Mission Statement

Our foundation is dedicated to the preservation of the at risk Clydesdale Horse.


USACPF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that is dedicated to the preservation of the Clydesdale Horse. through education, rescue, and public riding demonstrations. The Clydesdale Breed is classified as "at risk" by the Equus Trust Foundation and as "vulnerable" by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. Our mission is to educate the public about their "at risk" classification, history, abilities and difficulties affecting the Clydesdale Horse.

Helping educate our society about the versatility of the Clydesdale Horse will contribute to the Clydesdale's survival. These beautiful, majestic horses not only make wonderful hitch teams, but also can become very dependable riding mounts.

Our goals are to support an increase in the Clydesdale population through the promotion of the Clydesdale as a desirable riding horse. USACPF also provides educational resources for high schools and colleges that offer equestrian studies, FFA and 4-H programs. Additionally, we exhibit the versatile Clydesdale Breed through media and show presentations in a multitude of public settings. Through our foundation's efforts we expect to contribute to the preservation and promotion of the Clydesdale Horse, thus providing a place in today's society for them and for future generations to enjoy.

USA Clydesdale Preservation Foundation is great for high school students.

Volunteering here as taught me such things as how to feed, horse handling skills and I had no idea there is a Clydesdale population decline which could result in extinction – very scary thought for these gentle giants. There are many volunteer opportunities no matter your skill set; outdoor maintenance/repair, horse care, office help, etc. If you have time they’d appreciate your help, even if you can only commit to once or twice per month, every volunteer hour helps. Everyone I’ve met here is helpful and friendly which makes it an enjoyable place to come.

I've really enjoyed volunteering with this organization. Everyone here is so friendly and welcoming. I've enjoyed it so much I've recommended my friends and family to volunteer as well!

I have volunteered for this wonderful organization for over a year and a half. Even though I moved out of state, I volunteer here whenever I'm in town for a visit. The Director and volunteers are dedicated to the 6 Clydesdales living on site and to the mission of the Foundation - to educate the public about the at risk nature of this breed and to promote their worth in preservation. I have loved being with these gentle horses - the feeding, grooming, cleaning stalls(!) and education events this Foundation holds. It is evident these horses are loved and well cared for and the organization's mission is strong and true.
