A Home for Every Horse was created in 2011 as the result of a partnership between the Equine Network, the nation’s leading publisher of equine-related content, and The American Horse Council’s Unwanted Horse Coalition. The program provides a resource for 501(c)(3) horse rescue organizations. The ‘A Home for Every Horse’ program helps connect rescue horses in need of homes, in over 600 rescues across the United States, with people looking for horses. To make the connection between rescue horses and homes, rescue organizations can list their horses for free on Equine.com, the world’s largest horse marketplace, where they can be seen by 300,000 visitors each month. Rescue organizations involved with A Home for Every Horse are also provided with many great benefits from the sponsors involved with the program. They specifically work with sponsors to help provide much needed assistance to rescues around the country. In recent years, Purina has donated a half ton of feed to eligible rescues through A Home for Every Horse. Absorbine, WeatherBeeta and Tractor Supply, provide many great donations to rescues that are featured events attended by A Home for Every Horse staff each year. Equine rescue organizations are overwhelmed with taking care of the ever-growing homeless horse population. A Home for Every Horse is dedicated to bridging the gap between rescue organizations and people that can help. Through A Home for Every Horse, over 1,000 horses are adopted annually, along with many others who receive assistance from the A Home for Every Horse sponsors. Participating as a sponsor of A Home for Every Horse, sponsors are not only able to help horses that are seeking their forever home, they are also able to involve the consumer market in helping rescue horses around the country.

A Home for Every Horse, providing loving rehabilitation, nursing and hospice care for equines with medical needs, and helping to find sanctuaries for those at risk.
Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, I am a 22-year-old who could be described as ambitious, hardworking, and a perfectionist. I enjoy being challenged with new tasks, as I believe discomfort allows one to grow and learn. I enjoy teamwork, but I am also capable of working on my own. I believe that communication is an important aspect of any relationship, especially professional ones, as it doesn’t leave any room for errors or misunderstandings. Therefore, I pride myself on being a skilled communicator. I am organised, goal-driven, and I find it very hard to set a task down once I have started. I may not have the most extroverted personality, but I do enjoy socialising with others in any setting. I recently graduated with a BA in English and Communication Science. While completing my degree, I worked as an editorial intern at Highbury Media, where I gained first-hand experience in editing, publishing, and social media management. I was also able to sharpen my writing skills, which came in handy as I went on to work as a freelance writer for ClubX Magazine for over a year. Even though I do not have years of experience behind me, I am, however, eager to learn. And a fresh mind is always a benefit. When it comes to my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I am also currently learning Italian and intend on tackling many other foreign languages.
I am a God fearing individual, and I’m also a father to two beautiful kids, a boy and a girl. I worked for Tekkie Town as a Sales Assistant and I was chosen as the best Sales person for the entire Mpumalanga province. I also worked for the Department of agriculture as a Data capture. I have a passion for sports, football is one of my favourites and one day I wish I can own a soccer team. While I was in high school, I always wanted to be a lawyer but due to financial constraints I could not become one. My interest in the justice system came when I realised that the late former president Mr Nelson Mandela was also a lawyer representing his people. I wish one day I could give back to my community and its people because my community gave us the likes of the late Steve Bantu Biko, one of the BCM Members who fought for the people of South Africa. My community is one of the underdeveloped communities of this country, but I know that one day all of this will change because I know that with education anything is possible. When a child is educated communities will change for the better and if one community changes, then our country will change for the better as well and poverty will be no more. Education topped with one’s perseverance is the key to a bright future for all. With this pandemic people have lost their jobs and in some households you find that no one is working and people resort to drugs and alcohol, some get depressed to a point of taking their own lives. If we can start developing jobs for people, our continent would become a better place for us all. Being part of an initiative that supports the empowerment of those less privileged is one of my greatest wishes. I will be glad if all my wishes do come through because nothing is as important as education and hard work, and an educated country means a better world for us all.
