ISNCHP Student Training with Paige Caskey


Step 3 - Sequencing Clinic

Sequencing is an extremely important foundational part of your training. It includes efficient tool and equipment management during trimming; effective and humane horse handling and communication skills; and optimal body positioning of the horse, trimmer and (if participating) handler. Sequencing, in other words, includes those strategically important things that we do that are supportive of the trimmer’s efforts to trim the horse. Sequencing in so important in its own right that it is taught separately from trimming until such time that the student is sufficiently skilled and prepared to bring both together. This clinic may be offered with Step 2 by clinicians or as stand alone clinics. This clinic is a prerequisite to advancing to Step 4. It may be taken at any time after Step 1 is completed. Fees are set by clinicians and may vary by the number of students participating and the number of actual training days per student.


Private "Sequencing Clinic" days can be scheduled with me to meet Step 3 requirements.


Requirements: All students must have completed previous ISNHCP steps 1-2. Students must bring all required tools and equipment.

We will start each day in Trevor, WI and head to various locations to work with a variety of horses.

Step 5 - Field Mentorships

​Following successful completion of the Step 4 Live Horse Trim Clinic, and approval by the ISNHCP of the Step 4 Video Evaluation, students will move forward to the Step 5 Field Mentorship phase of their training program. Field Instructors will take you into the field to trim on client, or in some cases their own, horses. All students must initially complete at least (a minimum) 10 field mentorships (10 days of training on live horses) with at least three different AANHCP Certified NHC Field Instructors, and no more than four mentorships with one Field Instructor. Step 5 is an extremely important phase of your training as it exposes you to real life situations -- dealing with scheduling, clients, and horses you know nothing about. Step 5 encompasses all that you've learned to date and is the final preparation before you take the field alone as an ISNHCP student practitioner.
