EQUUS Foundation Luncheon
On behalf of the EQUUS Foundation and the Fairfield County Hunt Club, we hope that you, your family, friends, and colleagues are healthy and safe and that we can all look forward to enjoying the 2021 Fairfield County Hunt Club June Benefit Horse Show in person this year.

As you may know, the EQUUS Foundation was founded initially to support local equine charities in Connecticut and New York with the funding from a luncheon held in association with the Grand Prix at the Fairfield June Show. Our first luncheon was held in 2003 and was held thereafter until last year when the show was cancelled because of COVID-19. Since 2003, we have awarded nearly $5 million in grants to equine charities nationwide.

While we will not be holding an EQUUS Foundation Grand Prix Luncheon in 2021, class sponsorships are available. Please click here to make your donation and select the class you wish to sponsor.

We are planning to hold an online auction in association with the horse show. All class sponsors and auction donors will be recognized online starting in June and on composite signage onsite at the show.

We are also thrilled to announce two new opportunities for you to participate and support the EQUUS Foundation in association with the show this year - our second Stepping Out for America's Horses campaign presented by Fairfield Equine Associates and the $1,000 EQUUS Foundation Charity Team Challenge presented by Corro.

We want to thank our supporters -- old and new -- and are pleased to recognize their contributions as members of our Honorary Committee.



EQUUS Foundation


Thanks to our sponsor, Fairfield Equine Associates, our second Stepping Out for America's Horses Campaign will be held during the Fairfield horse show week, June 22-26, 2021.

The Fairfield Stepping Out Campaign will directly benefit the horses of EQUUS Foundation Guardian charities in Northeast Region, including the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

It's easy to participate! First, you set your personal fitness goal for the number of steps you pledge to take during the show week by walking, running, riding or other activities and second, you select your favorite horse from among the participating EQUUS Foundation Guardian charities to fundraise for.

The Stepping Out Campaign is a great way to demonstrate your athletic prowess and philanthropic power while raising awareness and funds to safeguard the comfort and dignity of America's horses throughout their lives.

Stay Tuned!
Advance Registration will open on June 1st.
