On Our Shoulders

Outside of non-industrialized societies, horses are still an integral part of the economic and cultural fabric. These equines are essential to transportation and tourism, critical to the welfare and well-being of their communities. Many of these communities are remote and almost entirely self-reliant; they have limited access to the resources that much of the Western world takes for granted, including access to medical care—particularly veterinary care. Unfortunately, in these places, the ruin of a horse can mean the ruin of a family.

Equitarian Initiative is an organization of volunteer veterinarians dedicated to improving the lives of working equines around the world and empowering those who rely on them.
