Lexington, Ky. – Thanks to the generosity of donors and the equestrian community, the USEF (US Equestrian) Disaster Relief Fund raised and distributed over $400,000 for equine relief efforts during and in the recovery from Hurricane Harvey. The USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund continues to provide aid relief for horses affected by natural disasters.
As the Texas, Florida, and western states’ communities and others assess the destruction and impact brought on by storms and wildfire, the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund continues to receive pledges and donations to help those who are leading the efforts for equine care in the disaster locations.
Money donated to the fund is held by US Equestrian in an account dedicated for this purpose and distributed only upon authorization of the US Equestrian Chief Executive Officer. Any donation to the Equine Disaster Relief Fund is a timely and efficient benefit for horses and horse owners in need. Make a donation to the USEF Disaster Relief Fund today.
Developed in 2005 during the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund helps ensure horses’ safety and well-being during trying times. Since its inception, the fund has received more than $700,000 used to prepare for disasters and assist equines of any breed who are victims of disasters including but not restricted to hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, blizzards, and fires.
