The holiday season can be a difficult time for those struggling to come back from a serious illness or injury. While most people spend December decorating and buying gifts, catastrophically injured or sick people spend the holidays agonizing over being out of work and facing medical bills and mortgage payments.
Luckily, there is an organization that helps sick and injured equestrians. The Equestrian Aid Foundation formed in 1996 to provide financial assistance to those in the horse industry. Last year, the Wellington-based nonprofit started a holiday program to grant wishes to recipients for things that fall outside of their normal scope of assistance. The Wish List program was a huge success last year. EAF hopes to once again make the holiday season a little brighter for its recipients.
