Equine Training in WV for ACO, Law Enforcement & the Dept of Ag (Kentucky and Ohio are welcome to attend)

This year, June 1st from 11am to 4pm, Heart of Phoenix will host our 4th Annual Animal Control Training for WV, Ohio and Kentucky.

This class will cover the handling of equines and livestock. It will cover legal considerations for cases involving horses and livestock. There is an expanded “hands on” portion this year to be sure officers will be able to safely handle these large animals when needed.

We offer West Virginia’s Statewide Animal control and law enforcement training program each year in the spring at no cost to officers or counties or state workers.

This program receives In-Hours credit for officers statewide (WV) and provides never before attainable equine only neglect and cruelty training, as well as handling safety training. We are in our 4th year of this program.
