Keeping America's horses safe . . .

When EQUUS Foundation EQUUSTAR Georgina Bloomberg learned that hard-working, long time New York City carriage horses, Sophia and Sultan were ready to retire this past winter and needed a loving and appropriate home to begin their next chapter of life, she stepped up and adopted them both. She brought them to her Gotham North Farm to live out the rest of their lives together to frolic and offer inspiration to others.

"For many years these horses thrilled tourists and the people of New York City and even appeared with the Radio City Rockettes on TV specials. They are iconic, hard-working New Yorkers and I was excited to meet them and spend time with them each day. They are huge and powerful and yet so wise, gentle and affectionate. We just make each other happy," says Georgina. "I realize that not everyone can adopt a carriage horse or any horse -- but everyone can be a friend and a hero to horses that need help."

The EQUUS Foundation applauds and supports those who step up to help horses in transition and we believe all horses deserve great homes, love, and purpose -- and ultimately a humane end of life with dignity. Sophia, unfortunately, recently had a sudden, bad case of colic and had to be euthanized. She was in her 20's and passed with compassionate care the way all horses should. Sultan continues to inspire awe and joy at Gotham North and enjoy his bucolic retirement.

Over 130,000 American horses are shipped across the borders each year to be slaughtered. Most are healthy and have untapped potential as athletes, teachers, companions and therapy horses. Whether you are a competing equestrian, a pleasure rider, or someone who loves horses ---- everyone can do something to help horses live the lives they deserve. Take our challenge at #RideForHorses!
