The Homes for Horses Coalition 2018 Conference
September 21-23, Orlando, FL

Are you involved in an equine rescue or sanctuary organization or safety-net program? Are you thinking of starting one? Are you an equine welfare advocate? Come to the only national conference designed for you! Not only will you meet like-minded people from every corner of the nation, you will learn valuable skills to take your rescue and advocacy work to the next level. With workshops on fundraising, grants, effective digital presence, working with law enforcement, engaging trainers and getting horses adopted, you'll dig into the topics that really pay-off.

Plan now to join experts and colleagues for this unparalleled opportunity to learn and network. Dual tracks will offer variety for those with different interests and experience. There will be plenty of time for networking and learning from peers which is always a highlight for our attendees. This year we will offer an optional day to attend a hands-on horse training clinic with The HSUS Forever Foundation program trainer, Trevor Carter.
