Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, there may be situations where members are unable to maintain proper upkeep of their horses. A number of organizations across the United States have created programs to assist in aiding horse owners with ways to provide feed or relocation for horses in need. The Equine Welfare Committee also recommend that horse owners reach out to their State Horse Councils to see if additional options are available.
