The horses of Vieques are the Island’s treasure, creating a uniqueness not commonly found elsewhere. 

Caballos de Vieques Inc. (CDV) Facebook Page, with thousands of members of the Viequense and Puerto Rican horse communities, offers a line of communication and a place to come together. The Page also documents the horse population and culture through photographs of horses and herds in all barrios while sharing the unique beauty of Vieques.

Caballos de Vieques is now in the process of achieving federal non-profit status with the IRS and has formally registered as a domestic non-profit in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico as a charitable organization devoted to horse care and education.

The goal of the group is to provide preventative health care, education, and the tools needed for responsible horse ownership to the citizens of Vieques.

As such, we are now accepting donations. Any help you can provide in the form of cash or in kind donations will help us reach our goal of a healthy, well cared for horse population which is such a vital part of the cultural heritage of our island.
