Between 200-300 horses were turned out from corrals in Paradise, California as the wildfire in Butte County approached. They ran for their lives, and are burned, injured, scared, hungry, and thirsty. They can't graze; there is no food. The creeks are dry this time of year.
The horses, when they are caught, are being taken to Camelot Equestrian Park. Farmers are delivering feed to Camelot for the rescued horses. Unfortunately, it most likely will be months or years before A) the horses are reunited with their owners, B) the owners rebuild the stables, and C) the jobs come back.
As of Wednesday, November 14, there are 50 displaced horses located at Camelot Equestrian Park that need immediate attention and care.
The Horse Park is hopeful that our generous members and community members will support Paradise and the Camelot Equestrian Park by making a contribution to directly assist the rescue center (Camelot) that has graciously and selflessly opened their facility to these displaced animals for the unforeseeable future.
Monetary donations can be made by check or credit card.
Checks can either be mailed directly to CEPF or can be dropped off at The Horse Park at Woodside's Main Office. All monetary donations should be sent to the following address:

What do you get when you combine an aviation engineer, a successful amateur rider, and a galloping event horse? The answer, it seems, is the man who has made a massive contribution to the work of the FEI Eventing Risk Management Committee, and his name is David Vos.
