Best Website in the Horse Industry? It’s MyRightHorse.org!

by | Jun 2019 | News

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA  –  MyRightHorse.org, an innovative web app that connects potential adopters with available horses, was recognized as the best website at the 2019 American Horse Publications Equine Media Awards. My Right Horse won top honors in the Business Equine-Related Website Category on June 1 at the High Desert Round Up in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

My Right Horse was designed to make it easier for the millions of families interested in adopting to find their right horse. It stands apart from other horse search platforms by prioritizing user experience and both for horse seekers and busy adoption agency operators. Launched in August 2018, the site currently has over 76 active users listing 531 horses.  Over 100,000 weekly visitors come to the site looking for adoptable horses.

“This is a very user-friendly site. It’s as simple to search for a horse as it is to list one, and the site looks really wonderful on mobile. Very clean design. It also provides a great service to the equine industry, making it easy for horse adopters to find rescue animals,” commented the judges.

The Right Horse Initiative also took home second-place in the Business Equine-related Print Ad Campaign category for the “Changing the Adoption Conversation” advertising campaign. The ad campaign worked seamlessly alongside My Right Horse to inspire the horse community to see horses in transition in a new light and consider adoption when acquiring their next horse.

Five Right Horse partners also received recognition for their excellence in equine media and publishing.

“We are thrilled that equine adoption was represented and recognized during the American Horse Publications Equine Media Awards. There was an outstanding pool of entries and we are thrilled for the fellow award recipients and our partners that received recognition,” said Christy Counts, President of the Right Horse Initiative.

We couldn’t have asked for a better pony. Kentucky Humane Society Equine Cares had a great process. They made sure it was a safe match and shared all the background information on her.

I just knew this was my girl. With the support of my family, who knew I wouldn’t make this decision lightly, we decided to adopt her. I cannot tell you how much joy she brings to my life, I love her to pieces!

She has picked my husband as “her person” and he loves her. We love our horses and cannot imagine life without them. We hope that we have changed their lives in the way they’ve changed ours!
