A great time was had by all learning more about what we do during the PATH International Region 8 conference sponsored by LSTEN (Lone Star Equestrian Network) in Baton Rouge, LA. Our own instructors, volunteers, and rider families were some of the presenters for this fabulous 3 day event. Joan Cutler was the instructor for the always exciting PATH Standards Course for folks who are interested in becoming instructors or for centers looking to become accredited or re-accredited.

Those attending the conference representing Equest were Brad Causey, Chris Rinebarger, Naomi Heller, Lizzie Ball, Tami Ginn, Leilani Warrick, Jim and Diane Bentler, Billy Bentler, Elizabeth Murray, and Joan Cutler. Diane and Jim Benter, Equest volunteers and rider parents, gave a fantastic lesson on Fragile X Syndrome to educate others on some of the challenges they've seen their children go through, and the triumphs they've witnessed at Equest through their children. Equest also held a tack sale that proved to be very successful, bringing in over $900! Next year's conference is scheduled to be in College Station, TX at the new Texas A&M University Equestrian Center on July 31, August 1st, and August 2nd, 2015. If you are interested in joining us, all are welcome and the cost is usually around $85 for the entire conference.
