Rachel was injured in an accident and has lost part of a digit and temp loss of use of another. It will take her some time to get back on her "hands" doing her job as a horse trainer. Lets help her with her medical bills while she heals.

Friends and Family of Rachel Shackelford, let's all help her get back on her "hands" again by gathering some extra funds for her while she heals.

Rachel was involved in an off highway vehicle accident on 10/28 resulting in the loss of her index finder and damage to her middle finger. She has some expensive out of pocket medical bills. Additionally, since Rachel's profession is as a Horse Trainer she will be limited on her horse training abilities until she heals and gains full use of her left hand again, however she will still be able to be still coach riders and give lessons. 

For those of you who still would like trail or arena lessons or coaching, she is still making herself available as long as you can help groom and saddle the horses, she can still ride safe and trained horses at this time. Please continue to recommend Rachel and schedule lessons with her to help her get back on track financially during this tough time. Rachel is an excellent coach for riders helping them gain confidence and skills out on the trail with their horses. Contact her on her facebook page at Shackelford.Equine or 530-210-9213. 

As you can imagine her hand injury is VERY painful and will be wrapped up for quite some time. Think about how many things we all use both hands for and imagine doing everything - getting dressed, washing hair, driving, typing, riding with one hand!

If you have the ability to contribute ANY funds to Rachel it will be much appreciated. As her friend I have set up this fundraiser so it's easy and linked directly to her own PayPal account. Rachel will know who contributed so she can thank each of you personally. 

Rachel is staying wonderfully positive throughout this traumatic experience. Let's all come together to continue to support her and help her out where we can. Feel free to share with anyone else who may be able to help.
