Not only will you meet like-minded people from every corner of the nation, you will learn valuable skills to take your rescue and advocacy work to the next level.

For the first time, The Homes for Horses Coalition is offering an optional day-long, hands-on training clinic on Sept. 23 with HSUS Forever Foundation program trainer, Trevor Carter.

The conference is offered at the minimal registration cost of only $35 for members and $85 for non-members, including the day-long clinic. “That’s an amazing price for this caliber and quantity of training and I hope that many take advantage of it,” said Gendron. To have this cumulative expertise in one place at one time is a unique experience, and with equine welfare professionals spread out all over the country, this is the one chance every year for them to come together to share knowledge and community, and recharge for the good fight to save our nation’s equines.” As one previous attendee put it, “All rescues should find a way to come. This is an amazing networking opportunity with people on the same mission.”
