Nominations open for 2012 EQUUS Foundation Humanitarian Award


Field of Horses
Nominations are now open for the The EQUUS Foundation Humanitarian Award. The EQUUS Foundation Humanitarian Award was jointly established by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) and the The EQUUS Foundation in 2009 to celebrate the humanitarian achievements made by a member of the equine community. Specifically, the goal of this humanitarian honor is to spotlight and exalt the selfless dedication one individual or a group of individuals has made, whether on a regional or national scale. The deadline for nominations is November 9.

The award will be presented at the Pegasus Awards Dinner on Saturday, January 19, 2013, during the USEF Annual Meeting. The recipient of the Humanitarian Award will receive a $5,000 grant from The EQUUS Foundation to be awarded to the equestrian or horse-related charity of his or her choice.

From improving the health and welfare of the horse to promoting and expanding the general public’s appreciation and respect of the diverse role of horses not just in equestrian sports but also as aides to the general public, the recipient of this award is someone who has devoted considerable personal time to making the quality of life of our equine partners paramount.