The Protector of Horses and Other Animals "All the Horses in the World" is unique in its kind. Through the Association we raise awareness about animal abuse, we feed the inhabitants of our abandoned and abused animal shelter, and we guarantee their veterinary care. El Refugio, for its part, has more than 50,000 m2, which makes us one of the largest refuges in Europe. In it, we take care of more than 200 animals including horses, dogs, cats, ferrets, turtles, turkeys and chickens that live in semi-freedom, choosing where and with whom they want to be. We don't like cages. We are Concordia and Virginia, the two sisters who run All the Horses in the World. We are pioneers in the fight for the protection of horses and the creation and management of a refuge with very special characteristics. We have searched for a thousand solutions to "cure" animal abuse in Spain, and we have come to the conclusion that Fight and Love are the two sides of the same coin that allow us to move forward. However, as in all great stories, there is a third essential element: the people who support you and believe in you. It all started about 20 years ago when Concordia came to Malaga and began to find many abandoned horses. He looked for a place where he could house them, currently the Shelter for All the Horses in the World, which is one of the largest Shelters in Europe and, in fact, a Home for the animals (dogs, cats, ferrets, turtles, chickens...) that they cross our path and suffer mistreatment or abuse of any kind by human beings. Soon after, he called his family. She felt lonely, overwhelmed (due to the large number of animals that needed help) and lacked financial resources. So, without much thought, our parents and I sold our house in Madrid, left friends, work and came to Malaga. My sister and I sat down to talk. We had two options: continue helping (with family support) the animals that my sister had already rescued and "stop", or become a non-profit association that would allow us to extend our help to all kinds of animals and, above all, fight for their lives to change. We chose the second option: dedicate our lives to animal protection, giving up many things, without looking back. This is how the CYD Santa María Association emerged, currently known as the Protector of All Horses in the World. Our greatest success, without a doubt, is every life saved, every suffering avoided. But we are also especially proud of our participation in the drafting of Royal Decree 804/2011, thanks to which we managed to get horses recognized as domestic pets, expanding their legal protection, something that no one had bothered about until that moment. Since then, our work has garnered numerous awards, in addition to having been awarded with the highest awards granted by the Civil Guard, SEPRONA, the Official College of Veterinarians of Malaga (V de Oro), etc. But unfortunately, there is still much to do. There are still people who kill the puppies or "leave" them in the garbage, as if it didn't matter... We have also been fighting for years to guarantee the Welfare of carriage horses. We have achieved some improvements, but, without a doubt, insufficient. To really get to know each other, the most important thing is that you know that we are the people who are going to continue fighting tirelessly until the situation of the animals improves. I hope we live to see it. It is difficult to fight, to survive, without help. Thank God we have always had good people who have been encouraged to be part of this History, Our History. At All the Horses in the World, we firmly believe that loving someone implies taking care of them, respecting them and, when they suffer, putting their needs before yours. We have given up many dreams to continue helping them and thus be able to achieve our most important dream, which is that, one day, animals obtain a status that allows them to live alongside humans while being respected. Join the Family of the Protector and Refuge of All the Horses of the World to help the animals that need it most.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) was founded in 1954 by a group of 11 charter members who saw that together they could direct the focus of equine veterinary medicine. Today, the AAEP, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., at the Kentucky Horse Park, represents an educated group of men and women who cover a broad range of veterinarian equine disciplines, breeds and associations. Nearly 9,300 veterinarians and veterinary students in 61 countries are members of the AAEP. The AAEP's mission is to improve the health and welfare of the horse, to further the professional development of its members, and to provide resources and leadership for the benefit of the equine industry. These principles have guided the AAEP for more than six decades in the activities and services it provides. The AAEP conducts regular strategic planning every three to four years in order to establish priorities and set direction for the association over the current planning horizon. Informed by the results of the 2018 membership survey, the AAEP board of directors held its most recent strategic planning session in July 2019. The 2020-2023 plan was formally approved in December 2019. The three primary goals of the 2020-2023 AAEP Strategic Plan are focused on the following: 1. The Profession. AAEP will work to improve upon the current equine practice model in an effort to improve the practice life of its members and retention within the profession.

I board people’s family pets for prolonged stays, preferably to ease the stress of worrying about their pets in cages. I have been doing the boarding for almost a year now and have a repeat doggo whom I love very much and his month stay is always a blessing. I fostered puppies and cats for shelters and they’ve all been adopted, I rescued a Staffordshire terrier from an outreach with a friend and healed him from the horrible mange he had and he got adopted by someone who flew from JHB and drove back up and now he lives the king life he deserves.
