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.

Horse Whisperer Annual Award

EQUUS Foundation Horse Whisperers are a select group of individuals and organizations committed to ensuring that America's horses are safe and live with dignity throughout their lives and are recognized by the EQUUS Foundation for their extraordinary kinship with horses by the establishment of an award in their names to honor deserving equine charities. The EQUUS Foundation Board of Directors honors those charities from among the grant recipients that best align with the interests of the Horse Whisperers with a Horse Whisperer Award.

We have been the recipient of the Whisper Award for two years now.
