Equine Research

Help the Foundation support equine research.

Since 1960, the American Quarter Horse Association and American Quarter Horse Foundation have been dedicated to help our horses overcome the problems and limitations that defy current scientific understanding. Since that time, the Foundation, thanks in large part to our generous members, has awarded more than $9.5 million in research grants to colleges and universities across the country.

With the complexity and rising cost of research, additional financial support is needed for the healing, curing and well-being of the American Quarter Horse.

Donate today and help support a healthy future for our horses.
