Most horse charities have had to close doors to volunteers and cancel much-needed fundraising, but horses still need to be fed and cared for. Your support is needed now!

Even though we all would love our lives to get back to normal so that we can enjoy spring, the outdoors, our friends and families, and our horses, we all must adhere to the advice of the experts. The sooner we adhere, the sooner we can affect a positive outcome.

Keep your Spirits Up!

These are troubling times for all of us & many among us are facing serious financial hardships. Thank you for your courage and grace in facing what seems like insurmountable obstacles. You are not alone! We will make it through this together!

At the core of our mission is our commitment to invest in equine charities across the nation that are dedicated to saving and re-homing America's at-risk horses and providing opportunities for people to partner with horses to improve their physical, emotional, and social well-being.

Most of these charities have had to close their doors to their volunteers and cancel much-needed fundraising events and programs -- the lifeblood to sustain their operations. But, their horses still need to be fed and cared for.

Hope on the Horizon

We are working hard to reach our fundraising goal for our fiscal year ending August 31, 2020. Please be assured that we, like so many other organizations, will be creative in finding ways to support the horses we love that need us and depend on us every day.

We are more committed than ever to continue to invest in our Guardian charities to ensure that donations are being used for programs with the greatest impact. Only EQUUS Foundation Guardians -- equine charities that have undergone our rigorous vetting process to demonstrate that they are dedicated to the highest standards of horse care and are fully transparent -- are eligible to receive grants from the EQUUS Foundation.

Stay safe, strong and hopeful!
