    Dear SCCHA Members,

    The wildfires raging in California have affected all of us who care about horses.  It is frightening to know some of our friends are in danger, and heartening to hear that hundreds of horses have been safely evacuated.  IMPORTANT:  We have been advised by those coordinating evacuations that private citizens driving in to help may actually hinder rescue efforts.  Please keep the roads clear for evacuees and safety personnel!

    As of Thursday 10/12/17, the Equine Evacuation Units in Santa Cruz and Santa Clara counties have NOT been activated.  The SCCHA showgrounds has NOT been activated for evacuations.

    SCCHA wants to help members seeking shelter for themselves and their horses. Accordingly, the usual 4-day limit will be extended to 7 days for members and their guests evacuating from fire zones.  Dogs must be leashed or penned at all times. Owners must stay with their animals.  Information and paperwork will be available from our groundskeeper, Tricia Dalton.

    The SCCHA board has heard from many members who want to help fire victims.  In response SCCHA is donating $1,000 to send hay to evacuation centers.  

    We’ve also compiled a list of agencies seeking volunteers or donations
