Kentucky Horse Council Launches Online Auction

eBay Auction Created to Support and Protect Kentucky’s Signature Industry

The Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) has launched an online auction to raise needed funds for the 501c3 nonprofit. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many charities to reevaluate their fundraising strategies this year and the KHC is no different, having cancelled both its Prosecco for Ponies event and its Kentucky Equine Networking Association (KENA) dinners.

Hosted on eBay, the auction is now open and will close on Sunday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. All funds raised from the online auction will go directly toward funding key welfare initiatives to keep Kentucky horses safe; supporting horse owners in need of temporary financial reprieve of horse-care costs; and awarding scholarships to Kentucky students with an equine-industry focus.

Auction items include:

  •  Professional drone video of a Central KY farm
  •  Horseshoe plaque from War Front, son of Danzig and a super sire who stands at  Claiborne Farm
  •  Equine feed, supplements, treats and more
  •  Halter from Triple Crown Winner Justify, who stands at Coolmore America
  •  Box seats at the 2021 Keeneland Spring or Fall race meet
  •  Authentic oak wine barrel from Equus Run Vineyards in Midway, KY
  •  Tickets for four to a Horse Country Experience
  •  Tour and wine tasting for 10 at Equus Run Vineyards in Midway, KY
  •  Prints of Thoroughbred racehorses Wise Dan, Afleet Alex, Barbaro and more
  •  Books, artwork, notecards and more
  •  Equestrian-themes gift baskets for horses and humans

Auction items can be viewed and bid on at www.ebay.com/usr/ky_horse_council

Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Kentucky Horse Council, a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization dedicated, through education and leadership, to the protection and development of the Kentucky equine community. For more information, visit kentuckyhorse.org
