...my treasures do not sparkle they clink,
they shine in the sun and neigh in the night...



JEANNE, France – August 2020

Italian Horse Protection, Tuscany, is a place full of life and love. My experience was extremely interesting. I have learned to really respect horses and understood the hard work behind keeping such a place alive.

The level of dedication I have witnessed in this place is unmatched, yet one look at the happiness and freedom of horses made me understand how much it’s really worth. Working at IHP is exhausting in a good way: a productive, intentional and useful way. The routine is designed on the horses’ needs, every step matters and filled me with satisfaction. The effects of our efforts as volunteers are very visible. I would strongly recommend to anyone interested in helping both the fauna and flora to come and offer their time to this wonderful association.

I will most definitely be back, and will do my best to continue spread the word that horses deserve freedom from human exploitation. Thank you IHP!
