It can be very expensive to compete at National and International level with my horse.My successes so far have been achieved mainly through self-funding, persistence, perseverance and the support of family and friends.
Any help with finances, clothing or equipment would be greatly appreciated. I hope to continue to compete at national and international competitions in 2012 and I would like to find a main sponsor that could support me financially in my quest to ride at the Paralympics ,in the not too distant future!
Sponsorship of any kind would be most welcome, small Local companies would be able to show their support for a local girl with any form of help .Sponsorship plays a massive role in assisting with the enormous costs involved with the performance sport and any donations, no matter how small, are most welcome and gratefully received.
By becoming a corporate or private sponsor, you will help support me allowing me to gain access to competitive para dressage,
Whatever level of commitment you choose to make, you can be comfortable in the knowledge that you are genuinely involved in supporting me in my para dressage quest, in addition to gaining the many personal and commercial benefits that sponsorship can bring.
Logos can be placed on my horsebox which can be seen travelling the length and breadth of Britain also Logos may be placed on jackets, rugs and saddle cloths, providing additional brand exposure for your company.

The Weir Charitable Trust
I have been so fortunate as to receive major sponsorship from Mr Colin and Mrs Chris Weir, this is for the next four years, possibly longer. I am so moved and overwhelmed by their generosity and kindness.
In setting up a trust, however, Colin and Chris have recognised that while responding to individual requests is fulfilling, they will be able to do more through an organised structure. Mrs Chris Weir has identified a particular need in the current recession to support individuals, groups and charities in Scotland struggling to gain funds from mainstream grant makers.
The Trust will support individuals, groups and charities across Scotland who are struggling to gain funds from the more traditional or mainstream grant makers.
Colin and Chris have a close, personal interest in all these projects and are likely to gain particular satisfaction from sponsoring young people.
A huge 'thank you!' to Mr John Clark , Chairman and to Dougy Johnstone, Peer Support Manager, of Spinal Injuries Scotland for their generous and much appreciated funding towards my training and competitions!
