About HETI

The Federation of Horses in Education and Therapy International AISBL (originally the Federation of Riding for the Disabled International) was founded in 1980 and is registered in Belgium as a non-profit organization.

HETI depends on membership fees for its day-to-day operation. Additional income is from sponsorship and donations. The fulfilment of the HETI Mission is dependent on the energy and commitment of our members and the generosity of our sponsors.

HETI is manged by The International Council, The International Executive Committee and The International Bureau. All voting delegates and Executive Committee members are required to make impartial decisions and judgements in the best interests of all HETI members.

The International Council governs HETI and is composed of delegates of HETI's Federation Member organisations. It elects The Executive Committee from the Federation Members. The Executive Committee acts on behalf of the International Council between its meetings to give effect to its decisions, recommendations and policies; and to represent it at international and national events,

The International Bureau is HETI's office. It is located in the United States of America.
