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.
