A Home for Every Horse to Help Homeless Horses

This is a great human interest story that WDAA thought you might like to read about.

carole&horse2Cavallo Horse & Rider Inc. has joined with the Equine Network, the nation’s leading publisher of horse-related content, as a partner in A Home to Every Horse, a national effort to help equines across the country in need of care and shelter.

A Home for Every Horse is a joint effort with The American Horse Council’s Unwanted Horse Coalition, which seeks to place, foster and sponsor America’s homeless horses. Partners of A Home for Every Horse include Tractor Supply Company, Purina Animal Nutrition, WeatherBeeta, the Bureau of Land Management and W.F. Young, Inc. Nonprofit equine rescue organizations can post free listings on Equine.com, the industry’s largest website for buying and selling horses, trailers and farms. The Equine Network is using its connection with more than 1.5 million horse owners each month to promote the program.

“We at Cavallo are very pleased to sponsor and contribute to A Home For Every Horse,” said Cavallo President Carole Herder. “This further fulfills my personal mission to improve the life of horses by providing increased comfort and care. Together with the other great companies involved, we take a significant step forward in the industry we are all grateful to be a part of.”

Herder founded Cavallo in 1993 on the belief that caring for horses naturally and keeping them barefoot is essential to long term health and well-being. The company developed Cavallo hoof boots, which are now distributed in 28 countries. The Cavallo team is dedicated to developing and distributing innovative products that provide comfort, protection, safety, security and support for both horse and rider.

“We’re so glad to have Cavallo join the group of companies that support the efforts of horse rescues through A Home for Every Horse,” said Dave Andrick, Equine Network Group Publisher. “The unwanted horse problem requires help from concerned equestrians across all disciplines, and assistance from forward-thinking companies is a huge step in the right direction. It is truly heartening to see Cavallo offering aid to the rescues that work tirelessly to find homes for our nation’s unwanted horses.”

  • First, Let me say this is the most difficult thing in the world for me at this time. I thought having to put down a cat or dog was bad, but, now the idea of “disposing” of my giant friends is killing me!! But I am breaking forever promises & I have no clue where to begin!!
    I had started making inquiries starting a year ago maybe less, when the possablility was arising. You see I have Three horses-2 Sr (30+ & 24) And one not too far behind at 18. The 30 + was an abandoned over 10 yrs ago himself, and my mare’s first owners had apparently been abusive. The 3rd is her colt. (So, so smart, but a bit spoiled)
    Anyway, I am a Veteran suffering from non-combat PTSD, but military related none the less. But also had to quit working due to medical reasons 8 yrs ago. My husband, retired military, was laid off and never able to return due to the economy plus his helath has been failing.
    We have held on to them as long as we can-perhaps too long, my mare I bought 22 years ago to help me thru the tough times when the system wouldn’t & she was marvelous!! So you see I cannot just dump her off to anyone!! And the 3 of them have been together since before my colt was born
