Equiventures is charged with the task of making sure that our venues are as good as they can be - with footing being of utmost concern to all riders and owners as they work their valuable horses over our grass courses.
Our biggest challenge is providing first class footing during the winter's drier months. We must start the process as early as possible but have limited resources as we recieve no funding for most of the year.
We need to aquire a good Aerator that can be used during the wet summer months to improve turf quailty at every event and at each venue that we are responsible for. Borrowing or renting this type of eqiupment, days before a competition is not sufficient and we cannot afford to rent equipment year round. Buying an Aerator will give us a real opportunity to make the going much better for all horses as they are campaigned at our events - if every competitor contributed around only $25 we would have what we need!
Equiventures has aquired most of the equipment it needs - such as tractors and trailers, jumps and dressage areanas and has brought online two new venues over that last 12 months - all with limted resources. An Aerator would take us much closer to our goal in making Ocala, Florida the center of excellence for the sport of Eventing.
Please give what you can - and help us make the footing better for your horses!
