METS is a statewide equine safety net initiative of the Maryland Horse Council that provides alternatives for horses needing homes by helping owners identify and select the best transition options. Meet METS sessions are for any equine professional who is interested in the welfare of Maryland horses.

We will present a short description of the program’s history and goals as well as plans for the next two years. More importantly, we want to answer your questions and listen to your concerns, ideas, and feedback.  Our aim is to engage the entire equine community, from horse owners to industry leaders.

Together, we can keep horses out of the slaughter pipeline.
