New Caregiver’s Guide to Rehabilitating the Neglected Horse is Now Available

The American Horse Council is pleased to announce the availability of a new brochure, done in partnership with AHC sponsors Nutrena, Intervet/ Schering-Plough Animal Health and the American Farrier’s Association.

As many of us are aware, the plight of the neglected horse continues to worsen.  As more horse owners step in to help, many are looking for guidance, as they have cared for horses but may not have experience with horses in this particular state before.

The Caregiver’s Guide to Rehabilitating the Neglected Horse shows horse owners who have rescued a neglected horse how to properly bring that animal back to a healthy state, without overly stressing their already fragile state.  Sections include proper feeding, proper vaccination & deworming practices, and hoof care.  “The American Horse Council is thankful that, in working with our members and sponsors, we are able to provide resources to help horse owners and potential horse owners to rehabilitate neglected horses,” said AHC President Jay Hickey.

The Caregiver’s Guide was introduced at the recent AAEP Convention, and received much welcome from the veterinarians in attendance.  The printed copy contains a page with coupons from Nutrena and Intervet products, as well as a coupon for a new discounted individual membership with the AHC.  Anyone wishing to obtain printed copies of this brochure can contact Ericka Caslin of the Unwanted Horse Coalition at or 202-209-4031.

The Caregiver’s Guide (minus the coupons) will also be available for download on the Resources page of the Unwanted Horse Coalition website.
