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:

Finding a penny on heads is pretty lucky, but finding a Penny that has a mane, tail, and talent to boot? Now that’s grounds for an eventing prospect. Mix a little luck and a lot of experience with the right opportunity and that’s the exact recipe that Area VII eventer Jacqueline Cameron found herself smack dab in the middle of in April 2021.
With less than 20 days remaining until the United States Eventing Association American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds at Rebecca Farm, to date over five hundred entries have been received. Entries for the event close on August 16, 2022. Those entrants in the AEC championship divisions this year are qualifying under the requirements that have been in place for the last several years. However, for those intending to compete at the 2023 AEC in Kentucky, the USEA Board of Governors have approved a strengthening to the qualification requirements.
The USEA Board of Governors (BOG) concluded a productive two days of the August BOG meeting on Wednesday, August 9th in Dulles, Virginia led by USEA President Max Corcoran. All but four BOG members were able to attend in person this year. Many key items related to eventing in the U.S. were discussed at great length including safety, membership strategies, competition procedures, visibility of the sport, and more over the course of the two-day gathering.
