CRESTVIEW — Family and friends are doing what it takes to make sure Hanna Greenfield competes in the country's second largest Arabian horse show.

It'll cost almost $3,000, including registration fees and travel costs, for the 12-year-old to participate in the Arabian Horse Association's Region XII in May in Perry, Ga., horse trainer Marissa Brown said.

Trainers at The Equestrian Center in Fort Walton Beach hope fundraisers help the Baker School student and her horse, Espania, a 20-year-old Arabian mare, make it there.

So far:

●An anonymous donor contributed $1,000.  

●Leslie Gilchrist is selling Mary Kay products and donating 80 percent of proceeds.  

●Brown created a gofundme.com account that has raised $75, as of this writing.
