Compendium Part 1 & Compendium Part 2 are now available for purchase at Amazon, and several other resellers, as paperback and/or Kindle version.
Both volumes contain articles from the speakers' presentations from the 1st International 2017 symposium, as well as a variety of other internationally known and experienced contributors from a wide range of different organizations, models and research areas within the field of equine science and equine assisted therapies and activities.
Since the first Symposium „A Horse is a Horse, of Course!?“ took place in 2017, a total of 2650 € have been generated through sales of the compendium as well as left over proceeds from the Symposiums. So far, over 450 books have been sold! All funds are distributed to and managed by MiMer, a non-profit organization, with the understanding that generated funds are only distributed and used for future research according to a (still to be developed) research design. Once € 10.000,- have been reached, efforts will be put into developing an international study design that will further advance our field of the welfare and well-being of Equines in as well as the effectiveness of Equine Interactive programs. Providers who are willing to participate in this research can then, if qualified, apply for grants from MiMer. If you want to support this cause, please invest in one or more of the compendiums, attend the symposiums and/or submit an abstract for either presenting in the future or being published in one of the future compendiums. Throughout it all, we will keep you updated on generated funds as well as current developments.
