United Horse Council seeks to expand National Speaker Program
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Unwanted Horse Coalition’s (UHC) National Speaker Program has been up and running since early 2009 with approximately 100 speakers in the database. This program provides equine events around the country with UHC volunteers to speak about the issue of unwanted horses and what it means to “Own Responsibly.” The UHC is looking to expand its National Speaker Program by adding additional speakers and additional events to the schedule.
The UHC will provide literature to hand out at the event, as well as a Power Point presentation about the coalition and the unwanted horse issue. Speakers will be matched to events based on location.
“We encourage organizations to take advantage of this opportunity to spread the word about the issues surrounding unwanted horses and the work of the UHC,” said Ericka Caslin, Director of the UHC.
If you have an equine related event coming up, please contact the UHC to request a speaker. It has become increasingly important to educate the equine industry about the issues at hand and ways to get involved.
If you are interested in requesting a speaker for your upcoming event or are willing to represent the UHC as a speaker please contact the Unwanted Horse Coalition at 202-296-4031 or email@example.com. The UHC will do its best to accommodate all events.
Many livestock producers are utilizing stockpiled pasture, hay regrowth and warm- or cool-season annuals to extend the grazing season this fall.
