Join Amanda Hearst & Breanna Schultz for the Full Circle Benefit. This year we will be raising money for our 2019 campaign, the Human-Animal Bond, and our four charity partners who work in animal therapies and interventions. Look forward to cocktails, canapés, rescue animals and a big announcement from Amanda & Breanna about finn2finn!
In 2015, Mary Lou Kaler of Stable Environment Equine Rehabilitation (S.E.E.R.) rescued four White Shire horses after they were found severely malnourished and abused by their former owner. Pictured above, Gunner, Patsy, Isabelle and Tess were moved to local farm land in East Hampton generously donated by Dune Alpin, where they could recover from their desperate situation and be given a new lease on life. Over time, the four beauties established a strong presence in the area with locals calling them a “blessing for the whole town” and “magical, noble beings.” However, the care and keeping of these horses is no small task with shelter, food and medical needs adding up to thousands a month and no consistent winter housing available.
This event focuses on the issues surrounding American horses and the transitioning from their careers to their next home.
Amanda and Breanna met photographer Lincoln Pilcher last year, whose incredible photo series of the White Shire rescue horses brought to attention the larger issue through their background and story. After learning that nearly 130,000 U.S. horses are transported to slaughter houses each year, finn2finn Alliance (f2f) has decided to take action on this issue. The hope is to create awareness while raising funds to help this important cause. Lincoln will also be displaying his photography from the White Shire series, along with the debut of more of his work with other rescue horses and their stories.
