EQUUS Foundation Announces Results of 2017 #RideForHorses Competition

#RideForHorses is the nationwide effort of the EQUUS Foundation to inspire and engage everyone who cares about horses to help ensure the welfare of all of America's horses. The $25 membership helps protect America's horses at risk of abuse, neglect and slaughter - and provide opportunities for horses to change peoples' lives, especially people with special needs.

For US Equestrian members, participation also includes the opportunity for recognition in the EQUUS Foundation/US Equestrian Best Performance Competition. What sets this competition apart from other competitive awards programs is that it is uniquely designed to recognize consistency in performance.

The EQUUS Foundation wishes to thank all who participated in the competition ending on November 30, 2017 and congratulate the winners. The Best Overall Junior, Amateur, and Professional will have grants awarded in their names to deserving charities operating at the highest standards of horse care.
