Wellington, Fla. ­– Jan. 7, 2019 – Equestrian Aid Foundation and Shapley’s Superior Equine Grooming Products will join forces for a second winter season to support the nonprofit’s mission of helping critically ill and injured horsemen. Shapley’s will donate 10 percent of product sales made on the HITS Coachella Desert Circuit, HITS Ocala Winter Circuit and at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) in Wellington, Florida.
