A Call to Action: Southeastern Tornadoes - Donate Now to the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund

From the USEF Communications Department



The duo of tornadic storms that devastated the southeast United States last week left a wake of splintered wood, shattered glass, downed power lines, despair and shock for the residents of towns like West Liberty, Kentucky and Harrisburg, Illinois to clean up and recover from. As if that weren't enough, one of the region's heaviest snowfalls of the year came down on Sunday night and further hindered an already difficult recovery process. For some effected residents the physical and monetary burdens of recovery are intensified by the need to care for their horse or horses. It is in times like these that the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) calls on you to aid them by donating to the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund.




With the support of USEF CEO John Long we ask that equestrians, equestrian fans, and all people who share a love for horses make a donation to the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund. These recent storms have struck the heart of horse country and have made the cost of relocating, feeding, and caring for horses overwhelming. With your help we can do our part to make sure horses are not overlooked, forgotten, or abandoned and help to relieve the burden of effected horse owners and caretakers in this and in future times of crisis. To most effectively deliver aid this fund was 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," adds John Long, "nothing is withheld." Any donation to the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund equates to timely and efficient help for horses and horse owners.




Having originated during the aftermath of Hurricanes Rita and Katrina the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund was formed to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of horses during trying times. Money donated to the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund is used to prepare for disasters and assists equids of any breed who are victims of disasters including but not restricted to hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, blizzards and fires. Money donated to the fund is held by the USEF in an account restricted for this purpose. Money from the fund can only be disbursed upon the authorization of the USEF Chief Executive Officer.




Donations may be made online at www.usef.org by going to https://www.usef.org...terRelief.aspx.




If you wish to contribute by check, please make it out to the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund and mail it to: The United States Equestrian Federation, 4047 Iron Works Parkway, Lexington, KY 40511.



The vision of the United States Equestrian Federation® is to provide leadership
for equestrian sport in the United States of America by promoting the pursuit
of excellence from the grassroots to the Olympic Games, based on a
foundation of fair, safe competition and the welfare
of its human and equine athletes.

I haven't been on here much lately but I wanted to post my personal loss. I was wiped out by two tornados that went through my place Friday afternoon. I won't go into detail but I just wanted to say that my life has taken a very dramatic turn. I had six horses and lost six horses--4 Arabian mares, an Arabian colt and a Half-Arabian gelding. I was at work when it struck and when I got home, 4 horses lay dead and the other 2 were severely injured and had to be euthanized. My barn was gone. My house was gone. My fencing was gone. My truck and trailer were gone. There is nothing there but small pieces of things. My truck was found 1/4 mile away and my 3-horse, gooseneck trailer has not even been found.

I am physically fine and I will be fine overall in the future. I have wonderful friends and family that are keeping me going forward. I tell people that offer help that by just caring and thinking of me and my family as we pull ourselves up by the boot straps, it is enough.

I have no horses to rescue and care for now. I am living with a good friend and I still have my business. I have lots of work to do but I know it will get done in time. Like so many of you here, I am an Arabian horse lover. That's not going to change but it will take me some time to be back where I want to be.

Be good to one another and hug your horses.
David


Unreal what happened to so many. I feel for you and everyone that endures castrophy at this level. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am on spring break as of midnight tomorrow. Have chain saw (know how to use it too) and will travel! You only need to PM me and I can assist your clean up.
