Equine Research Foundation Horse Learning & Behavior


VWH Vaughn W. Henry has been consulting and presenting seminars on management programs since 1977. Trained as an animal scientist at the University of Illinois, Henry received his B.Sc. in Agriculture Science in 1973 and a 1974 M.Sc. in Animal Science emphasizing equine nutrition and reproductive physiology. While teaching for 11 years at the college level, Henry established an advisory service business for owners of horse farms, ranches and family businesses seeking improved techniques to reduce expenses and enhance management control of those operations. As he pursued additional schooling, Henry was recognized as an outstanding educator and lecturer on a wide variety of topics, including computerization of small businesses, staff training, improved management of horse farm operations and designing multi-generational programs to pass business assets to heirs. He advises charitable and non-profit organizations on deferred gifting and fund-raising and has a client base with a wide range of family backgrounds, including some "Forbes 400" individuals.

In addition to his practical and technical background in agriculture/animal sciences and small business operations, Henry has received extensive training in the estate conservation and financial services areas. He has a highly specialized estate planning practice and is also a member of the Central Illinois Planned Giving Council - National Committee on Planned Giving, the Sangamon Valley Estate Planning Council, and numerous trade and professional financial services organizations.
