Step 5

Step 5 – Advanced Mentorship Series

A minimum of three mentorships are required.

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. Mentors have very busy schedules with their full time businesses so please give them time to reply.  Mentors have certain horses they like to teach on, as students will be trimming, so plan on scheduling these mentorships well in advance.

Mentorships are subsidized by PHCP and will cost students $100 per day, paid directly to the mentor.

One of these mentorships can be taken at no cost. As and education benefit of membership, PHCP will pay the mentor for one mentorship at the advanced level.
note: New members must complete one paid mentorship before receiving this benefit.

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.
