Equine International is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit research institute dedicated to studies in equine behavior, wellbeing and welfare, and equine-human interactions in all areas of domestic and free-living equids. We collaborate with a number of different institutions, universities, and organizations to observe and learn how horses choose to live their lives, how we fit into their world, and how we can use this information to improve the wellbeing of horses in our care. We do research all over the world with feral, free-living, and domestic horses and often invite others to join us on amazing adventures to collect data and learn about wild equids. We also work with equine practitioners and trainers in a wide range of settings to create educational courses for anyone involved with horses for accessible online courses as well as in-person workshops.
The goal, however, is to improve the lives of horses and humans so we’re always collaborating with individuals and organizations to help them build and improve their work in the field.
Please consider making a donation. Proceeds go towards funding research in all fields of equine wellbeing, equine-human interactions, and equine-assisted activities and therapies. With your help we can continue to do the research that can help improve the lives of horses, humans, and other equids all over the world.

Our team consists of highly trained professionals from a variety of backgrounds, all of them with decades of experience in animal behavior, welfare, human-animal interactions, and animal-assisted interventions.
We wanted to create a single organization dedicated to equines, one that focused almost exclusively on the equine perspective, how they choose to live their lives, and how we fit into their world.
Equine International is focused on research, education, and application of principles in the fields of equine behavior, welfare, and equine-human interactions.
