Animal Wellness Action
The New York-based Equine Collaborative International (ECI), Animal Wellness Action, the Animal Wellness Foundation, Monty Roberts, Dr. Maria Katsamasis, Frank Lovato, Jr., and Bernice Ende have teamed up to produce an equine educational webinar series.
Each year including 2020, ECI has held an in-person March Meet-Up in Western New York to raise scholarship funds for young equine enthusiasts in need, but in 2021 is replacing the annual in-person event with this webinar series in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are very excited to have this great lineup of presenters for our first webinar series,” said Phyllis Jensen, President of Equine Collaborative International, LLC. “The diversity of their topics allows us a truly ‘something for everyone’ situation as these dedicated horse people share many years of expertise and experience.”
“We’re elated to offer such an outstanding panel of world-class speakers that will help Equine Collaborative International live up to its name by making this series available around the globe,” said Marty Irby, a Director of Equine Collaborative International, LLC and Executive Director at Animal Wellness Action. “Horse enthusiasts will have an opportunity to ask questions and our iconic American equines will be represented by one of the most diverse and talented panels assembled since the COVID-19 pandemic hit.”
The first webinar was held on March 24. The series continues on Wednesdays through April 28, at 7:30 p.m. (except where noted). Presenters and topics include:
•April 14 (6 p.m.) – Monty Roberts, “Methodology, Training and Experiences”
•April 21 – Frank Lovato, Jr., “Equicizer”
•April 28 – Bernice Ende, “Travels, Trials, and Talk”
The series has limited availability and access to the entire series can be purchased for one fee of $25 for adults or $15 for youth under the age of 18.
