Kim has ridden and competed her entire life with the goal of making the Australian Team so this is a dream come true! She left a corporate director level job to pursue her passion in 2003. Kim has funded her own training and competition expenses along the way. She has developed Leonardo from a gangly 3 year old into an international dressage horse over the past 5 years. At 8 years old, Leo, will be one of the youngest horses at the event! Most riders at this level are competing on horses owned and paid for by sponsors.
Our goal is the raise $10,000 to offset travel expenses, training and living expenses leading up to and during the competition. Entry fees alone run $1,700! Kim plans to spend as much time as possible working with her coach prior to the event but this will be driven by how much money we raise. Kim will be living in her trailer and Leo in tent stabling to minimize expenses! Any donation of any size will be greatly appreciated and used to pay for Leo's expenses (hay is $17.50 per bale in Florida!) training, entry fees, diesel to haul to Florida, etc.
Donations can be made through this GoFundMe link or checks can be made out to Kim Gentry Dressage, LLC and mailed to 9580 Spring Meade Lane, Germantown, TN 38139.
Thank you for your support! We are so excited that Kim and Leo made the team!!
