The excellent education sessions and networking at the 2016 PATH Intl. Conference & Annual Meeting, November 2-5, 2016, in Williamsburg, Virginia, will have you shouting Huzzah! This conference, presented by title sponsor Purina, is the premier event in equine-assisted activities and therapies. We are excited about the number of educational sessions the conference offers, with everything from an equine workload rating scale to strategic planning for centers, working with veterans, mindfulness, promoting independence at all riding levels, retired polo ponies and EAAT and everything in between. Poster sessions will highlight research and project findings. Community Connections Day features all-day workshops for executive directors, equine welfare, novice instructors and experienced instructors. The awards banquet on Friday night will touch your heart and underscore why you are in this amazing industry. The culmination of the conference is the Horse Expo with presenting sponsor Virginia Horse Industry Board at Dream Catchers at the Cori Sikich Riding Center. Don't miss any of the excitement and wonderful opportunities to network with friends, mentors and colleagues!
