For Immediate Release

The United Horse Coalition is proud to announce the winner of its inaugural “Unity for Horses” award.

Last up out of 5 awards presented during the American Horse Council’s awards luncheon, but certainly not least!  The United Horse Coalition was proud to hand off its inaugural “Unity for Horses” award to Days End Farm Horse Rescue.

To be considered for the Unity Award, individuals (or organizations) must:

  1. be an active member of the United Horse Coalition 2+ years in good standing.
  2. take initiative to be involved in, and work towards programs that promote responsible ownership and breeding, and/or programs that support horses at-risk or in transition and their owners.
  3. use their industry relationships to work collaboratively to further strengthen and promote the mission of the United Horse Coalition.

“For our first time presenting this award, I had a hard time choosing one above the many organizations who are so deserving of this award.  However, when I thought about what it means to be united in this industry towards helping at-risk horses, Days End Farm Horse Rescue embodied the spirit of the unity we seek.” Says Ashley Harkins, UHC Director.

Maryland Equine Transition Service (METS)

Through their Maryland Equine Transition Service (METS), Days End Farm provides a perfect example of an owner assistance program that utilizes an all-hands approach within the industry to ensure that owners are able to find responsible options and assistance programs when in need.

The staff at the United Horse Coalition and American Horse Council would like to congratulate Brittney Vallot.  Brittney accepted the award on behalf of the staff at Days End Farm Horse Rescue for their continued work in supporting the mission of the UHC and horses in need.
