The equestrian community offers its deepest sympathy to those who are in mourning, offers gratitude to those who are bravely helping, and shares the feelings of shock and sadness with all the families and friends whose way of life was shaken by the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
To honor the memory of those lost and to help those who are still suffering, USA Equestrian is proud to partner with its affiliates nationwide and establish the United Equestrian Relief Fund. Managed by USA Equestrian, Inc., all contributions received will be directed to the American Red Cross disaster relief efforts in New York City and Washington, D.C.
