The United Kingdom National Horse Care Professionals are on a mission to improve the lives of domestic horses! We want to expand our knowledge with an emphasis on optimal horse wellness and longevity and if you are a horse health professional we want you to join us.
We will provide a venue both on-line and physically for intellectual sharing of ideas, where members can meet to support the sharing of the most up to date horse-related information on diet, hoof care, training and environmental influences and listen to presentations by expert guest speakers in the field of horse health and wellness. Meetings will take place in the UK but professionals from outside the UK are welcome to join us and our directory.
