About PATH Intl.

ainslieEnter the 2016 PATH Intl. Photo Contest and Win!

Win a free registration for the 2016 PATH Intl. Conference and Annual Meeting or other fabulous prizes

Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) is often asked to provide photos to print and online publications for publication in stories about equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT). In addition, we always need good photos for PATH Intl. publications, including PATH Intl. Strides, social media and the website.

Gain greater exposure for your center while seeing your photos in Strides, eNews and the website! (Pictured on right: Ainslie Alley who rides at SIRE, a PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center in Hockley Texas, proudly displays the Strides magazine that featured her on the cover.)

So set your digital camera or phone at its highest resolution and take your best active photos of your center's riders, equines, volunteers and professionals. Show us your center's driving, interactive vaulting, group activities, teamwork and more! Be creative; there is no limiting your inner photographer.


Photos must be at least 300 dpi

Photos must be at least 4 x 6 inches. (Photos for the cover of Strides need to be 8.5 x 11 inches.)

Photos should be in .tif, .jpg, .eps or .pdf formats.

Photos must not be manipulated (no added frames, borders, filters, text, etc.).

Mail a CD or flashdrive of the photos with photo credit and a completed separate entry form for each, postmarked no later than June 30, 2016. Or email Cher Smith at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

2008-120Photo Releases

Photo releases are required for each photo submission.

The individual entering the PATH Intl. photo contest must sign the PATH Intl. photo release form.

In addition, if there are humans in your submitted photograph, there must be a release form submitted for each individual. Most PATH Intl. member centers keep a photo release on file for each participant, volunteer and staff member. If your release covers PATH Intl. promotional use of the submitted photo’s participants, staff or volunteers, please feel free to submit a copy of those forms with the entry. If your center does not keep a photo release file, please have all individuals pictured complete the PATH Intl. photo release form and include it with your entry form. Click here to download a photo release form.

If you are using a photo from a professional photographer, you will need permission to enter the photo and will need to note photo credit. The photographer will need to sign a photo release.
