Giving Thanks. As we engage our friends across the country in this ambitious one-day campaign, we are also asking horse-lovers everywhere to join us in CELEBRATING the hard working, dedicated and invaluable farriers who take care of our horses’ hooves 12 months a year, no matter the weather, and keep their hooves happy and healthy.

We invite all of our “friends of the herd” to join us on social media, sharing thanks, photos and appreciation for farriers around the world.



About the TRF Farrier Fund

There’s no argument around the world and across the broadest reach of horse-lovers everywhere that a horse’s health is tied directly to the health of its hooves. Across the nation, the TRF relies on the expertise, caring and hard work of dozens of dedicated farriers (otherwise known as Blacksmiths) to tend to the four fragile feet of our aging equine athletes.

This amazing team of equine podiatrists help us and our herd all year long, through all weather and all seasons. As we rally our friends of the TRF Herd today, we will be sharing our heartfelt thanks to this extraordinary group of “heroes for the horses” whose hard work is at the heart at of our mission. It is our donors, like you, who enable us to provide this quality of care with each of our horses. We are thankful to you for this support!

About Giving Tuesday

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. 

TRF has set their sights on raising funds to cover the cost of three months of farrier visits for our beloved herd of aging horses (and hooves).

This #Giving Tuesday campaign is a timely opportunity to extend a bit of the holiday spirit to these beautiful animals who depend on the safe, secure and lifelong sanctuary of the TRF when they are no longer able to compete or pursue second athletic careers.

Your small gift will add your voice to the friends of the horses who cannot speak for themselves. Please consider kicking off your holiday giving season with a gift today!
