Step 5

Step 5 – Advanced Mentorship Series

A minimum of three mentorships are required.

Students will contact each mentor directly to schedule mentorships as needed.

The typical cost is $150 per day. This charge is set by and paid directly to the mentor.

One of these mentorships can be taken at no cost. As and educational benefit of membership, PHCP will pay the Mentor for a day.

One mentorship may be with a previous Mentor. The final mentorship in this series must be with a mentor the student has not worked with before.

Students will choose and contact their Mentors directly to schedule mentorships as needed.

These mentorships will include trimming on a variety of horses. The purpose of the advanced mentorships is to further improve the student’s skills, work more in-depth with pathologies and other areas of special interest. These mentorships will prepare the student to become a polished professional and to pass the PHCP certification.

The final mentor will determine the students readiness to complete the program. With their approval the student may post the step 7 Final Media Presentation. This mentor may recommend an additional mentorship before step 7, if they feel the student would benefit from it.

The Final Media Presentation must be posted within 0ne year of the final mentorship. If this deadline is missed the student will be asked to do another mentorship.
