Jill Cantor Lee has used her love of horses to inspire her community to empower women in need. Cantor-Lee, a former Aid worker in Africa, started Horses for Humanity after watching an episode of Oprah featuring Women for Women International. Her mission is to share the privilege and beauty of horse dressage (a training technique which accentuates a horse’s natural athletic ability and willingness to perform) with those who have been affected by atrocities of war and violence.
Horses for Humanity’s first program entails the contribution, training, and selling of a dressage horse. Logan, Horse for Humanity’s first horse for sale, is an 11- year-old Danish gelding currently being trained by Jill. All proceeds from Logan’s sale will be contributed to Women for Women International. For more information, please visit the website. Jill, along with her great team (including a saddle maker, vet, vet acupuncturist and chiropractor, horse transporter, and masseurs), are all contributing their extraordinary efforts and talents to this wonderful program to benefit women survivors of war. This year alone Jill and her friends have raised close to $6,000 in donations. Thank you Jill for all the work you do to empower women worldwide!
