Everyone can #RideForHorses - You can too!

Whether you are a competing equestrian, a pleasure rider, or someone who loves horses ---- everyone can do something to ensure that America's horses live in comfort, and with purpose and dignity. Horses are amazing athletes but they are also incredible companions, teachers and healers.

We challenge you!





Make A Video

Make a video with your equine friend holding the EQUUS Foundation #RideForHorses sign. If you do not have a horse to appear with you in your video, you can imitate a horse by stomping, whinnying, snorting and eating a carrot! Be creative and fun!

*Here's an idea of what you may want to say:
"I, [your name], Ride For Horses on behalf of the EQUUS Foundation. I want all of America's horses to live in comfort, and with purpose and dignity. I challenge [names of at least three friends you are challenging] to Ride For Horses."

*More to say . . .
• We want your video to be unique and creative and in your own voice. Tell us why you think it is important to be part of the EQUUS Foundation's #RideForHorses Campaign and why horses are special to you and deserve our protection.
• You can also say in your video that you gave a donation to the EQUUS Foundation and encourage your viewers to also make a donation at equusfoundation.org/give. Every donation makes a difference!
• As the only national animal welfare charity in the United States 100% dedicated to horse welfare and the horse-human bond, the EQUUS Foundation's mission is to keep America's horses safe, working and loved. 130,000 American horses are transported over the border to slaughter each year. Most are healthy and have untapped potential not just as athletes but also as companions, teachers and healers.
• The EQUUS Foundation supports a network of equine charities across the United States that are focused on protecting America's horses at risk, and repurposing these horses in new careers, especially those serving people with special needs and veterans returning home from the trauma of war.
• As horse lovers, equestrians and people who work with and care about horses, it is critical that we step up now and take care of these noble animals that need our protection.
• Let’s DO THIS – Show us YOUR #RideForHorses video!!!!!

• Use the hashtags: #RideForHorses and #EQUUSFoundation.
• You can post something like, "We are proud to #RideForHorses for the #EQUUSFoundation to keep America's horses safe and loved!" Or something like, "We are proud to #RideforHorses for the #EQUUS Foundation to share in the magic of horses and to keep America's horses safe and loved."
• These are just examples but any customized message you wish to post that uses the hashtag #RideForHorses, mentions the EQUUS Foundation, and says why you are taking part in the campaign (why horses mean something to you) will be great!
