Newly Formed Ocala-based Equine Assistance Program Helps Owners In Need

Formed just 18 months ago, the Ocala Horse Alliance is already doing what it sent out to do: assist area horse owners in need. The organization established an emergency fund to assist Marion County horse owners who require financial assistance to keep their horses fed during the COVID-10 pandemic. The brainchild of area resident Ellie Trueman, the Alliance hopes to provide assistance so owners don’t have to sell or re-home their horses.

The Emergency Feed Fund for Horses solicits financial donations from local community and business members. The financial donations are then given to recipients in the form of feed and hay vouchers to Ocala-based Berretini Feed Specialists,  who have partnered with the program. The vouchers can be used on any mix of hay or grain, and recipients can reapply for assistance after two weeks.

Applicant and recipient information is confidential, and any horse owner can apply, no matter how many horses they own.
