The Professional Protection Fund, Inc. is a non-profit corporation that will provide trainers, owners, and exhibitors a defense team of professionals in the event that there is a situation in which the DQP and/or veterinarian passes your horse at inspection and the USDA checks your horse and states you are not in compliance and a federal case is brought. 

Membership for this fund is $400 annually and the fee will only cover one individual. Each trainer, owner and exhibitor must pay this fee to be covered. This fee must be paid prior to showing to be eligible.
