For those of you who have been coming to our farm over the years, you are aware that we do our best to keep fees as reasonable possible while continuing to make improvements that benefit all who come to the farm. We have been able to do that by doing the majority of the work ourselves but Dave & I aren’t getting any younger and we still have to buy materials and pay for work that we can’t do ourselves.
With all the expense that we incurred with the recent facility improvement we have thought long and hard about passing some of the expense on to you, the competitor. We could charge higher entry & schooling fees, add a grounds fee or office fees. Although some entry fees have gone up slightly we have decided that we will not be charging grounds fees or office fees at this time. As a result of that decision, we are going to try the sponsorship route this year.
Asking for money is not something that I enjoy doing and I’m not very good at but here goes. Please check out the new Sponsorship page and see if there is a level of sponsorship that works for you or perhaps you might know someone who would like to become a sponsor. Any type of sponsorship no matter how large or small could go a long way to help us to continue with improvements while keep fees stable. But we NEED participation!
We’re hoping that many of you will see the benefit to you, your horses and the sport participating in our quest to have a vibrant sponsorship program. Thanks for your consideration. We’re looking forward to hearing from you and to another busy season!
