It is a great honor and pleasure to inform you that the Korea Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (KATH) and Korea Racing Authority (KRA) will host the 17th HETI International Congress (HETI 2021 SEOUL), in Seoul, Korea, from June 7-10, 2021.

The world has seen a fair bit of challenges since last year due to COVID-19. Unfortunately, as the global situation has not markedly improved, it is difficult to anticipate how international travel restrictions will change by June. As our priority is always the health and safety of our attendees, the 17th HETI International Congress Organizing Committee has decided to move forward with an In-person & Virtual Hybrid Congress and made our program more compact by reducing the length from 5 days to 4 days.

Our exciting 4-day program will feature diverse incentives and maximum benefits to all attendees who participate either in-person or virtually in the 17th HETI International Congress. Importantly, all KATH and KRA members are working diligently to create opportunities as a rallying point for a broad range of constituencies of researchers, therapists, instructors, volunteers, and participants to provide an effective platform for all to share up-to-date information, expertise, and knowledge in the field of equine-assisted activities and therapies.

We thank you for your understanding of the change to the Congress format and hope for your active participation. Stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to welcoming you both in-person and virtually at the 17th HETI International Congress.
