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 Network:

Transition Sites

The core of the METS Network consists of members who are willing take ownership of a horse in need of transition. The METS staff works closely with each potential home to understand their interests, needs, skills, resources, facilities, and capacity and will approach members to consider horses that best match their criteria.


Veterinarians serve a key role in the METS Network by conferring with the METS Director 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.

Network Associates

Network Associates include anyone who does not fit into the previous two categories, but still want to get involved and help in some way. The possibilities in which one can help are endless and METS staff encourage discussion to determine how each person can contribute in their own way to the mission.
