Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Help a Horse Day

In 1866, ASPCA founder Henry Bergh stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the first successful arrest for horse mistreatment on April 26th of that year.

In advance of national Help a Horse Day, Emily Weiss, Ph.D., CAAB, vice president of ASPCA Equine Welfare, is excited to share three ways to #helpahorse:

1. Foster a horse: By fostering a horse, you are helping multiple at-risk horses by opening a stall for the next horse in need. To help individuals more easily connect with horses in need of temporary foster homes, the ASPCA has updated its online adoption platform, MyRightHorse.org, to spotlight horses available for fostering. The site, previously focused solely on encouraging adoption, now includes a re-branded homepage, opportunities to inquire about specific horses and resources about fostering. Check out MyRightHorse.org to find your #righthorse to foster.

2. Adopt your #righthorse: If you’ve been considering bringing a new horse, mule or donkey into your life, the time has never been better. There are equines of all breeds and ages and many different disciplines available on MyRightHorse.org looking for a loving home to call their own.

3. Spread the word: Do you love horses but don’t have the space or resources? Find your ideal equine at an adoption agency near you or anywhere across the country on MyRightHorse.org. Share him or her on your social media accounts and with friends using the hashtag #righthorse to help them find a loving home during these difficult times.
