Join Our Resource Database:

The United Horse Coalition has pushed up the release of its searchable Equine Resource Database in the wake of COVID-19, in an effort to compile a listing of all known safety net programs available in the nation to help owners who are in need.  By having one centrally located area to access these resources, UHC hopes it will help owners keep their horses from becoming at-risk during these trying times.

For the past year, UHC has been building upon its already successful Equine Resource Database to benefit at-risk equines, and those in transition.  The database contains a list of resources available nationwide to help current horse owners, prospective horse owners, rescues, sanctuaries, and the equine industry as a whole.

Organizations that offer any type of safety net resources are encouraged to take part in this questionnaire and help the United Horse Coalition build upon this already successful resource database.  The brief questionnaire (5-10 minutes) can be completed by going to the UHC website at or click the button below.

A resource can be an organization or individual who has the ability to provide any of the items below, or any other asset not listed that could be used for the betterment of horses at risk, or in transition.

  • Horse Rescues or Sanctuaries
  • Direct Placement Organizations
  • Supplies

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.

Our Mission:

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