PATH International Conference and Horse Expo
The 2016 PATH International Conference and Annual Meeting will be held November 2-5, 2016, in Williamsburg, Va. This conference, presented by title sponsor Purina, is the premier event in the equine-assisted activities and therapies field. The keynote address will be given by Colonel Gregory Gadson, a decorated Army veteran, actor, and motivational speaker.
The culmination of the conference is the PATH Intl. Horse Expo at Dream Catchers at the Cori Sikich Riding Center, a PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center in Toano, Va., on November 5. Featuring hands-on demonstrations, the horse expo brings to life the lessons learned in sessions throughout the week.
A highlight of the horse expo will be a session with Michael Richardson of Restoration Ranch. A jeep accident when he was in his early 20s changed Richardson’s life. For the past 30 years, he has shared the lessons he has learned as a paraplegic to overcome the most difficult challenges. His work led him to work with veterans and their families to reintegrate into civilian life. Richardson will give a riding demonstration during the lunch break.
