Horse Trainer, Adoption Specialist

Horse Plus Humane Society

Award Date: January 18, 2017
Awarded: $20,000

In an effort to dramatically increase the number of horses adopted every year Horse Plus Humane Society recognized their need for an on staff trainer. The trainer’s duty is to evaluate and train horses available for adoption and work with potential adopters to find the right horse their needs. With an on staff trainer adopters will have access to complimentary sessions with the trainer and their new horse to ensure capability and reduce potential returns to the shelter.

In this position the trainer is also the adoption specialist and is directly responsible for posting the horses available on the website using photos and biographies to help attract potential adopters. Horse Plus Humane expects to not only increase the number of horse adoptions from their Tennessee shelter but also decrease their length of stay.
