Inaugural Stepping Out Campaign Surpasses 4.2 Million Steps for America's Horses

The EQUUS Foundation is proud to announce the results of its inaugural Stepping Out for America's Horses Campaign presented by Boston Private that took place on February 15-21, 2021. Registrants nationwide took over 4.2 million steps to raise awareness and funds for America's horses in need of homes.

"The EQUUS Foundation would like to extend our gratitude to Boston Private and the Woodson Family for sponsoring our inaugural campaign," said Lynn Coakley, EQUUS Foundation President. "We didn't know what to expect but are thrilled with the results. We owe special thanks to our Professional, Amateur, and Junior Equestrian Athletes who dramatically expanded our reach."
