PATH International
EQUINE OF THE YEAR

The EQUUS Foundation is proud to support its Alliance Member PATH International by co-sponsoring the PATH International Equine of the Year Award with Purina. The award honors the equine who best defines the heart and soul of Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT). The recipients personify the willingness, attitude, and diversity of talents that these hard-working partners bring to EAAT and all it stands for.

The award recipient is not only honored at the PATH International Conference and Annual Meeting but also inducted into the Horse Stars Hall of Fame, a joint program of the EQUUS Foundation and the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), which celebrates the extraordinary talent of horses and their magical bond with people. The EQUUS Foundation also awards a $1,000 grant to an equine charity on its Equine Welfare Network selected by the owner of the recipient.
