Certification in Hippotherapy is provided by the American Hippotherapy Certification Board (AHCB).
The AHCB works collaboratively with the Professional Testing Corporation® (PTC) who administers the exams biannually.
It is the on-going commitment of the AHCB to provide candidates for both the Hippotherapy Certification and Hippotherapy Clinical Specialist exams the most accurate, relevant, and up-to-date measurement tool possible in the course of the validation processes. This is achieved by the AHCB which is comprised of members representing the professions of occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech/ language pathology. Each voluntary member of the board has attained their HPCS and has demonstrated on-going competency in the field. The AHCB works tirelessly with the Professional Testing Corporation of New York, to ensure the validity, fairness, and accuracy of all questions put forth on the examinations. – AHCB
