You were the machine…
Powerful and strong,
Moving in a storm
Of order and chaos, bravery and fear…
Fueled by honor,
Saluted as the brave ones.
Courage looks different now…
And strength must be borrowed
Where it cannot be found.
Amid all the things
That were taken with rough hands,
Here find peace spoken to all your broken pieces...
The warm breath of hope
Telling you it is safe to feel again,
That yours is a soul worth fighting for.
Here find light that pushes back the looming darkness…
Reminding you beauty still exists,
Calling you to live again.
Here find quiet strength that humbly shares your burden…
Graciously bowing its head
To salute the courage it takes to heal.
More About Arabian Horses For Humanity
HORSES WITH A PURPOSE
The project was created to bring a life size artistic rendition of the world’s oldest breed of horse to communities around the world. Arabian Horses for Humanity aims to bring together members of the Arabian horse industry with local businesses, charities, and artists through a shared appreciation of the living art the Arabian horse represents.
Meet the Artists
Each of the Arabian Horses for Humanity is a unique work of art representing the artists vision as it relates to the cause the horse represents. Visit the Artists page to see each horse and discover the many ways in which each artist has fulfilled the vision of the project!
If you are a fundraiser looking for a unique way to raise money for your charity Arabian Horses for Humanity is the perfect opportunity for you. There will be Corporate & Naming Rights Sponsors for each Arabian Horse statue who has already purchased the statue and the materials needed to decorate it for the artist. If they haven’t selected the artist you can participate in that selection process.
