Summary: Rescues have increased in both number and importance to the US horse industry, even as we come out of the economic recession. Horses enter rescues for a variety of reasons. Some are there because they have not met expectations at the track or show ring. Others enter due to financial issues and some may have experienced neglect or abuse. Often, the new owner must rehabilitate a rescued horse with little to no background in the horse's health, temperament or training. This webinar will discuss health care issues specific to the rescued horse as well as day to day management and re-training.
