United States Hunter Jumper Association Joins Unwanted Horse Coalition

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   March 15, 2012 16:03

 

 

Washington, DC – March 15, 2012. The United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) has joined the Unwanted Horse Coalition (UHC).

 

"Supporting the mission of UHC is totally in line with the USHJA’s mission of which a major component is protecting the well being of our participants both human and equine and offering broad based education for our members.  We want to do all we can to help ensure that these generous animals have the responsible care that they deserve from all of us," said Shelby French, CEO of the USHJA.

 

The USHJA, which is the nationally recognized affiliate for the hunter and jumper riding disciplines, promotes the equestrian sport and the well being of its participants. The USHJA offers broad based education for its members and provides the framework for the conduct of the hunter/jumper sport.

 

“The UHC looks forward to working with the USHJA to educate our industry about the welfare of horses. The UHSJA offers so many wonderful programs and educational seminars, it is truly a pleasure to work with an organization that has a similar mission,” said Ericka Caslin, UHC Director. “The USHJA offers equine retirement listings, as well as owner resources. Their welfare committee is dedicated to improving the well-being of our nation’s equines.”

 

The Unwanted Horse Coalition is a broad alliance of equine organizations that have joined together under the umbrella of the American Horse Council. The Coalition’s mission is to reduce the number of unwanted horses and to improve their welfare through education and the efforts of organizations committed to the health, safety, and responsible care and disposition of these horses.  

 

For more information about joining the UHC or unwanted horses, please visit the UHC website at www.unwantedhorsecoalition.org or contact Ericka Caslin at ecaslin@horsecouncil.org.

 

 

###

The Unwanted Horse Coalition

The mission of the Unwanted Horse Coalition is to reduce the number of unwanted horses and improve their welfare through education and the efforts of organizations committed to the health, safety and responsible care and disposition of these horses. The UHC grew out of the Unwanted Horse Summit, which was organized by the American Association of Equine Practitioners and held in conjunction with the American Horse Council’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C., in April 2005. The summit was held to bring key stakeholders together to start a dialogue on the unwanted horse in America. Its purpose was to develop consensus on the most effective way to work together to address the issue. In June 2006, the UHC was folded into the AHC and now operates under its auspices.
