To everyone who supported Horse World Gives Back – from making donations, shopping on Retail Day, tuning in to the Radiothon, and spreading the world as we work to help our fellow equestrians. We would especially like to thank our corporate donors, Radiothon guests, and volunteers.

Horse World Gives Back is bringing the horse world together in a fund raising drive to benefit the people and horses affected by the recent flooding and tornadoes all throughout the country. Let’s show the world the what a caring and compassionate people we are!
Still Time To Donate!
Missed the Radiothon and Retail Day? No worries – there is still plenty of time to donate! All funds are going to directly to the organizations below, so please stop by and make a donation directly. No amount is too small and every little bit makes a difference.
There have been so many people affected by the flooding and tornadoes in the United States that we felt it was important for all of us in the horse world to support both horse owners and non horse owners. That is why we are encouraging donations to both the following charities:
American Red Cross: Since March 31 the Red Cross has served 2.1 million meals and snacks, opened more than 200 shelters and distributed more than 1.1 million items like tarps, work gloves and cleaning supplies. It’s estimated that Red Cross relief operations for the disasters that have struck the U.S. since the end of March will cost as much as $41 million. To date they have not raised enough to cover that cost, and hurricane season kicks off next week. Donate Now
US Disaster Equine Relief Fund: Administered by the Kentucky Horse Council (tentative) to provide aid and relief to horse owners affected by disasters. Funds are distributed through local horse councils throughout the US. Please Donate Now
Retail Day proceeds will be split between the two charities helping both humans and horses.
