The Arabian Horse Association has announced a partnership with The Right Horse Initiative to help promote equine adoption through the initiative and support the national movement reframing the conversation about equine adoption.
"The Right Horse Initiative is helping to shed new light in the area of horse adoption and AHA is excited to be a part of that movement," states Glenn Petty, executive vice president of AHA.
"It is truly inspiring to see this initiative lead the way for the organization and promotion of horse adoption in a unifying way," states Nancy Harvey, president of AHA. "This is a monumental step for the equine industry."
Each year, hundreds of thousands of horses are transitioned from career or ownership. A growing number of these horses end up at risk of inhumane treatment. Led by the WaterShed Animal Fund, The Right Horse Initiative has been developed to unify horse industry professionals, equine welfare advocates and the broader horse loving public to improve the lives of horses in transition.
Christy Counts, president of The Right Horse Initiative, said, "We are thrilled to welcome the Arabian Horse Association as a partner. AHA brings great experience, history and enthusiasm to the table and we look forward to working together to develop sustainable, transformative solutions for horses in transition."
The Right Horse Initiative promotes horse adoption as one of the preferred methods of finding a horse. This unique partnership commits the time, talent and resources to promote horse adoption through education, training and public awareness on a national level. The Initiative's goal is to massively increase the number of horse adoptions nationwide.
