Sponsorship Opportunities

 

Why Sponsor?

Keeping international level event horses and trying to qualify for these competitions requires more funding than Emily is able to provide for herself. Maintenance of upper level event horses is expensive and they have to sustain a high level of fitness in order to do their best. Time, effort, and money are required to obtain these goals. Emily is a very determined individual that will undoubtedly put time and effort into her goals, but she needs your help financially. 

Budget

On average it costs around $20,000 a year to keep one horse. Below is an annual budget for keeping one upper level horse:
  • Board (Feed & Care): $500 a month/$6,000 a year
  • Training: $4,000 a year
  • Farrier Services: $1,000 a year
  • Vet Services: $2,500 a year
  • Competition Fees: $3,000 a year
  • Trailer and Truck Maintenance: $1,500 a year
  • Equipment: $1,000 a year

Corporate Sponsorships

Any support whether monetary or product are greatly appreciated. All investments are used exclusively for care, training, and competition. If you are a business looking for sponsorship opportunities, there is a significant amount of advertisement associated with horses competing at the upper levels of this sport. Emily travels to many competitions all over the Southeast (LA, TX, OK, MS, AL, GA, TN, KY, FL), therefore your company can benefit from this exposure to the event world. Everyone from competitors to spectators will see your logo associated with a talented event rider. 

Personal Sponsorships

In addition to corporate sponsors, personal sponsors are always valued. We can't adequately express our appreciation for your generous contribution that would allow Emily to take another step towards her goals.

Horse Ownership

You could also be a whole or part owner of a horse that Emily will train and compete.  If a sales horse is something you are interested in there is a profit sharing benefit!  There are 2 options when talking about horse ownership


Option 1: Purchase a decided horse (whether one of the sale horses currently available through our program or an outside horse that is found for this purpose) and pay all costs of shows/farrier/board/vet. ERE will contribute the costs of training, advertisement, showing to clients, etc, and when the horse is sold the partner would recoup the initial investments, and we split the profits. This works well for someone who would like to possibly purchase the horse for themselves after the training process, or is interested in opportunities with several nice young horses. 

Option 2: Syndication - Putting together a team to purchase a horse with the intent to bring it through the levels and sell the horse as it progresses. This spreads the risk through an few individuals, instead of personally. A great opportunity to participate in bringing a talented horse along, and all the benefits of horse ownership without the individual risk. 

 

*Investments can be annual, bimonthly, or monthly
