Hampton Classic Animal Adoption Day


$35,000 Matching Campaign for America’s At-Risk Horses
Lafitte De Muze Matching Campaign

Donations made to the EQUUS Foundation starting now through the conclusion of the Hampton Classic Horse Show will be matched by prize money won by EQUUS Foundation Equine Ambassador, Lafitte De Muze, and donated by his owner, Cheryl Olsten, up to $35,000.

That's $70,000 to help care for horses who have been the victim of abuse and neglect – and saved from being shipped off to slaughter, as well as horses at equine therapeutic centers who are enriching and improving the lives of people facing hardships, especially children, veterans and first responders. Learn more here. Donate here.

EQUUS Foundation Equine Ambassadors are sport horses whose owners donate a portion of their winnings in equestrian sport competitions to help ensure that all horses are safe, healthy, and treated with dignity as partners.

Rider's Closet Donation Trunk on the Move!
The Rider's Closet, founded by Georgina Bloomberg in 2006 and now an EQUUS Foundation program, will have its mobile tack trunk to collect new and gently used equestrian apparel to make available to riders and equestrian clubs and teams in need across the country, in the hope that more riders will be able to pursue their equestrian dreams. The donation tack trunk will be located at and hosted by Der Dau at their tent in the Boutique Garden for the remainder of the show.
