Many OTs are afraid of the business side of using hippotherapy

Being in the arena with the clients and the horses is the fun part! Do you have the time to focus on your clients and a built in business support network?

No? If you are like many OT practitioners just getting started, you may be wondering if you find clients first, order evals, quit your day job or start with finding the best horses.

It doesn't have to be hard or complicated. You can start an ideal business that puts your goals first, while supporting amazing clients in your local area.

Barn Raising will help you move from fear to action to realize your dream.

You can take your time and figure it out by yourself- many OT practitioners do this.


You can get support and guidance to make your ideal career happen. Imagine yourself creating your marketing with examples and templates, partnering with a horse facility or getting your horses ready for their new discipline, attracting the right clients for your skill set and being in control of your own income goals. With a self-paced course you can move at your own speed and schedule your personalized Zoom coaching calls when YOU need them most.

What our previous Barn Raisers have said

Physical Therapist

When the class began, I had nothing to speak of. Now, I have an LLC, tax ID, and have made connections in the community to utilize facilities and horses to see patients when I am ready to begin marketing (which I now have an outline of a plan for).

Founding Member Therapist

I just want to say thank you for being so helpful and informative. This has been well worth the money to this point. I feel more confident in my ability to pursue my dream!!

Occupational Therapist

I think the most helpful part is Gina's insight on her recordings and live classes. From her experience as a business owner, horse person, and OT, she is able to offer very practical advice and pose thought provoking questions that really helped me feel more prepared. Gina is able to encourage in a way that inspires confidence and is very motivating.

Taking the first steps requires action.

Getting started in your own business is priceless. You gain control of your own career path, scheduling, income generation and more.

So, doesn't your business need you to take the first steps?

Spots are limited for the Self-paced course with personalize support calls and a waiting list will be formed when these spots are filled.
