#GivingTuesday: Equestrian Aid Foundation

Editor’s Note: Today, Jumper Nation is focusing entirely on #GivingTuesday, a global movement to remember after a weekend of shopping and splurging to give back to those organizations who are having a huge impact on their respective communities. We’ll be sharing stories and letters from organizations who directly impact the equestrian community, and we encourage you to give back what you can. Thank you!

Dear Friends,
Despite the natural disasters and tragedies that have tested our resolve in 2017, the Equestrian Aid Foundation has maintained its commitment to critically ill and injured members of the equestrian community. This year:

  • Claudia, an amateur dressage rider, was able to continue her cancer treatment, even after her farm was ravaged by Hurricane Irma.
  • Alena, an equine technician coping with the after-effects of TBI, received specialized therapy that will expedite her return to work and college.
  • Steven, a dressage trainer whose career was cut short by multiple critical illnesses, can afford basic living expenses.

And there have been so many more members of our equestrian community who have benefited from the compassion of people like you.

Today, you can double your impact by taking advantage of a year-end matching grant.  Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000.


Will you please open your heart? Watch the video below to learn more about the people whose lives are touched by the work we do.

Your compassion will create a brighter future!

Thank you!

Stephanie Bulger
