Are you involved in any equestrian sport or organization? Chances are, they are a non-profit and rely heavily on participation and donations from members to keep running. If you can join, and/or donate – they will be extremely thankful. But if you cannot help out financially, there are still other ways to give back. Many of these organizations need volunteers to help with events, and MANY other tasks to keep the organization running smoothly.
