Chagrin Falls, Ohio, January 9, 2018.  Horses and Humans Research Foundation (HHRF) welcomes Sally Lehnhardt to their board of directors.  Lehnhardt, from Cockeysville, MD, is a VP at McCormick & Co., Inc. and a lifelong horse enthusiast.  She is a firm believer in the benefits from interaction between horses and humans on multiple levels and has commented that “I do not believe I would be an executive today if I had not been a horse person. The interaction gave me confidence I would not have had otherwise. “


Lehnhardt is VP of IT Delivery - responsible for IT investment governance processes and driving technological thought leadership capabilities. She also is accountable for global business partnership, solution development, application project delivery and operations in support of business strategies and an ambitious growth agenda.


Her skills in business and strategy development will be a great asset to HHRF as they refine plans for growth of their research investment to support the future of equine assisted activities and therapies.  The board has set a priority to increase its research grants while honing the research focus to best advance the field and centers.


Mission: Through sustained investment in rigorous research, HHRF serves as a catalyst to advance global knowledge of horse-human interactions and their impact on health and wellness.


Horses and Humans Research Foundation (HHRF) is dedicated to funding research to investigate the equine-assisted activities and therapies field. Since its founding, HHRF has awarded over $460,000 in professional research efforts led by twelve research teams in the United States, Canada and Germany. HHRF is a non-endowed foundation dependent solely on donations. To make a donation and/or learn more about this and other Horses and Humans Research Foundation projects visit
