Equilink is a brand new search engine dedicated to all things equine. From their press release:

  • New horse enthusiasts can make far more informed selections, while established horse lovers will be thrilled by the depth and breadth of its superbly organized search results.
  • Users can drill down by state and city, so finding geographically accurate results is a cinch!
  • Equilink’s dedication to preventing click fraud is unparalleled in the search engine universe.
  • Equilink’s mission is to give back to the equine community. As such, 10% of all Equilink’s net proceeds will be used to support equine retirement & rescue sanctuaries and medical research, unlike any other search engine.

I like this, and I think you will too. Check it out!
