Ames Construction Charitable Foundation Fundraiser: Educate and Experience!

An AHT Auction sponsored by Ames Construction Charitable Foundation designed to pay it forward! Here's your chance to learn from some of the best!

Dear Friends,
Thank you to all who have donated their time to give back to the Arabian industry.
My dad was concerned about the lack of new people entering our breed, and that our need to make money took priority over putting in the hours and investing in our breed's future. As we grow our community of horse lovers, we also need more breeders.
This auction’s main focus is to educate all. In honor of Dick Ames, experience the Arabian horse and learn from the best in the process!
All proceeds benefit the Arabian Horse Promotional Fund and Cancer research at the Mayo Hospital via the Richard J Ames Fund.
Thank you so much for your consideration.
Lara and Lollie

Crystal McNutt was good friends with Dick Ames and understood his desire to promote the Arabian horse industry by educating people on the versatility of the breed. Crystal reached out to Lara in early December with this wonderful idea of asking various people in the industry to donate time at their farm with them. This would give people the unique opportunity to shadow the best of the best, from trainers, to breeders, to owners, to lesson instructors. Halter, English, western and reining farms are all up for bid. We also have management, equitation and conformation experts. Whatever your interests, it's here! If you know someone who would love to learn about the Arabian horse industry, one of these lots would make a great present as well!

If you do not want to participate in the auction but would like to donate, you can either make a donation on this link or call or email Deb Trebesch  952-228-8771,

All lucky buyers receive 1-3 days of exclusive knowledge from their farm of choice. Pick their brain and learn as much as you can! 

Knowledge is power and growth. Sharing that knowledge makes our breed stronger and our future brighter. Just as it did for my father, this too should bring a smile to everyone's face.

*Buyer is responsible for their own travel, accommodations and food.
