Who We Help
The Equestrian Aid Foundation provides needs-based financial support to horse people who have experienced life-changing or life-threatening health crises and need assistance with paying for basic living and rehabilitative expenses.
Our mission is to help horse people throughout the United States in their time of need. We have provided grant support to riders, grooms, braiders, trainers, barn managers, judges, show officials, farriers, veterinarians, veterinary techs, equine chiropractors, breeders and people with many other equestrian vocations and avocations.
Equestrian Aid grant applicants can be of any age and Involved in the equestrian community as a professional or amateur in any discipline-- hunter/jumper, dressage, eventing, reining, Western pleasure, polo, vaulting, etc. We also support equine-related service providers who are incapacitated by a catastrophic injury or illness and can no longer cover their basic living expenses. Our grant recipients have suffered from spine injuries, paraplegia/quadriplegia, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and crush injuries, blindness, degenerative joint disease, cancer, HIV/AIDS, cardio and pulmonary disorders, and other serious health conditions.
