Horse Aid Live

Formed in July 2009 during the height in the number of abandoned, homeless, and unwanted horses, Horse Aid Live was created as a way to help fund 501(C)3 organizations that do the hands-ons work of helping horses of every breed, or mix of breeds, become productive, happy, healthy animals.

In 2010 we held our first "Live" event, Rock To Ride, was a concert event featuring five bands with attendance of more than 1200. Later that year, the inaugural Horse Aid Live Combined Test and Dressage Show was held at Masterson Station Park in Lexington, Kentucky, where it continues the first Saturday in August.

This annual horse show is open to horses of all breeds. The 2015 show will utilize four dressage rings, with classese for classical dressage, gaited dressage, and western dressage. The show is sanctioned by the MidSouth Eventing and Dressage Association and the Kentucky Dressage Association. It is also affiliated with the Western Dressage Association of America.
Horse Aid Live awarded its first ever grants in December 2011. Grants applications are open to any recognized 501(C)3 organization in the United States that retrains, rehabilitates, shelters, retires, and/or rehomes horses. We received, literally, stacks of applications. Recipients were chosen based on many factors relative to the budget/size of each organization with an emphasis placed on the number of horses that would be served, the focus to retrain and rehome, and the amount/percentage of overall budget spent on salaries and administrative costs.
