Therapeutic Riding Associations and Centres Meeting
On January 19th the Foundation for the Promotion of Equestrian Sport, in collaboration with the Horse Friend Foundation, organized a meeting between professionals from different institutions working in the therapeutic riding environment in Spain. It’s been now eight years since both foundations have favoured this appointment.
The meeting took place at the Club de Campo Villa de Madrid. The day began at 11:00 am, where the event started with different presentations of projects, and continuing with the final conclusions and a lunch that closed the meeting around 16:30 hours.
The main objectives of this annual meeting are:
- Establish direct contact between representatives of different institutions conducting equestrian activities for people with disabilities.
- Meet the real needs of each institution and / or professional to provide technical advice and assistance from the Foundation.
- Discuss common problems among those people involved in therapeutic riding in our country.
- Establish bonds for the development of joint programmes between the different institutions.
- Gather projects for 2025 with the different requests.
Once more, this meeting has the support of the associations and foundations within the field of national therapeutic riding through their presence and interest, not only involving their own activities, but also projects that the other teams have presented. With this we have successfully expanded perspectives, exchanging knowledge and ideas with people who pursue the same goal with different plans and resources, all with therapeutic riding as the main focus of their activity.
