Fund Established to Assist McKibben Family

A fund has been established for Michael McKibben, 34, son of Bridlewood Farm assistant trainer Larry McKibben who suffered severe head trauma July 12 when he was kicked by a horse at his father's farm in Ocala, Fla.

Lee Ann Isaacs of Bridlewood Farm helped start the Michael McKibben fund to offset medical expenses for the family.

"They are just a hard-working family who has been in the horse business their entire lives," Isaacs said. "Their medical expenses are going to be astronomical, and that is something they shouldn't have to think about right now."

The family is seeking support from the Thoroughbred community. For more information, contact Isaacs at 352-622-5319, or mail donations to The Michael McKibben Fund, The Community Bank of Marion County, P.O. Box 1570, Ocala, FL, 34478.
