NDSU to host conference for professional equine-assisted services providers

PATH Intl. works to advance professional equine-assisted services.

North Dakota State University Bison Strides and the Department of Animal Sciences will be hosting the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) Region 6 Conference March 10-12 on the NDSU campus. Bison Strides partners individuals with disabilities and horses to build strength, confidence and independence. This is the third time they will be hosting the event.

“The conference is an excellent opportunity to learn more about how horses impact the human experience,” says Erika Berg, NDSU Bison Strides program director and associate professor. “Topics range from horsemanship to trauma-informed practices to non-profit and volunteer management. There is really something for everyone.”
