Basic Skills for Difficult Horses Clinic

Join us to learn how to handle rescued, troubled horses

  • Jemma undergoes training at Doris Day Horse Rescue and Adoption Center. The Humane Society of the United States

The Humane Society of the United States is announcing the first Rescue Horse Training Clinic to support rescue centers who handle rescued horses that have been through traumatic experiences. The clinic will be held at The Fund for Animals’ Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch in Murchison, Texas (an affiliate of The Humane Society of the United States).

The Humane Society of the United States has selected Carter Ranch Horse and Trevor Carter to design and teach this three-day clinic to representatives of 12 rescue centers from across the United States. All trainers and directors of rescue centers are invited to apply. Trevor Carter’s deep understanding of a horse's needs, unrivaled teaching experience, and vast knowledge in developing and rehabilitating horses makes him the perfect fit to guide others who care about horses through this high level topic.

The program will focus on the safe evaluation, handling, and effective training of horses that are difficult and potentially dangerous when:

  • Catching and haltering
  • Leading and tying
  • Trailer loading
  • Vetting
  • Trimming and shoeing
  • Addressing biting, kicking, and other vices

This unique training is designed to further empower and equip rescues with techniques and methods they need to more effectively and successfully rehome horses as willing partners. Rescue organizations who are interested in participating in the clinic and having follow-up support with Trevor Carter will be required to submit an application form and short video.
