14 October 2018: Let us disequestrianise

Join us for our last fall fundraiser before Vegan Days di Pontedera!

The event will be hosted by Egon Botteghi who will present “Let us disequestrianise”: an opportunity for reflections and testimonies of horse exploitation in the equestrian sport, a deep and personal journey through the history and experience of equitation. The sport is not a joy for the horses but a form of dominion to which they are subjected to day after day.

At 3.30pm, after the presentation, Egon will take us on a guided tour and together we will observe the Ippoasian herd of horses.

This event is important not only as an opportunity to get together but to raise funds that the volunteers need to keep the project moving forward.
As usual you will be able to binge on our tasty organic, local vegan buffet as well as the infamous Seitan roasters (Tofu roasters for those intolerant to gluten)!

Schedule of the event:

  • 10 am: guided tour of the sanctuary
  • 12.30 pm: vegan buffet
  • 14.30 pm: “Let us disequestrianise” by Egon Botteghi
  • 14.30 pm: Kids entertainment
