Guide to Rehabilitating Neglected Horses Available

Want to rehabilitate a neglected horse but don't know where to start? A new brochure from the American Horse Council might help.

The new brochure, done in partnership with AHC sponsors Nutrena, Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health, and the American Farrier's Association, shows horse owners who have rescued a neglected horse how to properly bring that animal back to a healthy state, without overly stressing its already fragile systems. Sections include proper feeding, vaccination and deworming practices, and hoof care.

"The American Horse Council is thankful that, in working with our members and sponsors, we are able to provide resources to help horse owners and potential horse owners to rehabilitate neglected horses," said AHC President Jay Hickey

The Caregiver's Guide to Rehabilitating the Neglected Horse was introduced at the recent AAEP Convention. The printed copy contains a page with coupons from Nutrena and Intervet products, as well as a coupon for a new discounted individual membership with the AHC.

The brochure (minus the coupons) is available for download on the Resources page of the Unwanted Horse Coalition Web site Caregiver's Guide to Rehabilitating the Neglected Horse. To obtain printed copies of this brochure contact Ericka Caslin of the Unwanted Horse Coalition at or 202/209-4031.
