On Saturday, June 22nd, over 250 guests attended the EQUUS Foundation Benefit Luncheon featuring the $50,000 Fairfield Grand Prix, where they experienced "Horsepower" up close and personal! It was spectacular day of sun and light breezes, champagne by Chandon California, a silent auction, and delectable summer dining for a day of excitement and giving back.

"Everyone can be a Horse Protector," said Lynn Coakley, EQUUS Foundation President, in thanking the attendees. "You don't just have to adopt an at-risk horse to help us make a difference. Everyone here is helping to protect America's horses and helping to increase the opportunities for at-risk and transitioning horses to continue to thrive not only as athletes, but also as companions, teachers, and healers!"
