Facebook, Instagram and Twitter — and challenge your friends to do the same.
• Take a photo or make a video with your equine friend. If you do not have a horse to appear with you in your photo or video, you can imitate a horse by stomping, whinnying, snorting, and eating a carrot! Be creative and fun!
• We want your post to be unique and in your own voice. Tell us why horses are special to you and deserve our protection, or you can say something like:
"I, [your name], support the EQUUS Foundation. I want all of America's horses to live in comfort, and with purpose and dignity. I challenge [names of at least three friends you are challenging] to join me."
"I, [your name], support the EQUUS Foundation. I want to share the magic of horses with as many people as possible. I challenge [names of at least three friends you are challenging] to join me."
"I, [your name], support the EQUUS Foundation. I challenge [names of at least three friends you are challenging] to join me and donate at equusfoundation.org/star. Every donation makes a difference!"
• Post your photo or video to social media, tagging #EQUUSFoundation and the friends you are challenging.
More to say:
• As the only national animal welfare charity in the United States 100% dedicated to horse welfare and the horse-human bond, the EQUUS Foundation's mission is to protect America's horses and strengthen the bond between horses and people. Thousands of American horses are transported over the border to slaughter each year. Most are healthy and have untapped potential not just as athletes but also as companions, teachers, and healers.
• The EQUUS Foundation is dedicated to inspiring equine organizations across America to operate at the highest level of horse care and use - and inspiring horse lovers to be horse protectors.
• The EQUUS Foundation focuses its efforts on dramatically increasing the number of adoptions of America's horses in transition, reducing the number of horses potentially at risk for abuse and neglect, increasing the number of horses participating in Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) and the availability of EAAT to the special needs population.
• As horse lovers, equestrians and people who work with and care about horses, it is critical that we step up now and take care of these noble animals that need our protection.
