USEF mobilizes wildfire equestrian relief aid

From the Newstrader - July 5th, 2012 - Newstrader

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Fires blazing across the Colorado landscape have together burned more than 100,000 acres in the past few weeks, displacing many horse owners. The U.S. Equestrian Federation (USEF) asks that equestrians, equestrian fans, and all people who share a love for horses make a donation to the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund. Cooler weather and calmer winds are helping firefighters in Colorado contain the blazes, but the cost of relocating, feeding, and caring for horses is a burden that local residents and humane societies will carry long after the fires have ceased.

To help deliver aid, the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund has been established with the goal of getting horses the help they need, when they need it.

“It is important to understand this fund is a dollar in and a dollar out,” says John Long, CEO. “Nothing is withheld.”
