We are kicking off our annual fundraiser for the Equestrian Aid Foundation which will be held March 1, 2012 immediately following the FEI jog at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby at the beautiful tropical show grounds for the International Horse Sport Series in Loxahatchee, Florida with an exciting announcement, our highlighted auction item, a breeding to the best dressage horse of all times- Three-time World Champion, Three-time world record holder Totilas has been generously donated by the Totilas partnership of Paul Schockemohle and Ann Kathrin Linsenhoff of Germany. How did this happen?
I have begun the process of promoting the items we will be offering at our annual event with guest of honor Courtney King Dye as we begin the promotion of this event to be held in two weeks, Thursday evening from 5-8 at the Dressage at Equestrian Estates location in Loxahatchee, Florida. I sent e-mail to Betsy Juliano good friend of Dr. Ulf Moeller and the world famous PSI Sporthorses in Germany to inquire if this could be possible.
In two days it was a done deal! Dr. Moeller ran our proposal and description of the Equestrian Aid Foundation with Paul Schockemohle and Anna Katrin Linsenhoff and it was approved without hesitation. We are deeply honored and grateful to the Totilas Team for this exciting and generous donation, which will be offered along with a list of incredible donations, gift baskets, and services provided by the Dressage community, as well as our annual Celebrity specials including Super Bowl autographed memorabilia and rock star items.
For more than 15 years, the Equestrian Aid Foundation in America has delivered financial assistance to equestrians, horsemen and equine professionals who are suffering from catastrophic illnesses or injuries throughout their time of need. Funding for medical, rehabilitation and basic expenses - such as food and housing - enables our recipients to cope through crisis to get back on their feet. The Equestrian Aid Foundation is dedicated to helping people from all riding disciplines, equine professions, backgrounds and ages. The EAF relies on the equestrian community to "take care of their own" through donations and memberships.
So stay tuned as we add items daily, and continue with news and information of how to bid. Here is the chance for the Dressage Community to donate to one of the first and foremost charities created by Dressage Olympian Robert Dover and partners to provide financial assistance and support to our community in need.
