BARREL RACERS TAKING CARE OF BARREL RACERS…
Imagine one day you’re at a barrel race going through the ally, you realize as you’re turning into the first barrel that the ground conditions are worse than you expected. Your horse slips and sustains an injury to his splint bone. You take him to your vet to only find out a major surgery is needed and at that point in your life this is an unexpected bill you weren’t prepared for and are unable to cover.
That’s why we created the Emergency Relief Fund. When you sign up for Vet On-Demand, 10% of your payment every month is taken and put into the fund. When a barrel racer faces a circumstance like the example above, they submit a form telling us the amount needed and story behind what happened. We share the stories (we don’t include names of the barrel racers to keep confidentiality) with all active members of Vet On-Demand and they vote on who should receive the funds.
Once the community votes on who should receive the funds, we then distribute the money directly to the medical professional or facility providing the treatment. Whether it be a rehab facility or veterinarian office. Funds are distributed directly to the professional to prevent any issues or concerns.
