US-American Kent Farrington won the Grand Prix at the Rolex Central Park Horse Show and decided to donate his prize money of 71.280$ for the victims of the hurricane in Florida.

When asked about his decision to donate to the hurricane relief effort, Farrington remarked: “I am a resident of Florida, my mum lives there and had to relocate to New York to stay with my sister after the hurricane. We were lucky that the hurricane relocated to the other side of Florida but some others weren’t so lucky. I feel very fortunate to be travelling the world and competing for prize money. This event is all about showcasing our sport and I thought it was a great opportunity to do something for people that could use it.”
