Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall serves as organization’s president

The Brooke, an international equine charity that also helps people, has selected Lexington as the location for its base in the United States.

“We considered a number of cities for our U.S. office: Washington, D.C., Palm Beach, New York, Los Angeles, and others, but in the end, it was the Horse Capital of the World, Lexington, Kentucky, that we chose,” said Petra Ingram, CEO of the Brooke.

The organization has been assisting working animals (horses, donkeys and mules) and their owners in developing countries for nearly 80 years. Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cornwall, wife of Britain’s heir to the throne, Prince Charles, is the organization’s president.

“Having seen for myself the wonderful work the Brooke does in their clinic in Cairo and Pakistan to help the suffering of working animals, it makes me incredibly proud to be the President of this unique charity and to follow its course with enormous interest,” said Her Royal Highness, who is currently serving her second term as president.
