Summer Specialized Assessments and Programs

PARDS is very excited to have Esther Schlegel with us to offer specialized programs during the summer. Esther spent a year with PARDS while achieving her volunteer hours for her CANtra certification. Her warm caring nature captured the hearts of many of our riders. Esther is a German Occupational Therapist Bsc., with Hippotherapy (AHA), a Therapeutic Riding Instructor (CanTRA) and is an Instructor of Beginners in English Riding (Equine Canada).

Esther has lived, gained her education and worked in Germany, the Netherlands, USA and Canada before starting her own practice which she runs with competence and lots of heart. Besides treating clients in her practice, she enjoys teaching Occupational Therapy students at the Birkenfeld Social and Medical Sciences College (Sozialfachschule Birkenfeld), in Germany as well as offering clinics regarding various topics related to Occupational Therapy, Hippotherapy and Therapeutic Riding.
