European equine facilitated therapy network (EEFTN) is a group of equine facilitated therapy associations and practitioners from all over Europe to bring them together to get an agreement over the terminology, work on recognition of hippotherapy, share and exchange of best practice and education models. EEFTN connects therapists on the international level. However, it promotes national associations and the cooperation of practitioners within their countries.
HETI supports EEFTN in establishing connection, communication and collaboration between organisations and people in European equine facilitated therapy community.

Therapists of different professions from Spain, Italy, Czech Republic, Greece, Russia, Malta, Finland, United Kingdom, Norway, Ireland, Poland, Latvia and Lithuania came together as well as association representatives, Sanna Mattila-Rautainen, President of HETI and Anton Saratov, Board member of HETI.
