MOVERS AND SHAKERS OF THE HORSE WORLD PRESENTS LOUISE SMITH OF THE EQUESTRIAN AID FOUNDATION
Listen to the REPLAY HERE:
The Movers and Shakers of the Horse World’s 2017 season continued with the Equestrian Aid Foundation’s (EAF) Executive Director, Louise Smith, on Tuesday, August 22nd at 7:00 p.m. EST time. We enjoyed hearing life altering stories of hope and resilience and learning how the EAF is keeping equestrian dreams alive.
“An equestrian's life can change in an instant, so anyone who has ever been involved with horses can relate to Equestrian Aid’s mission,” Louise said. “We are ready to reach out to horse lovers across the country and, together, assist even more equestrians facing serious health challenges to overcome adversity and get back on their feet.”
Since joining the EAF as their Executive Director in March 2016, Louise continually provides expert leadership through her 20 years of experience in marketing, program development, fundraising, and administration. As a dressage rider and horse farm owner herself, she also brings a strong dedication to the Equestrian Aid Foundation’s mission, and a deep empathy with the challenges that their grant recipients face.
The Equestrian Aid Foundation has provided over $2.7 million in needs-based grant support and a promise of hope since its inception 21 years ago to breeders, farriers, grooms, riders, trainers and other members of the equestrian community who are facing life-changing or life-threatening health crises and need help to pay for basic living and rehabilitative expenses.
