The drop-off site for donated items will be at the NSBA booth at the 2013 All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio.

The National Snaffle Bit Association Foundation is collecting donations of gently used show equipment and show clothes that will be forwarded to individuals and therapeutic riding facilities that have riders with disabilities who are interested in showing. The drop-off site for donated items will be at the NSBA booth at the 2013 All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio.
 
Show tack, including new and used show saddles, head stalls and items, such as halter or bridle bags, sheets, blankets and coolers that may have been won can be put to good use by therapeutic riding facilities.

Show outfits, both hunt seat and western and chaps of all sizes, youth through adult are needed, as well.  

Every effort will be made to forward donated items to a therapeutic riding facility that can use them. If it is determined that an item is not appropriate for distribution or after a reasonable amount of time the item has not been able to be forwarded to a therapeutic riding facility, the NSBA Foundation may sell or otherwise dispose of the item.  Any profits from the sale of a donated item will be used by the Foundation to defray the costs of operating this program, support other aspects of the NSBA Riders With Disabilities programs and/or to purchase items that have been requested but are not available.

The NSBA Foundation is a 501(c)(3)charitable organization. Upon the receipt of the donation form and donated items, a letter will be mailed to each donor which may be used for tax purposes.
