On Friday, June 3, Aaron and Mallory Vale of Morriston, Fla., lost their home to a fire. While no people were injured, they lost their beloved dog, Roo, and many priceless items such as photos, trophies and heirlooms.
Aaron Vale has been a fixture at the Roanoke Valley Horse Show for many years, winning the $50,000 Grand Prix of Roanoke 12 times. Vale has more than 170 Grand Prix wins and over $3 million in prize money throughout his illustrious riding career.
A GoFundMe account has been created to help raise money for the family.

With all those winnings, and I’m sure home insurance, why do the Vale’s need GoFundMe? With all the truly needy people out there, I think this is going too far.
Because when you lose everything you have people rally to support. This is my sister and her husband. I don’t care how much money he has won. The horse community rallied to support one of THEIR fallen. Shame on you for even thinking like that.
