Stolen Horse International Educational Program


Posted at Monday, April 1, 2013 in General


Stolen Horse International will be at the Ohio Equine Affaire the second week of April to help educate the public about missing horse issues.

Harold and Debi Metcalfe will leave their home on Tuesday to start the drive to Ohio so they will be in Columbus in time to start the booth set up Wednesday morning. The event starts on Thursday.

This event as well as our other public events are a very important part of our educational program but are also very costly.

Many of these programs have been cut from our 2012 budget and many more will be cut in 2013. We need your help to continue this important outreach program to help us with the cost of the events.

Approximate cost for the Ohio Equine Affaire, our largest and strongest event are:

  • Paid staff for 6 days - $0
  • Booth $1000
  • Electric $50
  • Wi-Fi $89
  • Motel $400
  • Gas $200
  • Food $200
  • Supplies $100

For example, Debi and Harold have breakfast down to a little over $3.00 by eating off the dollar menu at McDonalds. Unfortunately food at the event during the day is not inexpensive. There is also an evening meal to be considered. So, by donating just $10 you will help with the cost of one meal.

If you can find it in your heart to make a donation towards this event it would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps you could donate for one of the items in the above list. If not, any and all amounts are helpful.

 Thank you for your generosity and your help.


Purchase your microchips from Stolen Horse International and help us continue to help missing horse victims with your purchase. We do not use companies that sell the 900 numbered microchips. All proceeds support our Victim's Service and Educational Outreach projects.
