UHC Re­vives Am­bas­sador Pro­gram

Trail Rider - - HOT ON THE TRAIL -

The Un­wanted Horse Coali­tion has re­vi­tal­ized its Am­bas­sador Pro­gram, a vol­un­teer ser­vice in­volv­ing mem­bers of the horse in­dus­try who rep­re­sent the UHC at meet­ings na­tion­wide to present in­for­ma­tion about the UHC and un­wanted horses.

Any or­ga­ni­za­tion or group in­ter­ested in the is­sue of un­wanted horses, how they can help re­duce the num­ber of un­wanted horses, or what it means to “Own Re­spon­si­bly” can re­quest a speaker from their area. Five, 10- and 20-minute pre­sen­ta­tions are avail­able, along with rel­e­vant lit­er­a­ture and ma­te­ri­als. A core group of 25 vol­un­teers will work to re­new the con­ver­sa­tion over the next year. If there is a larger de­mand for speak­ers, the pro­gram can ex­pand. The orig­i­nal pro­gram be­gan in 2009 and ran for three years.

If you’d like to re­quest a speaker for your up­com­ing event, or are in­ter­ested in be­com­ing an am­bas­sador, con­tact the Un­wanted Horse Coali­tion at (202) 296-4031.
