SONOMA WILDFIRE DEVASTATES STABLES

SHARE

The recent wildfires that burned through Sonoma and Napa Counties were completely unexpected events. The fires erupted after 10 p.m. on a windy Sunday night and moved with explosive speed, giving people no time to prepare. Numerous stables burned to the ground, with loss of human and animal life, and loss of all the tack and equipment that people owned.

Quite a number of our friends — people who have been our students or event sponsors — have been affected. Equine Studies Institute is coordinating a relief effort and we are asking for your monetary donation in any amount. The money will be used to assist people in replacing tack, especially saddles, that were destroyed in the fires.

Donations can be made either electronically or by check. Electronic payments can be made through PayPal; direct payment to ‘drdeb@equinestudies.org‘ and put a note in the comments box that the money is for Sonoma Fire Relief. Make checks payable to Equine Studies Institute, and send to Dr. Deb Bennett, P.O. Box 411, Livingston, CA 95334.
