The Crusade Against Equine Colic is all about community and education. We want people to receive the information they need to educate themselves and others on equine colic so that it may be prevented in their barns.  Through creating conversation among horse lovers regarding research, prevention, and shared experiences, we can spread a wide-reaching message that saves equine lives, and helps you and other horse lovers to avoid the heartache, expense and challenges that colic represents.

We do this in three ways: providing educational content on our website, allowing people to share their own personal colic stories with each other, and through word of mouth. 

Equine Colic Awareness Month kicks off in June and we want as many equestrians as possible to be ready for it. That’s where you come in.

Why Partner?

Colic is the #1 killer of horses, but what most people don’t know is that the majority of colic cases may be preventable.

That message alone needs to be spread loud and clear all around the country, in every horse barn, in every show ring, track or course. We as equestrians all have the same goal: To keep our horses happy and healthy. Let’s talk about how we can achieve that!

By partnering with the Crusade Against Equine Colic, you are helping equestrians save horses from having to go through deadly colic episodes. You are directing them to the information they need that could save their horse’s life. You are equipping them with ways to talk to their owners, trainers, friends and family about ways they could give a horse a better life. You are sharing your own stories, lessons, and tips for avoiding colic.
