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:

Florida-based Swedish rider Jennie Jarnstrom-Dennis galloped around clear and fastest of the day on Saturday to take the lead in the inaugural CCI4*-S, sponsored by B&D Builders, at The Event at TerraNova. Jarnstrom-Dennis and her Hanoverian mare Flower Girl (Futurist x Lucy) were fourth after dressage on 30.8. Not a single horse-and-rider combination made the optimum time; she added 10.8 time penalties to lead on 41.6.
Fresh off a top 15 finish in the CCI3*-L at the Maryland 5 Star, Cosby Green is back in Lexington attending class at the University of Kentucky (UK). The 21-year-old is an undergraduate student, a team member and the social chair of the UK eventing team, has two upper-level event horses, Copper Beach and Highly Suspicious, and a young horse, McCreary, who she rode on the winning team of the 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships.
Course designer Pierre Michelet's cross-country courses for the 2021 FEI Eventing World Breeding Championships for Young Horses at Mondial du Lion were extravagant as always and put young horses to the ultimate test in the 6- and 7-year-old Championships. The 2021 Holekamp/Turner Grant and The Dutta Corp. Prize recipients Cole Horn and MBF Cooley Permission to Land (Cobra x Deeply Dippy K) move forward after the final phase sitting in 30th overnight on a score of 55.8.
The inaugural Event at TerraNova kicked off with dressage on Friday at Terranova Equestrian in Myakka City, Florida. In the CCI4*-S the first rider down the centerline Leslie Law (GBR) took the early lead riding the Irish Sport Horse Typically Fernhill (Dondoctro Ryal K x Castlefield Sarah), owned by Craig McCallum, on 27.2. He maintained the lead through the lunch break and then Sara Kozumplik Murphy and her syndicated Selle Francais gelding Rubens d’Ysieux (Balougran x Orenda d/Ysieux / Mr. Blue) took the top spot with 26.1.
