Grandin had this to say about the Summit:
“The Best Horse Practices Summit, with its ingenuous blend of academic and arena presentations, will help people understand the horse’s world. It offers the horse’s perspective.
“For decades, I’ve traveled the world helping humans understand animals and giving people tools and mandates for improving animals’ lives. We raised them. They deserve our respect. The Best Horse Practices Summit has the same goal and mission.”
