Horses Roared in Washington!

EQUUS Foundation was a sponsor of Kids Day at the Washington International Horse Show on Saturday, October 27, 2012.

Hundreds of families turned out to watch the equestrian competition and enjoy fun-filled activities like pony rides, a horseless horse show, and bracelet making provided compliments of Animal Planet.

They also showed their support for horses by proudly wearing the badge, "Horses ROAR".
