The Equestrian Aid Foundation is putting the "fun" in "fundraiser" by hosting the upcoming "Who Reins Supreme" event in West Palm Beach, Florida on February 1.
The Friday evening fundraising event pairs a clever moniker--"Who Reins Supreme?"--with a unique competition between teams of world-class equestrians from dressage, show jumping, hunter and polo.
Their challenge for the evening, in the name of fun and fundraising, will be to tackle a custom reining test of speedy spins and sliding stops--on a real reining horse.
The team with the highest scores wins bragging rights to "Who Reins Supreme?" across multiple equestrian disciplines. The event also features special guest Tom McCutcheon, World Equestrian Games' reining double gold medalist who will judge the event with wife Mandy.
The stars are lining up to participate, too--I just saw Chris Hickey's name on the list of elite equestrians who'll try to hang onto a spinning reiner.
The Equestrian Aid Foundation is a national non-profit that provides financial assistance for those in the horse community suffering from catastrophic illness or injury throughout their time of need.
EAF grant recipients receive funding for medical, healthcare, rehabilitation and essential expenses, such as food and housing.
The only problem with the event is that you can't attend--because it is already sold out.
You can, however, still make a donation: go to http://equestrianaidfoundation.org
