Donations/ Non-Profits
The Equestrian Exchange has given away thousands of dollars in gift certificates to therapeutic riding programs & horse rescue groups.  Thank you to our generous consignors who donated their unsold items at the end of the sales to help horses & riders in need.
     Every time you shop at the Equestrian Exchange, you may be unknowingly helping horses, riders, or other animals with your purchases.  Many of our consignors are non-profit organizations who use the sale as an outlet to raise funds by selling excess donations or unneeded supplies.  
     Also, at the end of every sale, consignors are given the option to donate any unsold items.  This is a popular option for those who do not want to attend pick-up. In the past we struggled with a solution on how to distribute these items equally.  What if three horse rescues are all in need of buckets or blankets?  And even though it is gorgeous, who could actually use the XXS vintage Western show outfit?  The items that are donated are quite varied and many of them do not have a practical use when it comes to helping horses or riders.  Our solution was to re-tag and sell the items at the next sale with the proceeds going to the non-profits in the form of gift certificates.  This lets the organization choose what they want and need, whether it is halters, buckets, 78" winter blankets, or a therapeutic riding saddle.   When shopping, be sure to look for the light green tags with the consignor number that starts with DN.  Not only will you be getting a good deal, but you will also be helping other horses and riders.
    To receive a gift certificate, organizations must actually participate in the Equestrian Exchange in one way or another, whether it is consigning, advertising, or volunteering.  This insures that the donations received help horses and riders in the community.  
     Another option we offer non-profits who consign during the sale is the posting of a wish list on our bulletin board.  Shoppers can purchase items and leave them at the front desk and we will make sure that the organization receives them on pick-up day.  Non-profit organizations are also welcome to bring banners and signs that can be hung and displayed as well as set-up an informational table at no charge.
