Leveraging the knowledge, expertise, and connections within Maryland’s vibrant equine community to ensure the welfare of all Maryland horses in need of transition.
METS Partners are a group of industry professionals and individuals who believe that safe transition options should be available to all horses in Maryland. These Partners serve as advocates for the horses and the program by working directly with horses in need of transition and encouraging other industry members to participate.
There are three primary categories of METS Partners:
This category includes trainers, boarding farms, farriers, transporters, etc., all who have made equine welfare and education a staple of their lifelong careers.
Veterinarians serve a key role in the METS Partner program by conferring with METS staff when euthanasia may be warranted. They also serve as program advocates by referring owners to the program when they plan to rehome a horse or could otherwise benefit from the resources provided by METS.
Individual Partners include those who might privately offer services or other resources, as needed.
