On May 13, 2019, The Paulick Report reported on the operations of American Horse Council, a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Former American Horse Council Staffer Sentenced To 27 Months In Prison For Embezzlement." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Paulick Report article.

  • On September 26, 2018, The Canon City Daily Record published an article titled, "Colorado woman accused of embezzling nearly $600,000 from nonprofit horse advocacy group, lawsuit says." For more information, please see The Canon City Daily Record article.


The concerns raised about illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through such external sources and websites.
