If you are interested in assisting with either the Hunt Seat or Western events, we are seeking the following corporate sponsorships:
Ribbon Sponsorship (limited to only 1 sponsor per tournament) ~ Thank you Nutrena for sponsoring Hunt Seat ribbons in 2014!
Rider Breakfast ~ Thank you Plaid Horse and Smith Brothers for signing on to our 2014 tournaments!
Other ways to support the tournament:
Ribbon Prizes – It is customary to provide a gift to the winners of each class in addition to their ribbon. In the past, these gifts have included saddle pads, photo frames, mugs, key-chains, or small horse-related items. We would like to work with you to design a prize that includes appropriate advertisement of your product. Sponsorship includes a free one half page ad in both our prize list and day of class program. Any product or service materials (business cards, pamphlets, etc) provided will be distributed in participant goodie bags and any advertisement banners hung in the arena at the event.
Participant Gift Bags - Our organization also needs small thank you gifts for participants and are hoping to collect product samples for participant gift bags. We are also offering a free one quarter page ad in both our prize list and day of class program. Any product or service materials (business cards, pamphlets, etc) provided will be distributed in participant goodie bags and any advertisement banners hung in the arena at the event.
I hope that you will consider sponsoring a division or the ribbon gifts to help us achieve a successful event for the alumni riders. This is an innovative and relatively inexpensive way for your business to create a relationship with potential repeat customers. Please consider my proposal and contact me with any questions.
***Prize Listing Complimentary Ads must be received by February 1, 2014, Program Ads and any promotional materials or goodie bag items must be received two weeks prior to the event.
