Hannah Westdorp is a 15-year-old junior rider, registered with British Showjumping. "I am writing to you regarding an opportunity for your company to sponsor me in furthering my show jumping career. I've been a British Showjumping member since 29th February this year and have been jumping since April with my pony Saltare Hugo, a 145cm Welsh x Quantock. When we bought Hugo in March 2014 he was very overweight, unschooled and had never jumped before. Since I've had him we have had regular training with Yvonne Thompson, who was a Grade A showjumper in Zimbabwe for over twenty-five years, and has trained hundreds of young riders, of which a substantial few went on to be very prestigious in their fields. In four months of jumping with BSJ, we have been in the top three placings at most of our events, and have recently qualified for the National Pony Bronze League Final, which takes place at Stoneleigh Park in August. We have also qualified for the Bamburgh Novice Masters Championship at Scope festival this August, and have got through to the Second Rounds of the Pony British Novice Championships for 2016. Hugo is currently about 30 points away from moving up a grade from JD to JC. I am so very proud of what we have achieved in such a short time. I have always contributed to the expense of living my dream by doing yard duties and exercising horses in exchange for livery and training; but I have reached my limit as to how much I can personally help with the rising cost of transport, competition entry fees, vet bills, extra feed and supplements, rugs, clothing, shoeing, etc. Sponsorship would be an enormous help and enable me to continue success within British Showjumping".

Mia Brown is an up-and-coming, extremely talented young show rider looking for sponsorship to help her achieve her dreams and beyond. Mia has only been riding twenty months and in that time has gone from a riding school pupil, loaning a "starter pony" and moving on to buying her own 13 hands pony. "In less than a year together they have already won so much - and missed out on qualifying for the Horse of the Year Show twice by only one place! Fantastic results especially when we didn't think we would be ready to compete at that level this year. Mia is only eleven years old, and owns Bronheulog Sunny Boy, who was a novice Show Hunter Pony. Together they have achieved so much in so little time - learning and growing together. She took Supreme Champion at Shropshire County Show and was successful at several other championships, winning show hunter at Newport Show, Canwell Show, Oswestry Show, National Equine Stars and many, many more. They have already been offered a prestigious training scholarship with Richard and Marjorie Ramsay - only one scholarship place is offered each year. Next year Mia will be attempting to qualify for the Royal International and the Horse of the Year Show, travelling around the country to various events. We will be searching for a bigger pony next year, of Hoys quality to keep up with Mia's ever growing legs! Mia is based near Nantwich, Cheshire and attends her local high school, being in her first year of senior school. Mia is not from a wealthy family and all monies are ploughed into helping this talented young rider progress. Any sponsorship would be hugely welcomed and extremely valued". Contact: Shannon Brown.

The north's premier equestrian venue, Northcote Stud offers a comprehensive and extensive range of equestrian services. Its highly experienced team of staff are carefully chosen, based on their work ethic and expertise to compliment the world class facilities, which have been endorsed by riders who have competed at both Nations Cup and Olympic level, in dressage and showjumping. "In early June, 2015, our first young horse championships was a huge success and drew the attention of both equestrians and non-equestrians from all over the globe via our live stream. Northcote Stud Young Horse Championships had a wonderful atmosphere and was attended to capacity on all four days. Companies involved in the event had their brand exposed to around 10,000 customers across the duration. The 2016 running of the event promises to be even bigger with more competitors and a larger audience - and your brand/product could really benefit from the exposure we can provide".

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.

Here's a chance to help a young boy fulfil his dreams, become part of a fantastic sport and have your company gain recognition within an environment full of opportunity. Robbie is a young, up-and-coming show jumper who entered the sport in 2009. He has excelled up through from beginner's tracks, where he won the 70cm league title for 2010 for Scotland and Northern England and has since moved right up to the maximum heights, jumping the Grand Prixs and internationals. In 2011 he was picked to represent Scotland at each of the international events throughout the four home countries, where he picked up two silver and one bronze medal from the four events. He had his first attempt at the last Horse of the Year qualifier late summer 2011 and missed out by only two placings. His aim now is to attempt to qualify for the next Horse of the Year and Hickstead International show, win Gold for Scotland at next year's International and finish in the top three of the 13.2 Scottish league. Sponsorship will enable Robbie to travel to the necessary shows to jump these qualifying rounds and will give him the maximum chances of success. Any sponsorship will be greatly appreciated and opportunities will be available for sponsors' names to be printed on tack, clothing, transport, etc. to achieve coverage around Britain at the premier circuits. Further opportunities may also be agreed. Contact: Robbie Mason. Address: 34 Glenbervie Wynd, Irvine KA11 4DL. Tel.: 01294 31168. E-mail:


Stuart Muirhead (thirteen years old) is a very successful showjumper, competing at BSJA level and unaffiliated. "My son, Stuart, has been riding since he was five. He also takes part in JumpCross, gaining a 3rd in the Young Riders Challenge Final at Grange Farm, Peterborough, this year. His profile can be seen in the news section of
www.jumpcross.com. He recently won Bronze with his BSJA Junior Academy team at the inter-academy competion. He also won an individual 5th at the same competion. His bedroom wall has in excess of 190 rosettes! Stuart is looking for assistance with his means of transport for getting his ponies to and from competions. We have a very good friend who allowed us to use her horse trailer for the last three years; but she now needs to have it back. Stuart will now be unable to fulfil his dreams and take part regularly at competitions. He would love to be in a position to compete for his country in showjumping - it's all he does, he loves his ponies and dreams of one day competing at the Olympics. Personally I would say he is a natural rider and has the ability to fulfil this dream, just not the funding to allow it to happen. We would be more than happy to show your company logo on our saddle cloths, clothing and transport and be part of any advertising campaigns you may have". Contact: Christine Muirhead.
