“Horses of Hope” calendar to benefit equine charity


Photographer Sarah K. Andrew and designer Gina Kessling of Hoofprints.com have collaborated for a second year to produce the “Horses and Hope: Faces of Rescue” calendar, sales of which will benefit the equine advocacy group One Horse At A Time. One Horse At A Time awards grants to horse rescues and needy individuals in the horse business. Last year’s calendar raised more than $40,000 for the Nicholasville, Ky.-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

This year’s “Horses and Hope” calendar features more than 100 photographs of horses at at the Camelot horse auction in New Jersey, and in their adoptive homes or horse rescue facilities in Connecticut, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The calendars cost $19.95 each and are available at http://www.hoofprints.com/ska.html. All proceeds benefit One Horse At A Time.

Thank you for highlighting this work from the heart that our dear friends, Sarah Andrew and Gina Keesling, have put together. This calendar, in addition to providing funds for horses in need, is also an outstanding testament to the fact that there are no unwanted horses. Penny Austin One Horse at a Time, Inc.

This is more important than ever, with horses being abandoned or sent off to slaughter at an alarming rate. The racing industry in Canada is collapsing due to government funding cutbacks, and irresponsible race horse breeders are dumping horses in feed lots, in record numbers. Horse rescues are struggling to keep up with the demand on their hearts, their stables, and most importantly, their bank accounts. Truly heartbreaking. The calendar is beautifully put together, on framing quality paper, and makes a meaningful Christmas gift!

I love my 2012 calendar, (and my "Camelot alumni" who appears in it.) Sarah captures the soul of her subjects and this little calendar was such a success greatly because of Sarah's gorgeous photos.- I cannot wait to get my 2013 calendar! Kristin
