EN is delighted to host an online auction on behalf of Carolina International for a beautiful custom jump, with proceeds benefitting Hearts 4 Heroes United States. H4HUS is a non-profit organization that provides equine-assisted and canine-assisted therapy to U.S. veterans and active duty military suffering from physical and psychological impairments, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
“For the past three years, H4HUS has provided dozens of military volunteers to the Carolina International, all of whom work tirelessly to oversee our key logistical needs including pedestrian and equine road crossings, parking arrangements, and equine and rider safety efforts,” Jane Murray, Organizing Committee co-chair, said.
“Eventing would not be where it is today without the amazingly generous time and energy given by all of our volunteers and for that, we are hugely appreciative. The Carolina International is proud to support those that have so valiantly served our country and to merge these wonderful volunteers into our eventing community in the Sandhills of North Carolina.”
This “Spanning The Globe” jump was designed by Brody Robertson Custom Show Jumps and Marc Donovan, Carolina’s show jumping course designer, exclusively for the CIC3* and CIC2* courses at this year’s event. Proceeds from this auction will benefit the wonderful work of H4HUS, so please bid generously!
The jump has a retail value of $2,800, and the starting bid for the auction is $1,000. The auction will close at noon EST on Tuesday, April 26. The winning bidder will receive two jump standards, one plank and four jump poles. See below for more information on the jump and to place your bid. Good luck!
