Celebrate The National Day of the Horse on Wednesday, December 13th!
“A Giving Day Dedicated to America’s Horses”
The EQUUS Foundation is celebrating the National Day of the Horse on December 13th with the $20,000 Lafitte De Muze Matching Gift Campaign thanks to EQUUS Foundation Equine Ambassador, Lafitte De Muze, his rider, Amanda Steege, and his owner, Cheryl Olsten. In 2004, Congress designated December 13th as the National Day of the Horse to celebrate the cultural, historic, and economic contributions that horses have made and continue to make.
Not only can donors double their impact by making a general donation or a donation to a specific EQUUS Foundation Guardian charity, but also Hilltop Bio is donating $5,000 in products to the Guardian charities that participate in the campaign. “We’re proud to support this initiative with our products while supporting Lafitte and his rider, Amanda Steege, as one of our sponsored riders and horses,” said Drobnis.
Hilltop Bio has also established the $2,500 Hilltop Bio Veterinary Scholarship which is reserved for a veterinary student enrolled in a veterinary college or university listed on the EQUUS Foundation’s Equine Education Network. Priority will be given to a veterinary student at Texas Tech University Veterinary School, where Hilltop Bio’s Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. David Dutton, teaches.
“The EQUUS Foundation is thrilled to welcome Hilltop Bio as its newest corporate partner,” said Lynn Coakley, EQUUS Foundation President. “It is only through engaging passionate supporters like Hilltop Bio that we are able to invest in effective programs that are finding homes for at-risk horses and horses in transition, providing a safe haven for aged horses, and increasing opportunities for more people to benefit from the magic and power of horses.”
