Manhattan Saddlery + The Rider's Closet Holiday Launch Party December 18

Great news, NYC horse-lovers! Manhattan Saddlery is now the New York City donation drop-off partner for The Rider's Closet, an EQUUS Foundation program founded in 2006 by Georgina Bloomberg to provide donated equestrian apparel to riders in need at any age and every level of the sport.

Manhattan Saddlery is hosting a festive launch party and shopping event from 5-7pm on Wednesday, December 18, to celebrate the new partnership. All guests who drop off new or gently used riding apparel (no helmets, please) will receive a discount on Manhattan Saddlery merchandise as a thank-you gift for their generous apparel donation. The event is open to the public, and light holiday refreshments will be served.

Georgina and The Rider's Closet/EQUUS Foundation team will be there to thank you personally and share news about The Rider's Closet's work on behalf of riders in need, as well as the EQUUS Foundation's mission to protect America's horses and strengthen the bond between horses and people.

EQUUS Foundation

Initially created as an assistance program for scholastic riders who were unable to afford equestrian apparel, The Rider's Closet merged with the EQUUS Foundation in 2019 to further expand its operations and serve a much more diverse community throughout the U.S.

While high school and collegiate riders are still a significant percentage of the recipients, those served now also include therapeutic horsemanship participants, volunteers and staff; young equestrians heading off to camp; volunteers and staff working with equine charities; pony and 4H clubs; and a variety of individuals who ride or work with horses in other capacities. The common denominators are a desire to participate in horsemanship activities and a need for some assistance in getting the apparel required for participation.

Join us on December 18th
