about the wsbri hard-knocks fund 

We consider the Washington barrel racing community family, and we created the Hard-Knocks Fund to support that family. 

As a program, our goal is to have backup funds to support any member of our community in a crisis. If a Washington barrel racer or gamer is in need of financial support due to a personal or family tragedy, we are able to give them that support directly through our Hard-Knocks Fund. 

This program is funded directly by you, our barrel racing family. 

We raise these funds in three ways: 

  1. Monetary donations ​​

    • Your money gets transferred directly to our fund to help members of our community in crisis.

  2. A bi-annual silent auction

    • We accept product donations that you can purchase through out twice-a-year silent auction. ​

  3. A 50/50 Raffle

    •  You purchase raffle tickets, and at the end of the year we draw a winner to receive 50% of the raffle ticket proceeds. The other 50% goes directly into the Hard-Knocks Fund.

The Hard-Knocks silent auctions are held in the Spring and Fall on, and the dates and times are posted below. In order to participate, all you need to do is make sure you visit this page at the time of the auction.


We highly recommend following us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date on Hard-Knocks Auction dates, times, items, and other information.
