Our People

Helping horses through the compassion of people

The AAEP Foundation’s advisory council, officers and board of directors all serve as volunteers.  These groups of dedicated individuals work long hours for no pay in an effort to provide knowledge and direction for the Foundation.  As we like to say, our aim is to Find Answers and Funding Solutions that will allow the Foundation to meet its goals and mission.
