Lyndon Rife, Seriously Injured and Needs Our Help

Friday, October 16, 2009

Lyndon Rife, from Pilot Point Texas, popular dressage trainer from USDF Region 9 Dressage, was recently involved in a very serious accident.  He suffered broken ribs and a ruptured spleen.  At last report he was in very critical condition and underwent surgery to remove his spleen.  He is in ICU at Denton Regional Hospital, Denton, Texas. Lyndon and Julie now need our help.  As is the case with many of our equestrian professionals, they do not have coverage to pay for these medical bills and will not be working to bring in income. In less than 24 hours, there are already wonderful stories about how the community is helping out.  Some of our Region 9 trainers have already stepped in to help with their lessons and horses in training.  And an account has been set up to help collect funds for them.
Funds can be deposited in the following ways:
  • At a Wells Fargo Bank - make check payable to "Lyndon Rife Medical Fund". Account # is not necessary, but it is: 8429961256.
  • Make check payable to "Lyndon Rife Medical Fund" and mail to:
Sarah Hester
5811 N. Woodcreek Cir.
McKinney, TX 75071
She will send people a response letting them know she received and deposited the check.

There will also have an envelope at the GAIG/USDF Regional Championships in Katy, Texas, October 29-November 1.

Please keep Lyndon and Julie in your thoughts and prayers.
