The equestrian community of Wellington, Florida is leading a movement to unite equestrians across the country with the mission to keep children safe in schools and to remember the victims of school violence. Last month, 17 people were shot and killed along with more than a dozen who were injured at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida just less than an hour from Wellington. Joining the movement, The Chronicle of the Horse, the nation's leading equestrian magazine is inviting equestrians across the country to submit photos or videos of themselves and their horses holding a #RideForOurLives sign. Tomorrow is the Developing Jumper Championships at the Winter Equestrian Festival. All money won by Starbuck Equestrian will be contributed to @parklandcares. Gun violence needs to stop. Please join me in #rideforourlives Saturday, March 24th where horses and riders will stand together in support of the mission to keep children safe! Thank you Heels Down Magazine for the interview. @heelsdownmag @chronofhorse @starbuckequestrian
