Help Carl Get Back in the Saddle

Carl and Tammy Bledsoe are well known among equestrians in North Georgia and beyond. On October 26, 2021, Carl suffered a severe fracture of his leg while training a horse. The severity of the fracture and duration of recovery is extensive, greatly impacting their ability to earn income from training horses, teaching lessons, and conducting clinics. While they are attempting to continue earning income, the holidays and winter weather are not conducive to horse activities for many people.

The majority of medical bills are covered by their health insurance, however, personal expenses and livelihood, along with care for their personal horses are their greatest and urgent need. To compound the situation, Tammy has not completely recovered from rotator cuff surgery, yet she has assumed the complete responsibility of the demanding work of maintaining the farm.

Carl believes in education and understanding by having compassion and empathy for the horse by speaking out regarding the best equine practices. His greatest desire is to treat the horse with kindness and without harm resulted in him walking away from a lucrative career that he could no longer justify. Tammy and Carl are no strangers to adversity, yet despite setbacks, have stayed
true to their mantra, "I am for the horse."

We believe the horse community will be eager to show compassion and empathy for Tammy and Carl. Starting a GoFundMe page was the last thing they wanted to do, but we, along with other friends understanding their plight, felt this was the best platform to let the horse community and beyond understand their situation.

Help with horses is what initially led Pam and Susan to Carl and Tammy, and since then, our respect has grown and developed into a friendship. To learn more about them and their mission, please visit their Facebook page, Just Gait.

We want to thank you in advance for your donations to help Carl and Tammy survive the next few months until Carl is back in the saddle!
