ABOUT THE EQUUS FOUNDATION, INC.

The EQUUS Foundation, Inc., was established in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity to raise public awareness of the value of the horse in society through education and the award of grants to charities that use the horse to benefit the public, promote horse welfare, and elevate the equestrian sport. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

The goal is to insure the horse's place in society for generations to come by supporting organizations that demonstrate the horse's value to people of all ages whether they come from a privileged background or a disadvantaged one. Horses contribute therapeutically in the magical way they empower and heal those who care for and ride these beautiful animals. Athletically, they team uniquely with men and women of all ages, allowing them to compete against each other equally.

Thanks to hundreds of individuals and organizations, this year, the Foundation will award over $300,000 in grants, bringing the total grant awards to over $1.1 million since the first grant awards in 2003.

Grants have been awarded to charities that:

- depend on horses therapeutically to help people - especially children - with life-threatening illness; with mental, emotional, and physical disabilities; or who are at-risk of succumbing to a life of violence; horses achieve, in many cases, what people and other animals have not been able to achieve.

- promote the health and welfare of the horse through veterinary research, rescue and rehabilitation; and

- elevate the equestrian sport as a whole by offering relief to equestrians in need and scholarships and grants to support the competition, training, and educational needs of equestrians.

The grants have been awarded to charities for therapy for individuals with physical, emotional, behavioral, and learning disabilities, individuals with life-threatening or other serious illnesses, and "at-risk" youth, for scholarships, financial aid, riding apparel and equipment, certified riding instructors, transportation, and horse care; horse rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and retirement, for feed, supplements, tack, grooming supplies, horse gear, farrier, veterinary care, equipment, and capital improvements; veterinary education and research; equine ambulance services; and enhancing the equestrian sport, for scholarships, awards, youth involvement, relief for equestrians in need, and programs to promote public education and awareness.
