Bluebonnet Launches Horse Owner Assistance Program

24 April 2020 Filed: Events and Fundraisers

We know that the COVID-19 pandemic is forcing owners to make difficult decisions, and we don’t want anyone to give up their horse due to a temporary financial hardship. We created the Horse Owner Assistance Program to provide temporary financial assistance to horse owners who have lost their jobs or suffered reduced hours or salary due to the COVID-19 pandemic and for owners who have been infected with COVID-19 and are dealing with the medical bills. 

This program is not designed to cover all of the horses’ expenses, but we’re hoping that with some assistance people impacted by COVID-19 can hang onto their horses.  At this time, we’re only providing one month of assistance at a time, but you can apply up to three different times (so you could apply in May, June, and July if needed).

Right now, we are giving priority to owners in Texas, since that’s where we are located. We do have a limited amount of funding, so once the funding has been awarded we will be holding all applications until we have more funds.

We are seeking additional donations for the Horse Owner Assistance program, and you can donate via Paypal:

If you receive help from this program, we ask that once you are on your feet you donate to the program so that we can provide help to other horses owners in need in the future.
