Meeting of the Hippotherapy Associations
On January 16th, Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre organized, in collaboration with Fundación Caballo Amigo, the tenth Annual Meeting of the Hippotherapy Associations between professionals from different institutions that work in the field of the therapeutic riding in Spain.
As usual, the meeting took place at the Club de Campo Villa de Madrid, starting at 11:00 with the presentations of their different projects, followed by the presentation of some final conclusions, and a luncheon for those present. The meeting touched its end at about 16:00 hours.
The main goals pursued with this annual meeting were:
- To put in contact all the representatives of institutions conducting Equestrian Activities oriented to individuals with special needs.
- To gather information about the real needs of institutions and professionals, so the Foundation can assist them with technical advice and support.
- To discuss problems shared by the Equestrian Therapy community in our country.
- To establish bonds towards the development of joint programs among the different institutions.
- To collect sponsorship applications for projects to be developed in 2017.
This meeting was possible thanks to the support of the Therapeutic Riding Associations that came from multiple points of the Spanish geography, showing great interest in exposing the activities and projects for 2017 which wish to present to Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre to opt for a possible collaboration.
Another of the best points of this meeting is the opportunity to expand prospects through the exchange of impressions and knowledge between those present, enabling the strengthening of points in common and the generation of new ideas to implement in the daily operation of their respective entities.
