My Name is Katelyn Kok
and I am in love with Dressage!
My partner in this sport is named Morgan Enshoj (Mo), a 9 year old Danish Warmblood. I'm writing to ask that you consider supporting me this winter as I set off for three months of intensive training with Lendon Gray with the goal of representing New England at the 2013 North American Junior and Young Rider Championships. This is the beginning of my long-term goal of one day representing the Unites States in world competitions.
Dressage is a core component of my being for. For the past 4 years, I've been a working student, immersing myself in a full time equestrian lifestyle. This winter, I'll be training in Florida, combining a full time riding schedule with a full time college schedule. Dressage is a very technical and challenging equestrian sport, for both horse and rider. This is my calling, and I'll remain dedicated to furthering my capabilities in this sport, and helping those around me, to learn and further this art. But this sport is also prohibitively expensive, and that is where Mo and I need your help.
I was incredibly blessed to be accepted into the Emerging Dressage Athlete Program's Winter Intensive Training Program out of many applicants from all over the United States. This program will cover rider fitness, cross training, nutrition, sports psychology, media training, horse care, riding theory as well as riding instruction from top international riders. The program is three months and based in Wellington, FL, which is the center of the equine competition world in the winter. Being in this program is a huge step in my career as a rider and will help me to become a well-rounded competitive professional. The cost of the program is $2500 a month. This does not include housing for the me, meals, vet and shoeing of Mo, competition fees, and transportation.
So, where do you come in? Mo and I need a support team! As part of our support team, I pledge to not only fully dedicate myself to this program, but to do everything in my will to hold up my end by continuing college, training whole heartedly, and spreading the knowledge I learn to you and the dressage community.
With your help, I will work to make that happen.
Thank you for your support!
