IHP is an independent association dedicated to the welfare of all equids. We combat abuse and ill-treatment and strive for a legislative and cultural change that can lead to the recognition of the rights of horses.
We do not receive any public funding, nor are we reimbursed by the Public Prosecution Offices for the custody of the horses handed over to us..
We can only count on donations and fundraising initiatives: what we do comes at a price, that’s why every single donation, even the most modest, is crucial to us, to allow us to follow our ambitious vision.
A free and easy way to help horses.
Donating the 5x1000 to IHP (only for Italian donors) is simple, it costs nothing and is a precious help for us.

"The recent Equine Herpes Virusepidemic has reminded all horse owners of the importance of vaccinations. Regular vaccination is a fundamental element of the horse’s care and wellbeing."
Petition – stop all imports of horsemeat, these horses are tortured! What’s happening in Canada
The emergency regulations issued for the pandemic by COVID-19, do not in any way prevent the care and assistance of horses and other equidae for normal physiological needs, as well as any veterinary care.
We are asking Health Minister Roberto Speranza not to authorise the sale in Italy of the drug Fixplan, produced by torturing pregnant mares. Help us to stop this abomination: sign and share the petition!
