Privacy Policy

The Maryland Horse Council is the sole owner of information collected by the Maryland Equine Transition Service (METS).  The MHC will not sell or share electronic information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.

METS collects information from participants in order to make the best recommendations and matches for horses in need of transition. Information is collected online, by phone, and/or in person.

Information about specific individuals will not be shared unless required by law in the cases of animal abuse of neglect.  However, METS will aggregate information and provide a summary of data, along with other program evaluation measures, to entities that provide significant grant funding as a condition of such funding.

The MHC takes every precaution to protect users’ information both on- and off-line.  Participants and those who express interest in METS will receive program updates via email. Those who wish to be removed from the mailing list can do so by clicking on the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of public METS communications or by emailing the METS Director at

The MHC reserves the right to makes changes to its Privacy Policy.  These changes will be posted on the METS website.
