For more than 15 years, the Equestrian Aid Foundation 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.
