Michelle Crunkhorn is a grade 4 Paralympic Dressage Rider. Michelle has a congenital disability: her left arm finishes just below the elbow. Apart from the left arm she is an able-bodied person. Michelle is looking for help and support to make her dream come true. Michelle had a dream to compete at the London 2012 Paralympics and lost it. "Diamond, the horse that she bought for London 2012, suffered a severe case of laminitis in January 2010. Laminitis is a very complicated hoof problem which we believe was caused by a shock to his feet by snow. A very long battle to try to get him sound to be brought back in to work failed and sadly he was put to sleep in July 2012. This was a very difficult time for Michelle. The 2012 Paralympic Dressage team was announced and she had to sit at home watching it. Michelle is now looking to achieve the dream of representing Great Britain at the Rio 2016 Paralympics. Michelle was talent-spotted for her riding abilities after the Sydney Paralympics in 2001. She won a Bronze medal in the 2003 World Championships, was part of the Athens 2004 Paralympics and the 2005 European Championships and in 2007 she won team Gold at the World Championships. Michelle had high hopes for Beijing but the horse that she had been riding was retired after the world championships, which left her with no horse. Michelle bought Diamond, thinking forward to London 2012. In 2010 it all went very badly wrong for her; as a family we did everything possible to try to get Diamond sound. Luckily Michelle was given a horse (Sam) to ride which kept her riding and kept her hopes alive. This year we bought Sam for Michelle and she has started competing him. After not competing for over two years Michelle has started to look to the future again. With sponsorship she can make her dreams come true. Please contact us and look at Michelle’s website to see all of her career results both in Para Dressage and British Dressage. Any sponsorship would be greatly appreciated - it will help with training, travel and competing at shows. Opportunities will also be available for sponsors to have their name on the necessary clothing, merchandise and the horsebox. Sponsors can also attend shows and come to training days or visit the home stables. Please contact Michelle". Contact: Michelle Crunkhorn. Address: 112 Cotgrave Lane, Tollerton, Nottingham NG12 4FY.

The Sunshine Tour UK is delighted that The All England Showground, Hickstead has invited it back to hold its 2017 championship at their prestigious venue for the third year. The Sunshine Tour UK is a national championship for unaffiliated competitors of all ages that compete either for fun or as a springboard into affiliated competition. Following the overwhelming success of the 2016 championship, it is quickly establishing itself as one of the most popular national unaffiliated championships within the equine community. Competitors are already wildly excited at the prospect of competing at Hickstead again in September 2017. Qualification events will take place across the country from January to August in Dressage, Show Jumping, Showing and the Eventers Challenge, allowing competitors to qualify for, and compete in, multi-disciplines. Immediately after the 2016 championship, new venues began to enquire as to how they can become a Sunshine Tour qualification venue for 2017, increasing the already established base of 140 registered venues. The championship, since its expansion and move to Hickstead in 2015, has seen over 1,500 horses compete each year, resulting in a footfall of over 3,000 people. Winners and those taking part are showered with beautifully designed rosettes, sashes and prizes, including rugs and jackets. Securing sponsorship to cover the cost of the rosettes and prizes would allow the championship to be even more generous with its prize giving; having the funds to enable the distribution of rosettes to all children that enter the championship, even if they are not placed, is on the wish list for 2017. The Sunshine Tour is seeking sponsorship from companies that have an interest in reaching and supporting grassroot, unaffiliated and amateur competitors, that would like to share in the show's success, be part of its growth and benefit from the fantastic marketing opportunities it offers. The Sunshine Tour UK offers varied sponsorship packages that can be tailored to suit the sponsor's need and budget. Benefits for the sponsors can include ongoing advertising throughout the championship season (not just at the event itself), through its website, Facebook page, venues and qualification cards and, if required, the Sunshine Tour can offer a trade stand space at the event to boost the sponsor's sales and profile.

