hardship, that you contact us at (647) 355- 4479 or firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may reach out

assistance will be kept confidential and EquineX will do its very best to have all proceeds
distributed within two weeks of receiving them.
EquineX hopes that all of you, your families and your horses come through this very trying
