, participants will be given instructions for completing the MMES Fieldwork requirements. Fieldwork assignments are designed to ensure that participants gain practical skills in applying the Masterson Method on a wide variety of horses, including therapy and non-therapy horses.
Fieldwork assignments are designed to ensure that students gain practical skills in applying The Masterson Method on a wide variety of horses, including standard working horses and those serving in EAAT programs. Fieldwork will be standardized for all students and, as may be relevant, may be individualized to further meet the needs and enhance the competence of each participant. Students document their work sessions with horses in their local area, including identifying any challenges which arose and what they have learned and receive written feedback for consideration. When the fieldwork phase is complete, the student will complete an electronic final exam to assess knowledge of the Masterson Method and its use in EAAT settings and their overall readiness for certification.
