The Maryland Horse Shows Association recognizes that this is a time of great uncertainty for all of its members. There are many of you that may be feeling anxiety about paying your bills and feeding your animals. With this in mind, MHSA is offering a Limited Relief Fund for current MHSA members. To be considered please fill out the attached application and send it to the MHSA executive committee at mgrabill@mcdonogh .org. The applicant must state their need for money and must attach a receipt for reimbursement. The money will only be given as reimbursement for purchased items. All applications will remain confidential and will only be viewed by the executive committee. Decisions will be made within a two week time period and checks will be mailed out within that time.
