The UHC offers a volunteer service involving members of the horse industry who represent the UHC to present information about horses at-risk or in transition, and the efforts to reduce the number of at-risk horses nationwide.

Any organization or group interested in the issue of horses at-risk or in transition, how they can help reduce the number of at-risk horses, or what it means to “Own Responsibly” can request a speaker from their area. To request a speaker, contact the UHC.

If speakers are not available, the UHC is pleased to provide you with materials for distribution at your event.  See the UHC Materials page.

Speakers are currently available in the locations pinned on the map below.  Or click here for a larger version:  UHC Ambassador Map.

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 problem of 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.
