Equestrian Aid Foundation's Mission is to build a membership based organization to assist anyone in the equestrian world suffering from life threatening illness, catastrophic accidents or injuries by providing direct financial support for their medical or other basic needs.
$2 Million in Aid to Equestrians in Need
The EAF has now distributed more than $2 million dollars to assist its recipients with expenses relating to severe illnesses, major injuries and critical medical emergencies. Currently, the EAF assists 25 recipients totaling nearly $15,000 per month. The EAF reached its $2 million mark in grant funding in September 2012 and received its 100th application for assistance at the beginning of this year.
Thanks to everyone who made Who Reins Supreme? a huge success!
Congrats to the hunter team of Peter Pletcher and Louise Serio, co-sponsored by Missy Luczak Smith and Stephanie Riggio-Bulger!
