From Shannon:

Hopefully you are lucky enough to know or at least meet Amy Barrington at some point in life.  Amy is an incredible person who’s shy, kind; unassuming demeanor is infectious to be around making her a friend from the start.  Amy is an accomplished horsewoman who keeps her goals modest for her riding personally and coaches many to accomplish their dreams in eventing.  Not only is Amy wonderful, her family – husband Greg and son Ben – are wonderfully supportive and kind themselves.

Unfortunately, Amy fell from one of her horses many weeks ago and suffered a brain injury that required surgery and left her in a drug induced coma.  Amy has since been allowed to come out of the coma on her own, however the challenge of a making a full recovery is ahead of her and her family.  We eventers are a big family and always pull together in the time of need, especially when it comes to one of our compatriots in need.  Amy, Greg and Ben need our support at this time.

Many great items have been donated by several companies and individuals and put up on eBay for all of you to bid.  [Link to Auction]  Please be generous in your bids as 100% of the proceeds benefit Amy and her family.  You can search the products on the list and to make sure they are part of the auction, there is a note in the description stating such.   The auction is now open and runs until Friday, October 25th.  Items will be shipped to you at the end of the auction.  For customization of your purchased item, you can email Shannon Lilley at [email protected], upon winning your item.

A huge thank you goes out to all of our donors and to you generous people who are bidding on all the fantastic items!
