NDSU’s Equine Science Program is scheduled to co-host the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International Region 6 conference in Fargo on March 9-11.
Riding on Angels' Wings of Felton, Minn., and the Serenity Therapeutic Equine Program of Minot also are co-hosts. The conference will be held at the Doublewood Inn in Fargo, 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 minor and certificate programs in therapeutic horsemanship through a partnership with Minnesota State University Moorhead, Riding on Angels' Wings and Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International.
The conference is open to anyone with an interest in equine-assisted therapies. Online registration ended Feb. 17, but on-site registration is available. Discounted registration is available for students. For the online link to the event or more information, contact Berg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
