WHEN: September 21-23, 2024 • WHERE: YOTEL Washington DC

The Homes for Horses Coalition is a national network of equine rescues and sanctuaries with over 500 members representing equine welfare in 48 states and multiple countries. Led by the Animal Welfare Institute and American Wild Horse Conservation, our conference brings together equine welfare professionals to learn new skills and strategies to find homes for horses, keep horses in homes, engage and educate communities, and better their organizations. This year, we will share the equine knowledge of our members with lawmakers on the final “lobby day” of the event, spurring change for horses on a national scale.
