Today, tens of thousands of horses and working equids in North America and around the world are in need of proper health care and welfare.

Your investment makes an immediate impact because thanks to the Foundation’s parent organization, the AAEP, 100% of your contributions are used specifically to improve the welfare of the horse and not used for any administrative or fundraising costs.
