The diverse and giving nature of the Arabian horse community it evident from a sample of the various charities which have benefited from being a part of the Arabian Horses For Humanity project!
Babies Heart Fund
By all accounts the thirty-fourth annual Babies Heart Fund Gala was a huge success! The BHF Gala, held at The Pierre hotel, is an amazing event by any standard, and the Arabian Horses for Humanity was proud to debut Braveheart at this year’s celebration, where he was unveiled to over five hundred guests, all there to support a cause they are very passionate about—supporting pediatric cardiology research and transitional care programs for young adults. Braveheart, a gift to the Babies Heart Fund, will reside at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center where he will continue to raise awareness of not only pediatric cardiology research, but Arabian Horses as well.

Saber champions two causes; 1) The Wounded Warrior Project and 2) the Arabian Horseman’s Distress Fund (AHDF) — two important and worthy causes that both strike a very personal chord with sponsor, Grace Rushing.
The Wounded Warrior Program (WWP) is a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following September 11, 2001. Grace and her husband, Mack, are Army veterans with 44 years of combined service, so finding a way to support soldiers in need was an instinctive response honed through a lifetime of service to our country.
The AHDF provides assistance in a variety of ways—from helping out an individual, to providing funds to help out horses and horseman facing disasters of epic proportions.
