The Hoofin’ It for Horse and Human Healing Adventure is officially underway. On April 6, 2014, Lauren Davis and Nate Kramer set out on their 5+month journey to hike the Appalachian Trail to make the world a better place for horses.

Lauren and Nathan are using their own funds and resources to support themselves along the trail. 100% of the donations raised in connection with this adventure will be used for horse welfare. But, they certainly appreciated the support of EQUUS Foundation Corporate Partner Ariat International. Ariat decked the hikers out with needed attire.

$5,000 Already Raised!  Lauren and Nate’s goal is to raise $25,000 to essential funding to reduce the unwanted horse population, retrain horses for multiple careers, and make equine therapy available to more people.

The donor levels match important landmarks on the Appalachian Trail. When a landmark is reached, the donor will receive:

*  Harpers Ferry, WV: a photo of gratitude in front of Appalachian Trail Conservancy, the “psychological” half-way point
*  Gardners, PA: a photo of gratitude at Pine Grove Furnace State Park in Gardners, PA engaging in the 1/2 gallon ice cream challenge
*  Mount Washington, NH: a photo of gratitude at the peak of Mount Washington, NH, a location labeled as having the “worst weather in the world”
*  Mount Katahdin, ME: a photo of gratitude at the peak of Mount Katahdin, ME, the original through-hike finish line (should you choose, photo can also include your name, logo, or message)
*  IAT Cap-des-Rosiers, QC, Canada: a photo of gratitude in front of the Imperial Lighthouse (Cap-des-Rosiers) in Gaspe, Canada, a very rare through-hike finish line (should you choose, photo can also include your name, logo, or message)
