Challenge

There are an estimated 200,000 unwanted horses in the US. Tragically, many are slaughtered. Instead, these horses can be rescued & rehabilitated. Many can be re-trained as therapy horses to help serve the more than 50 million people with disabilities. One in 88 children lives with Autism. One in 4 veterans have PTSD. Our challenge is to make equine therapy available to more people.

Solution

The mission of The EQUUS Foundation AKA Horse Charities of America is to improve the quality of life of horses, foster the use of horses to enrich the lives of people in need and educate the public about the horse's unique ability to empower, teach and heal.
A horse with a home and a purpose is a happy horse! The EQUUS Foundation helps support more than 900 horse rescues and equine therapy charities across the United States. These facilities are hard at work every day not only rescuing and rehabbing neglected and abused horses but also tapping into the power of horses to help heal people with special needs. We make sure they are operating at the highest standards for horse care & use.

Long-Term Impact

Our goal is to ensure the proper care and use of horses, and for as many people as possible to benefit from their unique ability to empower, teach, and heal. Can you make a horse smile? You bet you can! Support the life-changing work that horses do every day!
