Help with funding and sponsers?


I am absolutely in LOVE with horses and dressage. I am very ambitious and am looking to compete in Young Riders and hopefully the Young Rider World Cup with my current horse and then move on to Brentina Cup Pan Am games and eventually the Olympics. However my horse will not be able to do all of these things due to age and talent. I need to start gathering funds now in order to buy a younger international prospect and plan a training trip to Germany. How does the young unproven dressage rider find funding and sponsors? Does anybody know of a place where people who love dressage and would like to support its future riders are? Any Young Rider veterans out there have any tips on how to get help with expenses? I am very willing to work hard.

Thank you any and all help is appreciated

Your best bet is honestly to contact Robert Dover. He is a super nice guy, just fire off an email. He has a program/website right now for riders looking for owners and syndicate ownership which is a really great idea. is the site.

I'm in a similar boat right now. I have an owned horse to declare for PAG 2015 on but am looking for an Olympic prospect and having to sell my current horse who is very confirmed at small tour and schooling all the YRGP movements.
If it were possible I would love to have a sponsored/owned horse but my current horse is as sale-able as ever and to get to Europe and buy what I need for Tokyo I have to have the money :( Very sad as he is my fur baby..

First thing to know is that you must be willing to make a lot of sacrifices to make it to international competition, and everything must always be for sale, or sale-able. Sponsorship on a large scale is extremely difficult to come by unless you come from money or have a very good family friend with money - my advice is to marry rich!!

Good luck!

They say money doesn't buy happiness -- well happiness doesn't buy horses!
