The Foundation would like to thank all of those who have made it possible for us to give aid in excess of $20,000.00 this year to Professional Horsemen/women in need. Itís been a tough year for our sport in regards to accidents and we hope all a speedy recovery.
Thank you to Equine Insurance, Jet Pets and Rebecca Bruce with their sponsorship of our latest fundraiser at Flintridge Riding Club. With their support we held a wine and cheese tasting party and hosted a dinner during the Grand Prix for 200 people. It was a great evening of competition, food and friendships! Thank you to all that came and joined in the fun!!
