Strides For Equality Equestrians Announces ‘SEE Month’ Fundraising Drive in October


Strides for Equality Equestrians (SEE) is excited to kick off a two-year anniversary celebration, happening all throughout the month of October in the form of “SEE Month”. SEE’s goal during October is to raise awareness about our mission of opening doors for equestrians from diverse backgrounds while also fundraising to continue our work and future projects.

Opportunities to participate in SEE Month include:

  • Shop our all-new "Horses Unite Us All" merchandise line here
  • Make a minimum $15 donation or set up ANY recurring donation and receive a FREE SEE Tote Bag
  • Donate an item or service to our online auction, which will begin 10/17
  • Bid on items/services in our online auction, which will be hosted via our Facebook page beginning 10/17 through 10/31
  • Share any of our SEE Month materials with your friends!

Unable to make a monetary donation? Simply sharing this email, the SEE month website, or any of our social media posts helps us reach our goals.

These donations and the resulting support and awareness will help Strides for Equality Equestrians bolster its efforts to provide opportunities to deserving riders. Our programs currently include the twice-per-year Ever So Sweet Scholarship (accepting applications for Winter 2022 through 10/15), ongoing Access Program Grants, and maintaining a directory of allied barns and programs around the United States.

For those interested in applying for Ever So Sweet Winter 2022 or a future award, SEE leadership committee member Sally Spickard will host an Instagram Live (@stridesforequality) on Sunday, October 2 at 6 p.m. EST with all three former ESS recipients: Helen Casteel (Summer 2021), Sierra Lesny (Winter 2021), Nora Huynh-Watkins (Summer 2022).
