Remember, you can buy things as small as a bag of carrots for CANTER ponies as well a week stay in Argentina.
Please go support CANTER through bidding on and/or donating to the auction. If you've nothing to sell and don't want to buy what is being sold, just give cash at www.canterusa.org/midatlantic.
And if you need a particular reason to donate, last week I lost my beloved mare who I adopted directly from CANTER two short years ago. You can see her progress from a CANTER listing to a very nice jumper through the link in my signature. Help give other horses the chance to change someone's life like Eve changed mine.
People, remember you don't just have to contribute horse stuff. You can donate your time, your cooking or your spouse! Big items in the past have included a day of farm labor, baskets of goodies to ship, and shawls from India.
Ask your local vet clinic to donate some vet wrap, the local horse show to donate a division at a horse show, or the local tack store to donate a pair of gloves. Offer up yourself for 4 hours of jump painting or a day as a baby-sitter. Ask your local hunt to donate a cap fee or donate the cap yourself. Top notch braiding jobs are always a popular item.
Or you can clean out your tack trunk and finally get rid of that bridle that is too small for your current horse, or the Mattes pad that doesn't fit your saddle. Used or new is fine, as long as the items are clean and accurately advertised.
The goodies and services need not be limited to the Mid-Atlantic area, the more widespread the options, the more wide-spread the bidding, more bids mean more money for CANTER.
