Stepping Out for America’s Horses Campaign

Join the EQUUS Foundation for their kickoff virtual event! Walk, Run, Ride February 15-21, 2021, presented by Boston Private.

The EQUUS Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of “Stepping Out for America’s Horses,”  its inaugural annual campaign to safeguard the comfort and dignity of America’s horses throughout their lives.

“Stepping Out for America’s Horses” will feature a series of virtual and live events held in association with national sporting and recreational equestrian events throughout the year for you to demonstrate your athletic prowess and your philanthropic power.

One even coming up later this month is the Walk, Run, Ride from February 15 – 21.
