The Homes for Horses Coalition is proud to announce its 2017 Conference on September 22 and 23 in Los Angeles, California. This is the only national conference specifically for the equine rescue and sanctuary community. Plan now to join experts and colleagues for this unparalleled opportunity to learn and network.

​Cindy Gendron, Manager of the Coalition, said, ​“With ​the ​concerns ​and ​challenges ​of ​equine rescuers and advocates in mind, ​we ​have ​created ​a ​conference ​that addresses important ​topics ​our members have asked for, including fundraising, compassion fatigue, planned giving and equine trusts, facility design and management, disaster planning and wild horses.” 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 when like-minded people gather. 

Because of the generosity of the Coalition’s sponsoring organizations, the conference is offered at the minimal registration cost of only $35 for members and $85 for non-members. “That’s an amazing price for this caliber of training and I hope that many take advantage of it,” says Gendron. Our members are spread out all over the country and this is a wonderful opportunity for them to come together to share knowledge and community, and recharge for the good fight to save our nation’s equines.” For the first time, The Homes for Horses Coalition is offering limited sponsorship opportunities. For information about the benefits of sponsorship, contact Cindy Gendron at cindy@homesforhorses.org. 

In addition to those operating equine rescue and retirement facilities, members of the Coalition include organizations involved in government policy affecting equines, and professionals in the field such as veterinarians and attorneys. To have this cumulative expertise in one place at one time is a unique experience. As one previous attendee put it, “All rescues should find a way to come. This is an amazing networking opportunity with people on the same mission.” You can find more information about the conference and register online at https://www.regonline.com/builder/site/Default.aspx?EventID=1948244. We’ll see you in Los Angeles, September 22-23!