The Andalusian Rescue Centre for Horses (ARCH) was founded in 2009 by a small group of horse lovers, all of whom had experience working with rescued animals. Rather than follow in the footsteps of so many charitable organizations who take on far too many rescued animals – reducing their capacity to provide each case with maximum support – with our limited resources we chose to take on fewer cases, ensuring each animal receives the attention they require. Initially, we tried to limit the numbers of rescues, thus ensuring that we could offer the best care and rehabilitation. When we opened, we took in mostly abandoned horses and donkeys – they appeared tied up at our gate. However, with the arrival of the financial crisis things changed, thousands of beautiful, fit young horses were sent to slaughter as their owners and breeders were unable to feed the mares or sell the foals. Lorries were queuing up at the slaughterhouse door. Soon our policy of limiting our intake went out of the window as we desperately tried to rescue as many equines as we could, each one a victim of the economic downturn. During the first few years of our existence, we often had to appeal to our supporters and sponsors for help as our rescue numbers grew. To everyone who has supported us over the years, we are eternally grateful. We anticipate a similar situation to the previous financial crisis once the impacts of the coronavirus take effect, so our mission remains as important as ever. With the improvement in animal cruelty legislation, we are able to prosecute abusive owners. Almost all our rescued equines now come from Seprona, the environmental law enforcement, having been confiscated or found abandoned. We work closely with our animal rights lawyer, Aritz Toribio, Seprona, and local equine vets to rescue animals in danger and take their owners to court. It is an uphill struggle to ensure that judges and public prosecutors are enforcing the new laws as intended, but with time the message will get through that animals have rights, and they must uphold them. The legal process is time-consuming, costly and ongoing – all donations are very gratefully received to help us fight for justice. The ARCH team of volunteers has grown over the years, and we are deeply grateful to each and every volunteer.

In this day and age of technology, advanced equipment is a necessity. Their ability to accurately diagnose and treat patients is magnified many-fold by judicial use of appropriate equipment. Like any large hospital, the support staff is indispensable to obtaining the mission of Arizona Equine. Their exceptional staff members help with the day-to-day chores involved in running the hospital. Without them, the clinic could not function properly. Arizona Equine started in 1984 with construction of the main hospital. In 1991 a larger barn was added to provide more inside stalls and room for the nuclear scintigraphy facility. In 1996 outside pens were added to give them a place to house horses that did not require intensive care. In 1999, they added another treatment room, more doctor’s offices, and more storage room. The physical facility has proven to be very functional and is a great asset in helping Arizona Equine provide exceptional veterinary care. In 2005, they added a state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) room. MRI is superior to all other modalities in the diagnoses of soft tissue and bony issues in the limb. Arizona Equine Medical & Surgical Centre offers a range of equine diagnostic and treatment services at this facility in Gilbert, Arizona. As the largest centre of its kind in the desert southwest region we offer ultrasonography, nuclear scintigraphy, MRI, endoscopy and computed and digital radiology.

Black Diamond Equine offers comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for lameness. A detailed physical exam is the first step in the process. Each lameness exam is different depending on the history, presentation and physical exam of the horse. In general, you can expect their veterinarians to palpate the horse’s body and limbs, observe the horse at a walk, trot and canter, and perform limb flexions. They may recommend diagnostic services such as ultrasound or digital radiography to further assist in identifying the source of lameness or performance issues. Chiropractic care has become an integral part of holistic health care for both humans and animal health. Equine chiropractic focuses on the preservation and health of the neuro-skeletal system. It is designed to work with the natural ability of the body to maintain and heal itself. Chiropractic care is used to treat soreness, pain, or problems with gait and movement. Treatment benefits include enhanced function, performance and quality of life. Keeping the neuro-skeletal system healthy before symptoms begin helps not only the older horse, but athletes and younger horses as well.

