Nominations are now being accepted for the EQUUS Foundation’s highest honor. The 2022 Humanitarian Award will be presented at the Pegasus Awards Dinner on January 10, 2023, during the US Equestrian Annual Meeting in Lexington, Kentucky.
The Humanitarian Award recipient will have the opportunity to select an equine charity on the Foundation’s Equine Welfare Network to receive a $5,000 grant from the EQUUS Foundation.
The EQUUS Foundation Humanitarian Award was jointly established by the EQUUS Foundation and US Equestrian in 2009 to celebrate the humanitarian achievements made by members of the equine community. 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, the recipient of this award will be an individual or group of individuals who has devoted considerable personal time to making the quality of life of our equine partners paramount.
Nominations close on November 15
