2008 Wild Horse and Burro Summit

In case any of you are interested, I wanted to post some information that I received recently through an email about an upcoming Wild Horse and Burro Summit here in Las Vegas. I am not yet confirmed to attend, but will know more about my schedule in the next few days. I have posted a direct link to their website below and included the body of the original email for you to refer back to as well.

2008 Wild Horse and Burro Summit

Email -
Lantry, SD- With more than 33,000 healthy wild horses threatened with
euthanasia by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the International Society
for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB), Wild Horses Forever, and
Marisa Morin will hold one of the most informative and enlightening wild
horse summits ever to be conducted.

The summit will bring together the leading experts in the world of equine
behavior, genetics, research, and range management. The focus of the summit
will address the current crisis facing America’s wild horses’ threatened
existence on public lands and will bring forth proposed solutions.

Along with the many equine scientists presenting, there will be panels
composed of interested wild horse groups yet to be announced. “It is the
desire of our group to have as many diverse participants on the panel to
create an enlightening discussion,” says Karen Sussman. The conference’s
theme will be “Using our Diversity as a Strength to Preserve and Protect
Wild Horses.”

The summit will be held at South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on
October 11th and 12th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., culminating with a media event
on the morning of October 13th.

Interested parties should send their names, addresses, and E-mail address to
