This organization also offers many wonderful recognition programs including a humanitarian award (focused on equine humanitarian achievements) that is jointly sponsored by EQUUS and The United States Equestrian Federation.
Per their website: “The EQUUS Foundation, Inc., a federally tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, is dedicated to improving the quality of life of horses, enabling the therapeutic use of horses for those with special needs, fostering the horse-human bond, and educating the public on the horse’s unique ability to empower, teach and heal. Grants are awarded only to charitable organizations that are classified by the Internal Revenue Service as 501(c)(3) public charities, and in some instances, government agencies or entities. All organizations must meet all our eligibility requirements to apply for a grant.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — September 25, 2015 — GOSHEN, CA — Western Milling announced today that it has voluntarily recalled 50 lb bags of Western Blend horse feed, LOT 5251, manufactured on September 8, 2015. This voluntary recall was initiated by Western Milling after it learned that an ingredient in the feed in question may contain monensin, an ionophore. According to the FDA, clinical signs of ionophore poisoning in horses vary depending on the dosage ingested, but can include poor appetite and feed refusal of the grain product, diarrhea, weakness, rapid heart rate, labored breathing, decreased exercise tolerance, depression, wobbly gait, colic, sweating, recumbency, and sudden death. The first clinical signs are often noted from 12 to 72 hours after ingesting a toxic dose and the clinical signs may linger up to about 8 days. Permanent cardiac damage is possible in horses which showed adverse effects, but then recovered.

With the American mustang crisis in the news worldwide, award-winning filmmaker, James Anaquad-Kleinert brings his star- studded environmental film, Wild Horses & Renegades to National attention. In the ﬁlm, Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Viggo Mortense, Raoul Trujillo, Daryl Hannah and Dances with Wolves author Michael Blake join with former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) to highlight how the great symbol of the American West is being purposefully driven to extinction by a corrupt Bureau of Land Management. The documentary captures the corporate beneﬁts of wild horse roundups, including clearing land for Uranium mining claims, oil and gas pipelines and corporate cattle grazing. As Jim Baca (former Director of the Bureau of Land Management) states in Wild Horses & Renegades: “Our Public Lands are run by the oil, mining and livestock industries and it’s their way or the highway”.
Cowboy and family man, Clay Nannini, shares insight into the value of preserving the American Mustang while introducing his children to this icon of American history, and a legacy worth protecting.

Tallahassee,FL (April 22, 2015) “Who knew?” says Raymond Petterson, President of Sox For Horses, Inc. “When I envisioned a summer sock for horses, I focused on an effective fly barrier. I knew, if they were to be used during the heat of summer, they had to be cool on the legs. That was a given. As I learned more about yarns and fibers, I was able to take that concept to even more practical applications, by choosing moisture-managing and silver-embedded fibers.”
