The live auction will be only available for the event guests and includes five different vacation packages.

Other opportunities to donate include sponsoring for the care of a CTREE horse, donating the riders' scholarship or purchasing a $100 raffle ticket for a chance to win a Hermes Birkin bag.

"We operate out of Wolffer Estate Stables in Sagaponack, NY, and all riders and programs receive scholarship assistance, and one-third of CTREE's riders receive additional financial aid," Bocksel added.
