Description

WARHORSE Endurance has been asked to create a challenge that would benefit the horses that have been displaced and injured during the invasion and assault of UKRAINE.  In response to this we asked for suggestions of a trustworthy organization to pair with and The Foundation for the Horse was highlighted to us, The Foundation for the Horse is the charitable arm of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP).  

 

The Foundation for the Horse has posted this statement on their page: 

"The Foundation responds quickly after storms. Now we must respond to help horses, animals and caretakers impacted by the war in Ukraine. 

Happening Now: Veterinary support for displaced horses and animals from Ukraine

We have made enquiries with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) to see whether coordinated efforts are being planned to provide veterinary support for animals that are being brought across the Ukrainian border into neighboring EU countries and will publish further details if and when available. These organizations, including the Vets for Ukraine and the International Fund for Animal Welfare, have published helpful information for people fleeing Ukraine with their animals and lists of organizations that are raising funds to support those both in and around Ukraine who are working to protect animals caught up in the conflict. Devoted to the health and welfare of horses, The Foundation for the Horse stands ready to assist equines and their caretakers during these crises."

 

WARHORSE Endurance will be donating a portion of the entry fee to The Foundation for the Horse- and they will give the donations to the connections they have found that are assisting the horses of Ukraine.   

 

 

*We are opening this challenge before the final design of the completion awards is made so that you can start working on your miles now.   The designs of the medal and the pair of conchos will be slightly different, the concho will be a sunflower design and the medal will be a horse design with light blue and yellow. The logo on this sign up page IS NOT the design for the award.  We are just opening the challenge asap as per requested and the design will be added later on. 

 

If you are interested in trying a virtual event that rewards you for you effort, gives you community and cheers you on towards your goals, then read on: 
 
Do I need a horse to do this challenge?  No, you don't.  You can walk, run, ride, hike with or without a horse/dog/family.  The medal challenge really comes down to what you want the challenge to mean to you.  
 

Do I need to do all the miles all at once?  No, you can do a mile per day or any combination of days/miles to equal 100 miles.  
 

What is the STARLIGHT 100 Challenge?  You choose to log either your hours working with your horse or miles.  We will send you a beautiful custom medal on a horse sized neck ribbon, an embroidered patch and a bridle concho. 

 

What does count for hours: Riding, ground driving, hiking, walking, running, biking.  Grooming, ground work, driving, riding and spook training etc.


Hours or miles?