We are a charitable organisation safeguarding the welfare of all horses and ponies. We not only provide sanctuary to animals who have been mistreated, but we are also a valuable resource to horse lovers everywhere. We have been operating for many years and celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2012. Recently, we celebrate 40 years at the Brownbread Horse Rescue centre in the high Weald of Sussex. In about 1974 one of our fields of 10 acres had so many ant hills that it was almost impossible to use farm machinery on it, so we ploughed it up and re-seeded with selected grass seeds and clovers. This was the only field of the 60 acres that was ever disturbed. Consequently, the majority of the farm has been down to pasture, with some of the hay fields being cropped for hay late in the season. This management of the land has resulted in the farm having one of the highest numbers of flora and fauna species for any Wealden meadow farm. Yes, throughout the summer the fields are a blaze of multi-colours teeming with the buzz of myriads of insects. After 38 years, even the 10-acre field has reverted to a rich pasture of variable delights for the rescued horses. Of course, we keep down the ragwort whose seeds are very long-lived, but we also leave those few ragwort plants that have the cinnamon caterpillars munching away; biological control is always preferred and those moths will do a sterling job next year; let's hope they hang around. The government’s department, “Natural England” has visited over several years and wondered excitedly at the fervent, rich pasture, so much so that they are now putting the farm into the higher level scheme. Oh, yes, this means certain requirements in the way we manage the farm, but these are usually common sense, like not cutting hedges when birds start nesting but, otherwise, more or less carrying on what we have been doing successfully over the years. One of the requirements for entering the scheme was that the archaeological interests, if any, on the farm should be researched.

Born and bred in beautiful Cape Town, mom to a long-awaited, witty, (inherited from me of course!), amazing, lively little 5-year-old girl, 2 dogs and 2 cats, 'my rescue children'. Married to Tomy, a senior digital content producer hailing from Tennenbronn, Germany. He is as introvert as I am extrovert – the scale balances beautifully. In my spare time (which is limited!) I sketch, paint, and try my hand at baking, while completing a mini-thesis in psychology. University after high school was not an option. I am also a seasoned HR professional, with a passion for people and process, building and maintaining great relationships form the foundation of both who I am, and what I do. And it’s a solid foundation. Hailing from the Pharmaceutical industry, I entered the world of investments about 14 years ago, where after joining as Office Manager, I moved into HR and have been in the HR sphere since. My journey has taken me on many a bumpy road, however, being a glass-half-full type, seasoned by an interesting childhood, and a solid determination to rise above, I march smilingly on. I have a passion for order, automation and software which could aid in optimization, easing transitions and processes. I am resilient with great sense of humour, always welcoming a challenge. I have a firm belief that building and nurturing relationships are paramount to success. I love meeting people and building relationships come naturally to me. I believe it’s the level of connection that counts. I am passionate about my work, I love what I do, and I do it well. I believe that doing what you love is a privilege. Yet, I still long for something more philanthropic in life. To give back, be it ever so small. Being an eternal optimist and peppered with life’s-experiences, I have been shaped into the person I am today. Pragmatic, passionate, and humble. An enormous amount of grit coupled a with good dose of grace! I am not done growing yet, not by a long shot, there are too many interesting, inspiring people to meet along the way, and there is always something to learn and something to contribute in life. It’s the journey that counts and I enjoy every step.
Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio
The Cart Horse Protection Association is a non-profit Cape Town based animal welfare organisation. Our vision – to establish a centre of excellence for working equine welfare in the Western Cape. Our mission – promote the welfare of working horses and donkeys in the Western Cape through service provision, legislation, education and training. Our aims – to protect working cart horses and donkeys on the Cape Flats from abuse; initiate an outreach programme for working horses and donkeys in the Western Cape; establish a formal Youth Programme on the Cape Flats. The carting industry as we know it today has a proud heritage rooted in District Six where horses and carts were used to “smous” (hawk) fish, fruit, vegetables, bottles and bones. Horses were kept in community stables, traveled short distances with light loads and business was lucrative for the cart horse owner. With the forced removals to the Cape Flats, the lives of cart horse owners, their family and their horses took a turn for the worst. Far from their markets, hawking was no longer a viable option and communities began using horses and carts to collect scrap metal to generate an income. This new carting industry led to the renting out of horses and carts and an increase in cart horse operators who had limited knowledge on how to properly care for and maintain a working horse. Consequently, badly shod, thin, overloaded, overworked and abused working cart horses became a common site on Cape Town’s roads. Cart Horse Protection Association was established in 1995 to support owners and to address the welfare issues prevalent in the industry at this time. It is our belief that if owners and drivers have access to affordable services, are educated on proper horse care and have an understanding of animal welfare legislation, we can reduce the risk of horses’ welfare being compromised. Currently, we support cart horse owners, drivers and guards against 21 different areas on the Cape Flats, who use cart horses as a means of transport, collecting scrap metal and/or garden refuse and rubble to generate an income for themselves and their families.
