Become a Member

Our members are the heart and soul of the United Horse Coalition, and they are the driving force behind the work we do.  As a collaborative effort, it’s important that the United Horse Coalition be comprised of many different organizations that can come together as one collective voice to help at-risk horses and those in transition.  UHC also provides important educational materials, infographics, and example forms for all of its members to utilize and distribute to their own clients and membership base.

We cannot support and sustain the wonderful work UHC does without its members!

Organizational membership in the UHC is available at several levels.  If you are interested in becoming a member, contact the UHC Director for details, or apply online.  Want to learn more about what we do?  Watch this Introductory Video taken from our recent UHC 2020 Virtual Meeting!

NEW for 2018: Non-Profit Membership (Equine Rescue or Sanctuary.): $25
The UHC recognizes the need to provide resources and information for equine care facilities, rescues, and sanctuaries around the country. As such, we have created a “Nonprofit Membership” for these types of organizations that wish to be a part of the UHC, at a very minimal cost. Members should be organizations that are actively committed to advocating for “Owning Responsibly,” organizations that strive to provide collaborative partnerships with the horse industry. and be a registered 501(c)(3).  Open to any registered Equine Rescue or Sanctuary.

A special THANK YOU to A Home for Every Horse for their support of this membership!

Our Mission:

Through industry collaboration, the UHC promotes education and options for at-risk and transitioning horses.

Owning Responsibly:

The United Horse Coalition is a broad alliance of equine organizations that have joined together under the American Horse Council to educate the horse industry about the issues facing horses At-Risk, or in transition. We seek to provide information for existing and prospective owners, breeders, sellers, and horse organizations regarding the long-term responsibilities of owning and caring for horses, as well as focusing on the opportunities available for these horses.

Join the Cause:

The UHC exists thanks to supporters like you. Your financial contribution is critical to helping us continue our mission.
