Collaborations, Awards and Achievements
F.R.I.E.N.D.S. has won many awards through the years. We are so appreciative of the recognition for our hard work and also for the exposure the awards and collaborations provide to those who do not know what it is we do for the horses in our care. The awards we have garnered through the years serve to educate the public to the importance of what FRIENDS does as we continue to search for a cure for EIA and to provide sanctuary and care for our herd.
