About this Webinar:

Join HETRA’s Equine Operations Manager, Shelby, for an in-depth discussion regarding the evaluation and intake of EAAT horses. There are a lot of vital factors to consider, including breed considerations, conformation, and personality. It is also important to talk time to truly assess program needs and how a new EAAT horse would fit. Shelby also discusses looking at trial periods and training programs.


  • Identify equines that may be suitable for your EAAT program
  • Develop a system of looking at equines that takes program needs and resources into account

Presented by Shelby Winnail, CTRI, ESMHL

Upon graduating with her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science, she took a full-time position at Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy (HETRA). She has since become a PATH Intl. CTRI, ESMHL, Mentor and is the current Nebraska State Representative. Shelby loves working hands on with participants and volunteers, but her passion lies with the horses. Shelby is driven by building and maintaining a therapy herd that is “healthy, happy, sane and sound”.
