Robb Report Horsepower Gala

Benefiting The EQUUS Foundation

An exciting ending to the evening was the live auction and live performance artist, Michael Israel, who created a stunning horse-themed work of art, to music, on blank canvas.

When the work emerged, there was an audible gasp in the room when three mustang horses were revealed – a tribute to the artwork associated with Steven Latham’s film, “The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses”, to promote wild horse protection.

Esteemed Equestrians and Horse Lovers Celebrated Under the Stars at the Robb Report’s Horsepower Gala

The EQUUS Foundation was once again thrilled to be part of a magical evening with high-powered horse lovers and equestrians in Wellington, Florida on March 31st at the Robb Report’s Third Annual Horsepower Gala. Attended by a who’s who of the equestrian world and renown advocates who love and protect horses, the evening honored five outstanding individuals who elevate equestrian sport and equine welfare in their own unique way. Cristina Cheever, Senior Vice President, RR1 & Live Media, Robb Report, welcomed the guests. The EQUUS Foundation was the beneficiary of the Live Auction and received over $110,000.

The venue for the event was the breathtaking Wellington headquarters and stables of Helgstrand Dressage, with its covered, open-air riding arena transformed into a grand, and elegant party room to accommodate special cocktails, dinner, the awards ceremony, and a live auction.

“The EQUUS Foundation has been incredibly touched and inspired by our growing, collaborative partnership with the Robb Report, and their commitment to equine welfare – especially Sophie Stenbeck who first introduced us to the Robb Report. We also want to thank Gerry Byrne, Vice Chairman, Board Member, Penske Media.

Both Sophie and Gerry were responsible for our joining together to ensure that horses have the ability to thrive throughout all stages of their lives and live with purpose, comfort and dignity,” said Valerie Angeli, EQUUS Foundation VP of Engagement.

“We are thrilled to celebrate this partnership tonight – with all of you – who care deeply about the welfare of horses and all they mean to us, and with the five esteemed recipients of tonight’s Horsepower awards,” continued Angeli.
