The Arabian Horsemen’s Distress Fund is honored to be designated as the charity of choice for those wishing to honor Vicki Bowman as she transcends this world to the next. This life-long Arabian horsewoman continued to make an unequaled impact on the Arabian horse world right up to the day of her passing from cancer, through her unparalleled integrity, talent, and commitment to the Arabian horse and the people that surround them.
In honor of Vickey, the AHDF is proud to announce the creation of Vickey’s Gift, a continuing educational grant for adults over 22 years of age that will be awarded to one deserving individual per year who demonstrates how being the recipient of this grant will enable them to further the best interests and promotion of the Arabian horse and its community.
A third of the dollars generated through In Memoriam Gifts dedications will comprise the available grant dollars, with the remaining two thirds going to the general fund to help community members during times of unexpected crisis. To honor Vickey’s love of all the many horses that were fortunate enough to pass through her life, the In Memoriam program and Vickey’s Gift will encompass those wishing to honor the special horses of their lives who have passed away as well.
