Each year the Equitarian Workshop allows veterinarians to head to a symposium where they learn about the needs of working equids around the world.
In an effort to prioritize the health and safety of our volunteers and the vulnerable communities in which we work, the 2022 Workshop has been cancelled due to Covid-19.
2020 Workshop Applications are Closed!
Through hands-on learning and discussion at the Equitarian Workshop and Equitarian projects throughout many parts of the world, veterinarians are empowered and mentored to join and start health care delivery and education projects.
Equitarian Initiative and individual volunteer veterinarians maintain project success by partnering with local veterinarians, veterinary colleges and charities that share our vision.
An emphasis on community partnership creates a two-way educational discussion in which working equid caretakers communicate the value of the animals and volunteers share best methods of animal care.
We increase public awareness of the vital role working equids play in developing economies and the critical support they provide for the livelihood of the families that depend on them.
