Platinum Performance® will also be donating $2,500 in gift cards to the EQUUS Foundation for the benefit of equine charities involved with the rescue, rehabilitation, retraining and re-homing of horses and those providing equine assisted therapy and activities to people with special needs.

Hardin gives all the horses under her care Platinum Performance to keep them healthy, sound, and help support the longevity of their competitive career.
