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 also run the first rescue centre in Italy for equines seized for mistreatment. 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. You too can participate in our activities or support us with a donation of any amount.
