Deauville, France “Pôle international du Cheval”.

On May 31, the Horses & Humans Research Foundation will be hosting an international Symposium entitled, The Universal Language of The Horse which will take place at the Longines International Equestrian Centre, Deauville. It will be an innovative format, bringing research from the lab to the arena, quite literally, featuring a number of live interactive demonstrations with research and equine-assisted practitioners and horses, including former racehorses and Veterans working with horses.

Speakers from all over the world will be presenting on a variety of equine assisted service research. Human and horse interventions are positive, but the research explains the how and why. This one-day event promises to be inspiring and a great time for networking for all involved.
