And its a wrap!
The NSBA Foundation is announcing the completion of the first COACHES SUMMIT, which was held in Gurnee, Illinois, March 26-28, 2018. Participants represented 10 states across the country. Presenters at the workshop included horse industry professionals, post-secondary educators, therapeutic riding instructors, business & industry professionals, family members and riders. The theme of the event was “A Model of Inclusion for all Riders”. Participants also received Continuing Education credit for 16 hours of professional development.
The 3- day workshop brought a diverse group of stakeholders together to explore opportunities for engagement and expansion of current or new riding programs and learn about NSBA competitive events for the inclusion of Equestrians with Disabilities or Veterans using horses as a form of therapeutic riding.
Financial stipends were provided to interested applicants to offset travel, lodging and meals at the conference. As a special project of the NSBA Foundation, the work shop was funded by Gutmann Farms- Texas, the Curt & Beth Hartman Family and WinTrust Bank.
