Joni Werthan, President of Warioto Farm, said, "These adoptions, made possible through the EQUUS Foundation, has truly made a lifetime dream a reality.

Since I was a child visiting New York City and seeing the carriage horses, I've been passionate about giving them Forever Homes. The EQUUS Foundation "Forever Farms" program has made this possible."

"We have been thrilled to work with Warioto and their outstanding compassion and ethic in protecting all horses at all stages of their lives," said Valerie Angeli, EQUUS Foundation, VP Engagement.
