It would be difficult to be unaware of the events facing Ukraine right now.
As Jim Eyre, British Equestrian Chief Executive said:
There are more than 100,000 horses with potential risks to their safety, shelter, and care. To attempt to meet the needs of the equine community in Ukraine, The Ukrainian Equestrian Federation has put out an urgent request for supplies such as feed, forage, and shavings.
In response to this, the British Equestrian community is joining forces to ensure that aid is directed where it is so desperately needed.
With the combined efforts of the British Equestrian (BEF), The British Horse Society (BHS), the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA), British Equine Vet Association (BEVA), World Horse Welfare and others in the industry, British Equestrians for Ukraine has emerged.
At EC Pro we have always held horse welfare close to our hearts. Like others in the equestrian community, we wanted to play our part in helping. So, we have provided a direct donation link across all our platforms. This will help raise awareness to nearly 250,000 riders and the ability for them quickly donate, securing much needed supplies for the Ukrainian equine community.
