Change Begins With Us
Green Is the New Blue is an environmental non-profit that strives to reduce the environmental impacts of equine-related events and activities. We encourage others to incorporate green practices into daily operations.
Green Is The New Blue Has Two Goals:
To empower and inspire equestrians to join us in our mission of reducing the environmental impact of horse sports
To provide the tools to make these changes easy and straightforward to implement
Small Changes Have Huge Impacts
Founded by Stephanie Bulger, an amateur rider and mother with a passion for sustainability, GNB is dedicated to preserving the planet for the animals we love and their future riders.
Green Is the New Blue has developed a team with vast experience within the equestrian industry, as well as knowledge on developing a sustainable non-profit. Each member of our team is devoted to creating a better tomorrow for our children.
Stephanie Riggio Bulger
Green Is the New Blue was founded by Stephanie Riggio Bulger. A lifelong New Yorker, Stephanie's passion for horses began as a kid in Central Park, and has taken her to the top echelon of the hunter world. She has owned and competed on such notable horses as Indian Summer, Fiddler's Bridge and many more. Stephanie is also a proud mom of her son Leo who is the inspiration behind Green Is the New Blue. Stephanie has seen the impact we have on our planet and wants to leave it in a better place for her son.
Combining Stephanie's love of horses with her passion to make the world a better place has created a movement within the equine industry to do our part and save the planet for our children.
