EQUITANA 2023 - What a Blast!

Spannende Messewoche auf der EQUITANA!

A week full of productive meetings and discussions came to an end and we can happily say that EQUITANA 2023 in Essen was - again - a great success!

We would like to thank the DKThR and the German Equestrian Federation (FN) for their hospitality and the opportunity to present our EQUITEDO® documentation and assessment tool to the many interested professionals at the large joint booth - again, we appreciate the great interest and the beneficial exchange! We are thrilled by the positive response and the numerous contacts we were able to make at EQUITANA and are already looking forward to the next event, which will take place in March 2025!

EQUITEDO® at Sports Doctors' Course

EQUITEDO® bei Sportärzte-Fortbildung

In the context of an advanced training of the Sportärztebund Nordrhein e.V. (sports doctor association) last Saturday (04.03.2023), the EQUITEDO® assessment and evaluation tool was presented to interested medical professionals in the context of a teaching unit Equine Assisted Therapy at the Equestrian Sports and Riding Therapy Center of the Gold- Kraemer Foundation.

We are very happy about the interest also from the medical side, as EQUITEDO® also enables a close interlocking with the medical care of clients and patients in particular through the function "Report of findings for medical professionals".

Through close coordination in the triangle of therapist/pedagogical specialist, client and treating medical personnel, the best possible care can thus be realized and the joint treatment path can be finely coordinated.
