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 2021 Workshop has been cancelled due to Covid-19.

2020 Workshop Applications are Closed!

Equitarian Initiative Workshop Scholarships

Deadline is November 7th, 2019

Applications are now open for Equitarian Initiative Workshop Scholarships supported by the American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation. Each scholarship will be a total of $1500.00. This will cover the cost of the workshop along with $300.00 toward airfare. To qualify, applicants must be either a senior veterinary student from an AVMA-accredited veterinary college or a veterinarian who graduated from an AVMA-accredited veterinary college within five years from the start of the Workshop.  Housing, meals and transportation within Costa Rica during the Workshop will be covered as part of registration.


Two Delta Equine Seminar scholarships will also be offered. The same qualifications apply plus applicants should be Canadian or associated with the Delta Equine seminar. The amount of each will be $2050.


Direct Aid

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.
