    I did my training as an equine physiotherapist at DIPO and was / am very satisfied.
    At the advanced training courses, too, where you meet graduates from a wide variety of training centers, you can tell that you are in a very good position.
    I can't say anything specifically about ZePo, nor about osteo training at DIPO.
    Otherwise, if there are any questions, please feel free to try to answer them

    @janine h. Thank you
    DIPO seems to have a very good reputation. However, since I wanted to do Osteo and that is only possible there with prior training, I have now decided on ZePo.

    Yeah yeah Most of the information can also be found on the DIPO website. I just checked there again because a lot has changed since my exam:

    There are 8 weekend seminars Sat + Sun, 2 weekend seminars Thu-Sun, one week course Mon-Fri and a final exam. So unfortunately only about 30 days of attendance time, which corresponds to the normal average of the other institutes.

    However, these days of attendance are kept fairly tight (theory and practice balanced) and are led by qualified lecturers. I can only speak of the Dülmen location, but I assume that it is no different at the other training locations, especially since some lecturers teach at several locations.

    In addition to the DIPO physio lecturers, we also had Dr. med. vet. Helmut Ende (some may know him from the walk-on horse on the Equitana), Dr. med. vet. Katrin Heipertz (training apprenticeship / performance diagnostics), Dipl. Ing. Ottfried Lengwenat (well known as a feeding specialist), Dr. med. vet. Peter Stelzer (specialist in teeth), Dr. agr. Cathleen Wenz (including behavior therapist at the Hochmoor veterinary clinic) and a few more. In addition, we were allowed to visit Ingrid Klimke one day, watch her training and then punch her

    In addition to physiotherapy, the content also includes feeding, first aid, acupressure, stress point massage, physical therapy, neurology, training theory, performance diagnostics, ethics, teeth, etc.

    The material of the face-to-face days must then be reworked at home in self-study, everything is relevant to the exam. It makes sense to try to form a study group with some of them.

    It's not that easy because there is no precise training plan. The individual blocks are all booked separately. Some orders have to be observed, but otherwise you are flexible and can adapt the training to your own life. In Dülmen, each course takes place on average twice a year. You can also attend courses at other training locations, so that you have even greater flexibility.

    The training lasts between 1 year and 3 years (the training should not be longer). In addition to the advantages, this has the disadvantage that you are not a fixed group. Of the approximately 25-30 participants in the first course I attended, we were only four who attended the subsequent courses in the same order and on the same dates.


    The training costs, including the exam, are around 5200 euros and include scripts, lunch and drinks. In addition, there is travel and accommodation (if you cannot / do not want to commute).

    I think it's important to mention that although the training is a good basis, it also requires a lot of willingness to learn, practice and further education in order to be able to work successfully (in the horse's sense).
    Each training weekend (also outside the DIPO) costs an average of between 300 and 500 euros (plus travel expenses and accommodation).
    Until you have training costs and further education back in, you had a lot of horses between your hands. But that is exactly what is important in order to gain sufficient experience and thereby become better.

    Wow madness
    5200 €
    Who can seriously afford that?
    I recently attended an information event on the subject of a riding therapist
    Super interesting but also incredibly expensive.

    I always find things like that a shame, because as a normal wage earner and with a normal life (i.e. not living at home or getting married or having been sure at 12 that you want to do that and therefore saved a lot) it is hardly possible to get such an education do.

    Yes, it is expensive. I (normal earner, normal life with a husband who also earned normal income, chronically ill horse, chronically ill dog, house / property and car) could only afford that when I was in my mid-30s and of course I had to cut back on my time.
    Like most of the others from my courses. I could not find the people you described there, or only in a negligibly small number.

    Then we are probably starting to save now

    Above all, I can only strongly advise against anyone who really counts on it financially to be successful.
    Osteopaths and co are springing up like mushrooms - at our stable with 30 riders there are 4 who have done something like this (and who have no customers apart from their own horse) and countless others in the area.
    Just for fun and self-interest is ok, anyone who seriously insists on a return on the money invested and expects financial success has a high chance of a rude awakening
