PATH In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence and Horse Expo

Trail Rider - - HOT ON THE TRAIL -

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.
