Since the first event in 2019, the ASPCA Right Horse Summit has been a place to convene around our shared goal of increasing equine adoption and providing a space to connect, innovate, and inspire one another. We’ve made new friends, engaged in groundbreaking collaborations, and come together as a community.

Summit will continue to be a manifestation of the collective of partners and programs that give life to the equine adoption movement.

We invite anyone with a passion for helping horses and equine adoption to join us. Admission to the Summit is cost-free and breakfast and lunch will be provided. Additional travel stipends covering up to three nights’ lodging in the hotel room block will be available to ASPCA Right Horse Partners and active Warm-Up Ring participants. 

Registration is now closed. We hope to see you in 2023!

You’ve given us feedback about the topics that matter most to you and your organization, and we’ve got a chock-full schedule of networking opportunities and educational sessions. Whether you’re new to the adoption movement, work in the industry, or run a shelter or rescue—we’ve curated sessions specifically for you!

This year, we’ll spend two days indoors before heading to the DFL Harmony Equine Center for hands-on sessions centered around training and management. You’ll leave Summit with the tools to raise more money and help more horses, and priceless relationships with other equine and shelter professionals.
