WELCOME TO THE 2018 HETI CONGRESS IN DUBLIN, IRELAND
On behalf of Festina Lente, Horse Sport Ireland and the Equine Facilitated Education and Therapy Association (Ireland), I am delighted to welcome you to the 2018 HETI website which will provide you with a comprehensive overview of all matters as they relate to the 2018 Congress, entitled ‘Striking the Balance’. That this congress should be taking place in the Royal Dublin Society Ireland which is indeed most apt given its long legacy of hosting the world famous ‘Dublin Horse Show’.
Primarily, this congress aims to achieve 3 key objectives; firstly, to allow like-minded people meet, network and learn from each other’s experience, interests and expertise. Second, to bring together the latest research as it measures the benefits of Equine Facilitated Programmes for people and also how Equine Facilitated Programmes impacts on equines. Finally, we aim to provide all attendees with a lasting experience of the warm hospitality of the Irish people.
This is the first time that Ireland will have hosted this congress and we feel privileged to be able to host what we expect to be a memorable experience for everybody.
