Block 1 – Mentor: Vicky Devlin

Vicky DevlinBlock 1 Focus: The focus of your Case Studies will be on performing the techniques properly and becoming proficient in the practice of those techniques. In the first Block of case studies, in each write-up, it is important to articulate clearly each technique, creating a picture for the mentor, so as to ensure that you understand hand position, evaluation and proficiency in the practice. Be as specific as you can as to what exactly you did. Remember, you should consider the horse you are working on as a tool to learn. This is about you learning the techniques, so please pick easy horses to work on. It isn’t about “fixing” the horse. For these case studies, it’s not about the horse. We want you to really focus on using the techniques effectively. You will be focusing more about the horse in later blocks. This block of case studies is about you and your proficiency with the actual techniques. This is the foundation for the next two Blocks. A solid foundation in each technique is imperative.

Students must incorporate mentor feedback from the first session of a case study in the second session (i.e., if your mentor has suggested improvements in a technique or asked why you didn’t do a specific technique in the first session, you need to show that you did the technique differently or used the technique in the second session). If you don’t incorporate your mentor’s suggestions in the follow-up session, the session will not be accepted as part of the case study and you will have to do it over.

After completing your 10 cases studies (2 sessions per horse), please work with Vicky to find a Coach. After scheduling your Coaching Course, then register and pay for your Coaching Course online.

How to name your case studies
For tracking purposes, please save your case study and evaluation using the correct naming convention: DO NOT include spaces or special characters when naming your case studies and evaluations. Special characters are characters that are not letters or numbers, for example #, @, ( ), etc.

Please use this format when naming your case studies and evaluations:

Student’s last name (example: Williams)
Horse name (example: Roadie)
Case study # (example: 1)
Session # (example: 1)

First case study, part 1: “lastname-horsename1.1.doc” and “name-horsename1.1eval.pdf”
First case study, part 2: “lastname-horsename1.2.doc” and “name-horsename1.2eval.pdf”

Please try to save your case study in a word document. This makes it easier for Mentors to give feedback directly on your case study. Your evaluation can be uploaded as a pdf or jpg.
