October is for horses, and this fall, the Equine Network LLC is happy to announce that Horse Week, brought to you by Boehringer Ingelheim, is back for its second year. 

An equine-centric digital festival unlike any other, last year, Horse Week brought together more than 30 equine associations and companies for one singular cause: the celebration of the horse.  

  • "On Their Shoulders," brought to you by Equitarian Initiative, and "The Making of a Champion," brought to you by Boehringer Ingelheim, took home Gold Awards for the Website Consumer Video category at the 2021 VETTY Awards. 

  •  “The Drive to Brotherhood: Semper Fi & America's Fund Jinx McCain Horsemanship Program,” presented by Sentinel Horse Feeds, took first place in the American Horse Publications-Business Equine-related Long Video category 

  • “M.L. Leddy's Legacy of Quality” received an honorable mention in the AHP-Business Equine-related Short Video category 

  • AHP-Business Equine-related Long Video 

"The entire staff and combat wounded veterans from the Semper Fi & America's Fund's Jinx McCain Horsemanship Program give our heartiest 'thank you' for the incredible Equine Network film of our annual Double Rafter Cattle Drive," said John Mayer, senior director, SFFAP & Foreman, JMHP Semper Fi & America's Fund. "Your production and camera team were simply amazing, producing a film that captured the challenges of our veterans and the restorative power a good horse, dedicated teammates and a rigorous mission has on their wellness." 

Horse Week 2022 promises to be equally as exciting for viewers. During the week-long viewing experience, riders and horse lovers of every level and discipline will enjoy high-quality educational and inspiring content that includes profiles of incredible equine athletes, equine storytelling that celebrates the horse-human bond and heartwarming tales of horse heroics.
