We want to thank our horse family from one coast to the other for the generous donations that are coming this way. Fundraising efforts by the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Racing Association and the Thoroughbred Racing Association of Oklahoma for equine related losses from the tornado are still underway. We want to thank our horse family from one coast to the other for the generous donations that are coming this way.

Unfortunately few of the horse people will be eligible for State or Federal Agriculture disaster funding available to many of the rural livestock owners to assist with debris removal, barn and fence repair or replacement as horses are not classified as production agriculture.

“Our fundraising will be targeted to help all horse owners, not just those in the racing industry although we will take care of our racing people too,” said Debbie Schauf, Executive Director of the OQHRA. OQHRA and TRAO with the assistance of the Racetrack Chaplaincy Equine Disaster Response pastors are now working to identify those individuals who were impacted from the Oklahoma tornado.

If you know someone that needs assistance or if you were impacted by the storm and will let us help you with funding to replace your equipment, fences, barns, etc. we urge you to apply for assistance (CLICK HERE for Application!). Our benevolence committee will review information and document the losses and then make recommendations for payments.

If you would like to contribute to our efforts to help these victims rebuild their lives, you can donate in a variety of ways: Mail a check to OQHRA Benevolence c/o OQHRA P.O. Box 2907, Edmond, OK 73083 and mark it for Tornado relief. Call 405-216-0440 to make a donation with your credit or debit card.
