Aid Foundation Establishes Fund for Injured Rolex Rider

The Equestrian Aid Foundation (EAF) has established a fund for Laine Ashker, an eventer who was injured on April 26 during the cross-country phase at the Rolex International Kentucky Three-Day Event in Lexington, Ky. The EAF fund will assist Ashker and her family with medical and rehabilitation expenses.

Ashker's progress has been chronicled on her Blog, which is frequently updated.

The EAF, a membership-based nonprofit organization, uses donated funds to provide various essentials that might include medical needs, health insurance, food and housing, transportation, physical therapy, and more.

Recipients of EAF assistance usually remain anonymous. This is the seventh dedicated fund established to date. Some of the previous accounts include Ralph Hill in March 2007 and Darren Chiacchia in March 2008.
