UHC AMBASSADORS HIGHLIGHT THE ISSUES / SHARE SOLUTIONS

Volunteers needed to speak on behalf of at-risk horses and those in transition!

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. UHC also provides a National Equine Resource Database of safety net programs, as well as a current listing of Rescues and Sanctuaries for owners to access in their time of need.

On occasion, the UHC receives requests from equine groups around the country for a representative to speak to their group about the issues facing at-risk horses and those in transition, and about the options available to these horses. Due to the number of requests and the varied locations, a UHC representative is often not available to attend these meetings and events.

To this end, the UHC is reviving the Ambassador Program, a volunteer program involving members of the horse industry who represent the UHC at meetings in their particular region to present information about the UHC and the plight of at-risk horses and those in transition. The UHC will provide speakers with materials including a PowerPoint presentation, sample scripts, related articles, and brochures.

This is a great opportunity to spread the word about the programs available Nationwide to help prevent horses from becoming at-risk, as well as responsible ownership to equine enthusiasts across the nation. If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact the United Horse Coalition at 202-817-3936 or e-mail at UHC@horsecouncil.org.

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.
