The Chronicle of the Horse—Apr. 17, 2020—The Equestrian Aid Foundation has distributed 160 relief checks to equestrians in financial crisis as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic as of April 16. The initiative to support equestrian professionals and industry service providers has been funded through EAF’s Disaster Relief Fund.
“The essential shutdown of our industry has really thrown the community into crisis,” said EAF board member Scot Evans. “Many of the people we work among week in and week out have been left with no means of financial security and no way forward. It’s been devastating.”
