Busting the Stereotype: PATH International at 50

Friday, November 8, 2019

4:30 PM  - 6:00 PM


  Therapeutic horsemanship is definitely not “just a pony ride” - we have come a long way. PATH Intl. member centers and credentialed professionals all over the world are creating exciting new program concepts and are implementing imaginative approaches to bring equines and people together for therapy, education and recreation. The positive impact of these innovative programs can be felt by an increasing number of participant groups. We have brought together five PATH Intl. members who represent advancement and new horizons in therapeutic horsemanship and in celebrating the profound  relationship between humans and horses. Join us for a lively opening session as this group discusses successes, challenges, opportunities and how all of us can tackle the future with the same “old school” determination and passion that the founding generation of PATH Intl. brought to the first 50 years while busting the stereotypes moving in to the next 50.
