When you hear PATH Intl., what comes to mind? An organization whose instructors focus on equine-assisted activities? An organization setting high standards of safety for its field? An organization whose centers provide therapeutic horsemanship to those with physical, cognitive and emotional challenges?
Yes to all.
PATH Intl. also provides continuing education for its credentialed professionals and center staff through its annual conference. A broad spectrum of session content is needed each year to offer a rich and rewarding experience for all attendees at the PATH Intl. Conference.
At this time PATH Intl. is conducting a call for abstracts for its annual conference, which attracts hundreds of attendees from all over the country every year. Do you have horse knowledge? Are you a vet or a farrier? Do you have knowledge of how to better care for horses, whether it’s through vet care, feeding a senior horse, euthanasia, how to tell when a vet is needed, how to evacuate horses to safety, horse equipment, innovative studies on equine—the list is long.
Come share your expertise with professionals who are thirsty to learn. The deadline for abstract submission is March 3. Visit https://www.pathintl.org/path-intl-conferences/international for information on how to submit.
We look forward to learning from you!

About PATH Intl.:
The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International(r) (PATH Intl(r).) was formed in 1969 to promote safety and optimal outcomes in equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) for individuals with special needs. At 873 member centers, nearly 69,000 children and adults, including more than 6,700 veterans, may find improved health, wellness, fun and a sense of pride and independence through involvement with horses. Therapeutic horsemanship at member centers may include hippotherapy, equine-facilitated mental health, driving, interactive vaulting, trail riding, competition, ground work and stable management. Through a wide variety of educational resources, the association helps individuals start and maintain successful EAAT programs. There are nearly 62,000 volunteers, 4,776 instructors, 7,943 equines and thousands of contributors from all over the world helping people at PATH Intl. Member Centers.
