Horses are inspirational! That is the message of the Horse Stars Hall of Fame established by the EQUUS Foundation and the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) in 2013 to celebrate the extraordinary talent of horses and the magical bond between horses and people.

The EQUUS Foundation inducts horses that have had a life-changing impact in public service or on the public's perception of horses; have excelled or are excelling in the area of equine assisted activities and therapies, or have excelled or are excelling in their competitive or public service career after overcoming significant hardship. The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) inducts the six "Horses of Honor" selected by USEF annually.

Nominations close on December 15th at To submit a nomination, the competition requires nominators to join the Equine Welfare Network.
