AU$995


The Equine Taping Level Two course is formatted to attend directly after the EQ1700: Equine Taping Level One course. Upon completing the externships for both levels, the student will earn the Equinology® Equine Tape Practitioner (EETP) qualification.

At this advanced level, extra lab time is allowed for attendees to practice their skills on various clinical applications. Level Two will allow the instructor to cater to specific practitioner protocols, clinical applications, and conditions.

In the realm of taping techniques, correct tension and application require supervision by your instructor. We can not stress this enough. This can not be taught through video. In this two-day course, the student will be able to identify the areas of the horse that may require these taping methods beyond the basic level and address these areas.

COURSE OUTLINE:
Advanced Taping Clinical Applications, Theoretical Description and Discussion of Taping for Equines, Advanced Taping Labs, Case Discussions, Review of Level One Theory and Applications.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:
This course is designed for individuals who work professionally in the equine health industry to continue developing the skills and theory presented in the EQ1700 Level One Course.

The objectives for these courses are as follows:
• identify the areas of the horse that may require these taping methods beyond the basic level,
• list and identify contraindications to the use of taping methods,
• understand the advanced properties and uses of taping for horses,
• demonstrate the use of equine taping in regards to tendon/ligament and space correction techniques, functional and fascial correction techniques and lymphatic advanced correction techniques,
• utilize the muscle applications presented in the course and make positive changes for their client horses,
• integrate the knowledge of conformation and movement in regards to the realistic capabilities of the client’s horse and tactfully discuss these finding with them and
• interpret the response from the horse in regards to his adapted movement and redirected movement to gain insight on whether if they are improving or require veterinary intervention.

This two day course offers coursework with extra lab time for attendees to practice their skills on a variety of clinical applications. The course will allow the Instructor to cater towards specific practitioner protocols, clinical applications and conditions. Upon completion of this course and the externship for level one attendees will be eligible to request and take the exam to become a qualified Equinology® Equine Taping Practitioner (EETP) upon successful completion.
