The Center for Animals and Public Policy at the Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, in N. Grafton, Mass., is hosting the 2014 Northeast Wild Horse Adoption Conference on March 28-30.

The goals of the conference are to connect members of the equine community—from adopters and potential adopters, to equine rescue organizations, equine and veterinary professionals, and veterinary students—and promote successful Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wild horse adoption in the Northeast.

The conference will feature speakers including Kris Kokal from Horse Tenders Mustang Foundation and Mona Jerome from Ever After Mustang Rescue, and offer a variety of panels and discussions on BLM wild horse adoption.

Saturday’s topics include caring for a wild horse, acquiring and selecting a wild horse, and understanding relinquishment of wild horses. Sunday opens with small group discussions on ways to promote adoption of BLM wild horses in the Northeast and will be followed by saddle-fitting and training demonstrations as well as a “meet and greet” with locally adopted mustangs.

The weekend will also feature opportunities to meet with conference presenters, informational tables, and ample time to network with other wild horse enthusiasts.

The conference is made possible in part by grants from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Elizabeth A. Lawrence Endowed Fund.
