Equiculture is a woman-owned santuary/farm that puts Earth first and thrives with a mission to restore the ancient connection between horses, humans and Mother Earth.
They ensure sanctuary for retired, disabled and homeless work horses and in the process teach driving skills and sell soil restoration products.
It is important to note that draft horses worldwide are in dangerous decline. First bred for heavier hauling, they were the power behind our daily lives and even the power behind the very first farming machinery and equipment as we started to mechanize our lives. Not until steam discoveries did machinery start to wean off the need for horses in power production. We still measure in horse power to this day and the importance of their stake in human development deserves preservation and reverence.
At Four Horses the source of the horse hair in the adornments must be traceable, it must be ethical and also sustainable. With all hair on the open market coming directly from slaughter houses outside the country I needed to work hard to find alternative sourcing or the line would not move forward. The partnership with Equiculture creates the opportunity to make sure 100% of the materials are sourced from rescued and loved living horses and grants me the added pleasure of knowing these beautiful souls and the people that care for them.
