Houses for Horses: A Dream Equestrian Property Makes Dreams Come True for America's At-Risk Horses!

"Every year, the lives of thousands of America's horses are cut short simply because they are out of work. We can do better," said Mike Gaynor, who, with his wife, Kerry, were the inspiration for the new EQUUS Foundation Houses for Horses program - our named grant program for a special group of horse property owners committed to preserving open space for horses and safeguarding the comfort and dignity of America's horses throughout their lives.

With the desire to inspire philanthropy for horse welfare through the sale of equestrian properties, the Gaynors are pledging 1% of the sale of their multi-million dollar, impeccably restored equestrian property to the EQUUS Foundation.

The Michael and Kerry Gaynor Houses for Horses Grant

Houses for Horses - Gaynors The infatuation with horses usually begins at an early age with a pony ride, but for Mike Gaynor, it was much later in life.

When he first saw the Central Park Rangers, a unit of full-time and seasonal uniformed mounted police officers who enforce parks department rules and regulations, on patrol, Mike became a volunteer ranger too and, with his wife Kerry, set out to have their own horses!

Being 6'4", the logical choice was Clydesdales. They chose the Wolffer Estate Stables in Sagaponack, New York, to be home for their Clydesdales, Mike, Ike and Sam.

As their love for horses grew, Mike and Kerry set out to preserve and restore one of the last remaining original potato farms in Sagaponack, owned by the same family for generations, situated directly across from Wolffer Estate Stables on Narrow Lane East to keep open land available for horses.
