Welcome to Summit

Join us in Lexington, Kentucky from September 19-21

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; giving equine welfare leaders and changemakers a space to connect, innovate, and inspire one another. At the Summit, we’ve made new friends, engaged in groundbreaking collaborations, and come together as a community.

Summit registration will be open very soon. Here’s what to expect: 

Who attends: 
The ASPCA Right Horse Summit is attended by equine industry and welfare leaders who have a passion for helping horses through adoption. Veterinarians, students, and advocates are invited to become a part of the welfare-shifting conversation at the event.   

How to attend: 
Registration will open in early April along with the full schedule. Registration is $75 per person and includes access to all sessions, session materials, swag, and lunch each day. Single-day or partial registration is not available, as sessions are designed to build on one another. 

ASPCA Right Horse Partners and Warm-Up Ring groups are eligible to receive a travel stipend to cover the conference fee and some travel costs. If you represent a non-profit adoption group and would like to explore partnership, join the Warm-Up Ring.
