•Fundraiser just for internationals, will need ongoing support•
Hello, It's Tegan! I'm a Para Horse Rider and Black Disability Activist from Bristol on a journey towards earning my spot on a Paralympic team. This year to stay on track I aim to compete with Coco at my first international competition (3 day long event). To attend such an event I also have to bring my team of Coach, Groom, Mumager and of course, the horses which as you can guess adds up. When you consider transport, accommodation, stabling, entry, etc... the estimated cost is £1,500. But even to get to an international we have to do a few things along the way - earn points at local competitions, attend training events and qualify by competing at the Festival of Para Dressage!
This year I also aim to get some horse transport as right now I'm having to hire which has its restrictions and is quite costly. I'd love to get a small horse lorry that my parents and I can drive, that has a small amount of living space (a bed would reduce our accommodation costs) and some storage for my wheelchair and therapy equipment. It would be amazing to be able to take Coco out more to different events - competing, training or social. The cheapest cost (without sponsorship) for a 4.2ton automatic lorry with living is £27-£35K.
With your support a donation of ___ could go towards:
£10 - extra bag of bedding/haylage
£20 - competition entry
£40 - months horse feed
£60 - a training session with a top-level coach
£80 - a set of horse shoes (needs new ones every 6 weeks)
£100 - transport hire for an event
If 100 lovely people donated £15... Internationals here we come!
Any support is MUCH appreciated. Please spread the word and this page. If you know of anyone that might be interested in sponsoring me, offering support or wanting to get in contact please do!
