Horses are magical and powerful. They not only inspire us as amazing athletes, they also enrich our lives as companions, nurture the next generation of equestrians, and perform miracles for people with special needs, especially children and veterans. Your donation will help America'.'s horses at risk, and those potentially risk when their competitive careers are over. Fund a horse's future!

The EQUUS Foundation is the only national charity in the United States 100% dedicated to ensuring the welfare of America's horses and fostering the horse-human bond that has existed throughout history.

Our mission is to protect America's horses, share the magic and power of horses with as many people as possible, especially people with special needs, and educate the public about the horse's unique ability to empower, teach and heal. We believe horses enrich the human body and spirit.
