“The EQUUS Foundation is honored and thrilled to have been chosen as a beneficiary of the inaugural Chesapeake International Draft Horse Show by renowned equine advocate, Victoria McCullough. Victoria is not only a lifelong, expert horsewoman, and now owner of world champion competition Clydesdales, but there is no one more committed to the welfare and rescue of America’s horses” says EQUUS Foundation VP of Engagement, Valerie Angeli.

“It is our hope that this show will inspire and amaze those who are unfamiliar with these giant and powerful, yet gentle and versatile draft horses. As Victoria says, they are not only beautiful, they are surprisingly quiet, grateful, stoic, and easy to sustain. Often overlooked for adoption because of their massive size, they give their might and their heart in sport and also as pleasure, trail and driving horses, companions, and therapy horses. As the only charity in the US focused 100 percent on protecting America’s horses and fostering the horse-human bond, we are excited to have the opportunity to raise awareness of these very special animals through the Chesapeake International Draft Horse Show.”
