Problem Solving Horse Clinic to Benefit Monument Fire Victims
Heidi Vanderbilt is hosting a benefit clinic on July 23 in Benson, Arizona, for victims of the Monument fire that burned the mountains near Sierra Vista last month. That fire and others in the area affected a lot of endurance riders, some of whom had to evacuate. Many of their conditioning trails burned--some are still smoldering. The clinic is to help all victims of the fire, especially evacuated and abandoned horses. Some of the horse rescues burned. Some folks had to leave their animals behind.
The benefit at LuckyPup Ranch is in the form of a clinic (see flyer link). Five trainers will work with horses and owners on any problems they have. The trainers are each donating about 30 hours (!) over five clinic dates to help out. We also have wonderful items donated for raffles--Kevin Meyers and Easyboot have donated FOUR PAIRS of boots! --with more items coming.
If anyone wants to donate items to raffle or sell, or donate money to help with feed, it will be appreciated.
