Horses For Humanity

about the project ...

The Mission...

The Arabian Horses for Humanity project was created in the fall of 2016 to bring a life size artistic rendition of the world’s oldest breed of horse to communities around the world, in order to highlight the beauty and human/horse bond that is intrinsic to the breed. For thousands of years the Arabian horse has united people of all cultures and nationalities through its innate ability to interact with humans and help them move forward in life.

Today the life size renderings of the statue, created by renowned equine artist Karen Kasper, are being sponsored by various businesses and individuals, painted in a myriad of ways, then donated to various pediatric hospitals and charities around the country to raise money for children’s health issues.

The Arabian Horses for Humanity project aims to enable the Arabian horse to continue to assist mankind in their needs to move forward in life, as it has since the beginning of time, and to bring people from all walks of life together in a shared goal and appreciation of these unparalleled horses, the horses that have the ability to change lives.
