European Hippotherapy Associations Network

We have great news! Friday morning, before the meeting, there is a workshop with Dr Beth Macauley (USA) - Hippotherapy and Speech therapy. Registration is needed, places are limited! More information here.

Hippotherapy is a physiotherapeutic treatment method practised by physical and occupational therapists within their scope of practice for more than 40 years. Unfortunately, it has not been recognized as an official treatment approach covered by the health care systems in most European countries.

So let us meet and unite our knowledge, skills and try to change it!
