The Arabian Horse Foundation has announced a $50,000 gift from the Barbara Wright Hutton Trust, the largest gift the non-profit entity has received since re-launching in 2007. The donation will be devoted to equine research and horse rescue and placement.
"I know my aunt would be pleased to know that her gift will be used for something that meant a lot to her and will make a difference in impacting the welfare of horses," stated Wright Hutton's niece, Jackie Johnston, an Arabian horse owner and Arabian Horse Association judge.
Wright Hutton lived in St. Louis, Mo., and was an Arabian owner and lifetime horseperson. Prior to her passing in 2008, she urged Johnston, the executor of her trust, to contribute to worthy animal charities.
Since it was re-launched four years ago, the AHF has donated over $75,000 in youth scholarships and equine rescue and equine research. For more information, click here
