This year alone, ElectroBraid has supported over 20 non-profits in both the United States and Canada by discounting or donating fencing supplies and accessories to these organizations. 

Andrea Itnyre, Category Segment Specialist, ElectroBraid said, "The benefit of the services these non-profits provide, from therapeutic riding centers to horse rescues and sanctuaries, are immeasurable. Knowing costs are a large factor, Woodstream looks for opportunities to provide them with the necessary equipment to keep their horses safe and their programs running smoothly." 

Since its inception in 2000, ElectroBraid has aided over 200 non-profits including therapeutic riding centers that help at risk youth, juvenile probation departments, equine assisted experiential learning and psychotherapy programs, children and adults with disabilities as well as wounded military personnel and veterans.  "Many of the non-profits we work with are a part of PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International)." 

ElectroBraid also donates its products to horse rescues and sanctuaries, like The Pegasus Project, that take in horses that are at risk, neglected or bound for slaughter.

Allyson Decanio, president of The Pegasus Project, said, "As a non-profit horse rescue organization, The Pegasus Project is always grateful for assistance from horse-oriented businesses. The discount offered to us by ElectroBraid allowed Pegasus to complete the construction of our facility, and the nice folks there assisted us in every way in calculating precisely what we needed. They were courteous, timely and supportive. They make the best horse-fencing around!"
