                                What is Show Jumping?
Show jumping is a unique sport with the combination of horse and rider, where woman is equal
to man in the execution. The horse has the muscles, the rider has the control. The Olympic
sport of Grand Prix Show Jumping is best described as a cross between the excitement of
Thoroughbred racing and the sheer daring of the downhill slalom. The rules of the game are
simple: jump an obstacle course of fences without knocking down a rail and within the time
allowed to return for the jump off round- the sport’s version of sudden death overtime. In the
jump off, speed and carefulness are of the essence, the horse and rider with the fastest time
and fewest faults is the winner.

Show jumping spans history, speaks all languages and transcends age and gender with a
contagious spirit. It is family oriented. It instills dedication, courage, confidence and
commitment. There is no sport equal to this unity between horse and rider. Show jumping
events occur every week, last up to five days, and circuits can continue up to seven weeks. It is
the number one equestrian sport in the US. The industry impacts $31 billion on the US
economy, with more than 3.5 million people participating in the sport.

                                    Why Sponsor Me?
Sponsorship is a vital part of my success, just as in many other top level sports, competitors
need financial support to compete at the highest levels, especially in show jumping due to its
high costs and expenses. Financial or product support will allow me to compete at more shows
and travel to more prestigious events nationally and internationally without the worry of
expense. The more experience I am able to get, the greater the chances of reaching my dreams
and goals.

Below is an estimate for some of the costs incurred.

Monthly horse care (per horse):
Board- $500
Feed- $100
Supplements-$150
Bedding- $100
Training- $600
Total- $1450

Show costs (weekly per horse):
Travel- $1000 (average, depends on distance, fuel, hotel rooms, etc)
Coaching- $500
Stalls, entries- $2000
Total- $3500

Other (annual per horse):
Farrier: $2000
Veterinarian: $1500
Insurance: $5000
Total: $8500

Equipment and Supplies:
These can be constantly occurring costs when something new is necessary or needs replacing,
including but not limited to: saddles, bridles, girth, halters, horse and rider boots, blankets,
show clothes, gloves, helmets, and more. These costs can reach up to $10,000 a year.



    “Believe that your goal is attainable, commit yourself to it, though
     barriers may stand in your way, remember…you are meant to be
                         whatever you dream of becoming.”

Goals
“My goal is to compete in the World Cup, my dream is the Olympics.”

I currently have two horses that I will be competing in $25,000 Grand Prixs and High AO classes,
and will be moving up to larger classes, such as $30,000 and $50,000 Grand Prixs.




2009 Schedule
I will compete at the National Western Stock Show, the Arizona Winter Circuit, and hopefully do
more out of state horse shows, but much of that will depend on support from my sponsors!
