Eventing has always been regarded as a family sport, by this we mean the whole community is a family. For the first time ever Eventing SA are sending 3 teams to compete in the nations cup in Zimbabwe. We will compete in the Shield 80cm, 1 star Cup and the premier 2 star class, all on our own horses (no borrowed horses) total of 11 SA horses. We will go head to head against Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia and Swaziland. Our riders who are sending their own horses are giving up so much to make this happen, which includes 3 weeks of quarantine time on their return, never mind the length of time these horses will spend in getting there. We will be sending 1 truck and 2 horse boxes who will be graciously towed by Roxanne Massaro and Michelle / Ryan Macdonald-Hutcheson. We are now asking our Eventing community to please support our riders to get there, the total cost for the trip will be R120 000.00 which includes the trucking supplied by BUFFELSBOSCH EQUESTRIAN, and the 2 horse boxes which need to be towed up. This includes the permits, levies, border fees, fuel and a multitude of other expenses that go with it. We now ask our Eventing family to help make this possible by making a pledge to help our riders get there and win this tournament. Our pledge web site page will be updated with your name, company sponsor name (if applicable) and any comments you would like to share for our Eventing community and riders competing. We are very fortunate to have already collected a substantial amount of funds graciously donated by the Zimbabwean Eventing Fraternity, but come on South Africa, let’s do more. Please send your pledges to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, pledge amount and message, you may also remain anonymous if you like.
LET’S DO THIS / together we are strong. In the interest of complete transparency a full ledger of expenditure can be requested at any time.
