Debi Metcalfe, will be presenting “Horses Don’t Have Fingerprints” during the WEG, Tryon 2018.
Metcalfe is a horse theft victim who was first to send out a stolen horse report on the internet, subsequently recovering her horse Idaho 51 weeks after her theft and caught and prosecuted the thief. Metcalfe sees a different view of things when a horse is missing than most in the horse industry and is considered our national experts in the field of stolen and missing horses.
The person who first though of selling microchips directly to the horse owner online and implemented that plan on through the nonprofit organization she founded, Stolen Horse International, Inc., also known as NetPosse, works in the field, not the office. Her hands on experience gives insight that most do not or cannot have unless they work directly with victims and multiple law enforcement authorities.
Ms. Metcalfe reviews the top 10 things she has learned about the importance of equine identification. She’s a professional speaker, author, and the founder of the nonprofit organization Stolen Horse International, Inc., also known as NetPosse.com.
The list is based on her experience working with thousands of victims and horse owners over the last 21 years. From the why to the how this session will give you the basics of equine identification, one of the most misunderstood equine topics in 2018.
Ms. Metcalfe will also discuss how identification is the best way of safeguarding the identity of your horse, the misconceptions on each type of ID as well as the pros and cons of each.
When the unexpected happens, you and your horse will be together again with the help of permanent identification. Without proper means of identification, your horse may not have the ability to find their way home in the event of a theft or even a natural disaster.
