2017 Wellington Equine Protection Benefit

Please join us for an evening to celebrate horses and The Humane Society of the United States’ Equine Protection Program. The HSUS’ Equine Protection program works tirelessly to end cruelty to America’s horses, promote humane horsemanship, find sanctuary for rescued horses and stop abusive practices like horse slaughter and the soring of show horses. Enjoy a cocktail reception, buffet dinner, presentation by a member of the Equine Protection staff at The HSUS and a special appearance by actress Wendie Malick, all while you enjoy special seating to view the $380,000 Fidelity Investments® Grand Prix CSI 5. Immediately following the conclusion of the Grand Prix, The Gallery opens to a public after-party with a cash bar. VIP wristbands are available if you’d like to stay and attend.
