It’s Back!!! CANTER Mid-Atlantic Online Auction Fundrasier

August 08, 2013 By: janwest Category: What's Happenin'

Bid On Over 100 Exciting Items During the CANTER Mid-Atlantic Online Auction Opens August 14!

 

Rockville, MD (August 8, 2013).  CANTER Mid-Atlantic’s popular online auction fundraiser is back and bigger than ever: Bidding starts August 14 and ends August 21.  Proceeds from the event go directly to the care and training of ex-racehorses that have been donated to CMA. Graduates of the CMA re-training program evaluated for soundness, suitability and athleticism – have found successful careers in eventing, foxhunting, show jumping, dressage and more.

I Yam a Mandate, aka Tater, is a fabulously quiet guy looking for that perfect home where someone wants to wander through the woods, through the creeks and pop over a log here and there. Standing about 15.2, but currently round as a whiskey barrel, he would fit a variety of people comfortably and make them feel secure in any situation. An old injury means Tater can’t do heavy jumping, but he is very happy going for trail rides and doing some flat work. Available free to the best home, he is currently living in Frederick, Maryland, where he is working on his amazingly robust figure. Tater is a very light cribber and controlled with a strap. For more information, contact CANTER Mid Atlantic, or email allie@canterusa.org or call 301-980-0972.

The auction helps CANTER horses!
