20th Anniversary Celebration
The Sky's The Limit!
We are excited to announce the largest and most ambitious fundraising campaign in our 20-year history. We have set the bar at $2 million to double our investment in equine charities making a difference in the lives of America's horses and double our endowment.
Horses bring joy to millions of people, and help make those with the deepest of wounds whole again, but tens of thousands of horses are victims of abuse and neglect each year.
During our 2022 fiscal year that ended in August, we were able to impact the lives of over 6,000 horses through our programs and grant awards. While this represents an increase of over 1,000 horses from 2021, there are still over 20,000 shipped across our borders for slaughter each year.
NO HORSE should be subjected to this inhumane fate that awaits them – especially because there are solutions within our reach.
We are committed to reducing the number of horses sent across our borders for slaughter with the goal to reduce the number to ZERO. The best way to help these horses is to transition them into a new life, role and purpose by providing viable options to owners when their owners cannot, or no longer wish to, care for them.
Along with competitive and recreational programs involving horses, programs providing equine-assisted therapeutic services offer endless career opportunities for horses in transition. Horses have the amazing ability to inspire, empower and heal.
