North Dakota State University to co-host equine-assisted therapies conference
North Dakota State University’s (NDSU) Equine Science Program is co-hosting the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH International) Region 6 conference in Fargo, ND, on March 9-11.
Riding on Angels’ Wings (ROAW) of Felton, MN, and the Serenity Therapeutic Equine Program of Minot also are co-hosts. The conference will be held at the Doublewood Inn in Fargo, ND, with the barn track at the NDSU Equine Center.
“The fields of equine-assisted activities and therapies are growing rapidly,” said Erika Berg, an assistant professor in NDSU’s Animal Sciences Department and a conference co-organizer. “This conference provides an excellent, cost- effective opportunity to network, share knowledge and disseminate information on this exciting discipline.”
NDSU offers a minor and certificate program in therapeutic horsemanship through a partnership with Minnesota State University Moorhead, ROAW and PATH International.
The conference is open to anyone with an interest in equine-assisted therapies.
Online registration ends, Feb. 18, but on-site registration is available after that. Discounted registration is available for students. For the online link to this event or more information, contact Berg at: email@example.com.
