Rider sponsorship - Once again this year, we are asking for your financial help for the ride, by asking you to approach your local tack shop, feed supplier, farrier or other company to make a small donation to the Ride and they will receive, in return, an acknowledgement in the Golden Horseshoe Ride Programme. For a simple acknowledgement of their sponsorship for a particular rider the cost is £15 or, alternatively, they may wish to take out a Half Page (£20) or Full Page (£30) advertisement (black & white) or Full Page colour advertisement (£50).
If you would like a link to your own website, we shall be happy to include this on our Links page – the cost for this is £10 per link.
There is no limit to the number of sponsors any one rider/horse may have!
