Zara Buren Memorial Fund

While trail riding with her mother on September 21st, our fiercely brave daughter, Zara, became trapped in a marshy bog. In her struggle to save her beloved horse, Monkey, Zara tragically lost her life. Since her passing, the outpouring of support and love from people around the world has been astounding. Though only 14, Zara had a tremendous impact on everyone she met. Her innate kindness, her drive for excellence, her passionate love of animals, and dedication to her horse and the sport of Eventing, drew people to her.

Many have asked how they can help to memorialize Zara with donations, and it has inspired us to think big, just as she did. Our goal is to create a foundation that will focus on helping youth with the desire, talent and work ethic to pursue their passion. Zara worked hard towards achieving big goals, and we're compelled to do the same.  Please help us honour Zara's legacy by making a donation, and helping us make a difference.
