Sierra is a horse rider that rides with us for shows and lessons. She's apart of our barn family and we love seeing her improve more and more each day. on June 10th our barn went to PAS (Ohio State Fair Qualifiers) Sierra and her horse Axel, were going in for English and were doing amazing the entire time. It was their first year. Many months before the qualifying show, they worked so hard to prepare. The two became such a great team together, they were ready. Once at the show, they qualified in a class! She had two more to go! We all were confident knowing she'd go to state! Later on in the show her horse got tangled up in a canopy. This led her horse to run out of the fairgrounds because it was badly scared. Running then into an intersection where her horse was then struck by a car.. later on throughout the night her horse had a seizure and passed away soon after. We made this GoFundMe for her and her family to possibly help her buy a new horse so she can continue on riding. We also are making it so the family can use it as the please, that could be paying for different expenses such as vet bills. We are giving 100% of the money to her and her family. We all love Sierra and her family very much and all of our hearts are hurting from this situation. We all know what it's like to have a connection between you and your horse... it's like loosing a family member. We would like to reach for $2000.00 to help her and her family help pay for the expenses and possibly get another horse just as amazing and beautiful as Axel in the future.
