Presented by: Megan Ellis
(read Megan’s bio here)

Many instructors grasp that what’s, how’s and why’s are an important teaching technique, but struggle to find the words for concise, descriptive, and participant-centered explanations in the moment. This webinar will provide a closer look at the what’s, how’s and why’s, provide examples of effective (and not-so-effective) instructions, and give attendees tools to develop their explanation techniques to more effectively maximize the benefits of therapeutic riding for their participants.

A lesson plan template will be included with registration and, a Q&A session will be incorporated for live attendees.  

Topics to include:

  • Improving your what’s, how’s and why’s
  • Task analysis
  • Meaningful why’s and when to use them (spoiler alert: always!)
  • Video examples
  • Practical application

Live webinars will include time for Q&A.
