With an interactive format, our conference addresses the concerns and challenges of the equine rescue and protection community including, this year, important topics such as fundraising, planned giving and equine trusts, facility design and management, wild horses, and compassion fatigue. There will be time for networking and learning from peers which can be as helpful as formal training. We bring together equine welfare professionals from around the country to learn new skills and strategies to find homes for horses, keep horses in homes, engage and educate communities and better their organizations. Join us as more than 150 decision makers in the field of equine rescue and sanctuary come together for two incredible days of learning, sharing and networking. We pride ourselves on being the can’t-miss conference for nonprofit equine welfare facilities. Because of the generosity of our supporting organizations, ASPCA, Animal Welfare Institute and The Humane Society of the United States, we are able to offer this conference at the minimal registration fee of $35 for The Homes for Horses Coalition Members and $85 for non-members.

Equine Hoof Health with Dr. Ric Redden

  • Sep 29 - Sep 30
  • Location: Middleton, WI, WI, USA

A combination of lectures and live demonstrations presented by Dr. Ric Redden, world renowned horse health expert, will create an intense program that captivates those wanting to learn the “out of the box” thought process and help to start thinking their way through foot issues. The course is taught at a level for farriers and veterinarians. Horse owners are also invited to register and attend. It is Dr. Redden’s impression that “when they learn together, they can bring their thoughts in line to get on the same page and become more efficient in their dual roles and responsibilities for the care of the foot”.
