Equitarian Initiative’s mission is to educate owners, community animal health workers, veterinary students, and local veterinarians for improved working equid health care.


To create long-term changes and have successful impacts on the health of the working equids, EI develops partnerships in each region we work. These partnerships include collaboration and training for both domestic and international veterinarians, technicians, farriers, equine scientists, and students. 

To enhance sustainability and local problem-solving, we prioritize the participation of individuals local to the countries and communities in which we work, but we do offer limited volunteer spaces on our annual programs.


EI programs vary in size and in the number of available volunteer positions. Each team is comprised of trained program leaders, EI instructors, and new volunteers. We prioritize volunteers who seek long-term engagement and are invested in EI’s leadership development.