This is an opportunity for sponsors to be involved in a popular sport which is thriving after Team GB's Olympics success. Hannah Doggett is an up-and-coming young dressage rider who is looking for sponsorship to fulfil her aim of competing internationally next year. Hannah has trained with international Grand Prix rider Lisa Marriott for four years and took her previous horse up to advanced level. However, injury to the horse left Hannah with no ride. Fortunately Lisa stepped in and offered Hannah the ride of a lifetime on Lisa's international horse, Saphira. Saphira has won thirty-six first places, twenty second places, has qualified for five national championships and been invited to compete internationally at both Biarritz and Seville. She is trained to, and has competed at, Grand Prix level. Hannah aims to be competing her at most of the premier league shows all over the country next year, as well as qualifying for the regionals and the nationals and being invited to international competitions. Hannah moved from the north west to the south east where there are more opportunities for developing her talent and furthering her career. She is 100% dedicated to success. Hannah would be interested in and grateful for any form of sponsorship. Sponsors would have their name on clothing, merchandise and the horse trailer. Contact: Hannah Doggett.

The compulsory music and marking system used for FlaTwOrkMUSIC competitions was originally created for use in conjunction with current British Dressage Freestyle2Music testing. The objective was to help redress the current system's imbalance of having 70% of marks being awarded for technical merit while allowing only a subjective and arbitrary 'general impression' mark for the music element. Consideration was also given to the fact that current competitors who have music professionally fitted to an existing floor plan are in fact gaining advantage from a skill that is not theirs. The newly written Compulsory Music system underwent extensive trials in New Zealand. The trials themselves were very successful, and the choices of attractive music and simple application concept gave rise to many 'straight dressage' competitors asking to run the compulsory section as a stand-alone competition, so that they could experience the joy they witnessed in others riding to music. The standalone competitions went ahead at Level 2/3 (Novice/Elementary) in three New Zealand venues with all entrants completing questionnaires about their experience. The overriding conclusions as to why so many dressage riders had not previously ridden Freestyle2Music were related to a lack of ability and time needed to produce suitable music for themselves: costs of having it done professionally were also a major disincentive. While everyone who took part perceived that they themselves were more relaxed and that their horses moved better while riding to music, they believed that sourcing suitable music and the editing required to make an acceptable soundtrack for Freestyle was a skill unrelated to equestrianism and many found the prospect of doing it themselves bemusing.

Mairi Page has had highland ponies all her life. "Throughout the years, we have had many successes in the show ring and we have bred many prize winning ponies. As a gamekeeper's daughter, I observed and, indeed, worked with the ponies on the hill as stalking ponies as they brought the deer off the hill and carried panniers for the grouse. My aim is to carry on traditional working, by hiring out my ponies and myself for stalking and for pannier-carrying on the fishing/grouse beats. This said, the same ponies have to compete in showing, dressage and show jumping, all of which are within easy reach of the breed. The Highland Pony Society uses the motto 'Highland Pony - the versatile breed'. I travel to high profile events and compete amongst a great variety of people. Most are agricultural shows in Scotland, including the Royal Highland Show which sees 20,000 people per day over four days come through the gates. The opportunities for advertising there are immense. With the ponies being stabled on site throughout and being one of the largest visitor attractions, advertising would be relatively easy. The dressage competitions, in which I compete, to date have seen me qualify for various Finals, which in turn takes me further afield to more walks of life. The ultimate goal is to travel into England and compete in the qualifying events for The Horse of the Year Show and Olympia Championship at Christmas. These opportunities are all possible with the right sponsorship. Travelling costs and general costs of keeping horses mount up. However, with the assistance of a sponsor, it would be beneficial to both parties. I am no stranger to advertising and more than keen to 'sell' a product. Once I believe in someone and something, try getting me off the subject. However, the advertising available to you as a sponsor could be far-reaching and profitable: decals on my trailers, your emblems on my horse rugs and banners around my stable at shows, together with the obvious links on my own website and Facebook page. I have had numerous wins, including at the Royal Highland Show when one of my mares won the Supreme Championship. Lately, we have come home with Championships from the Nairn, Black Isle and Grantown shows and we have also qualified for local dressage finals". Contact: Mrs Mairi Page.
