Are you looking for a competitive amateur rider to represent your company?
I am Ruby Butchers, the creator and editor of EquiPepper. I have 16+ years of horse riding experience in various disciplines, but mostly in dressage and show jumping. Since purchasing my first horse (Highland Rain) in August 2014, I have begun retraining him from an ex racehorse to a competitive riding horse. I am now at a point where I am ready to dive into the world of equine competition.
In our first year together, we went to our first dressage, show jumping and showing competitions and placed in all three of these disciplines. (See all our results here) These initial results proved that we had potential in any sphere. We have since gone on to win dressage and showing classes as well as jumping at least one clear every outing.
Why am I looking for sponsorship?
Like many other amateur competitive riders in the equine world, I struggle to balance my work/riding/social life and rarely have the extra resources available to be able to compete and achieve as much as I would like to. I am therefore hoping to find a sponsorship which would enable me to do more of what I love.
What can I do for a potential Sponsor?
I am not looking for free handouts or an easy ride. I believe that I could do a lot for a potential sponsor. Whether it would be representing their brand at a competition, writing about them on my popular blog EquiPepper or using my growing presence on social media. I understand that you have to work hard to achieve your goals and I would work hard and go the extra mile for my sponsor.

Aims for the next year:
~ score 67% in a BD Prelim test
~ ride our first Novice BD test
~ be competing at least once a month
~ compete at 80+cm show jumping
~ try our first ODE/hunter trial
~ 850+ Twitter Followers
~ 300+ Facebook Likes
~ 200+ Instagram Followers
~ 2000+ Website visits a month
I am very active on many forms of social media and always make use of key resources such as the equine chat hours on Twitter. Because of the work I put into my social media, my presence is always growing and offers me the perfect way to help represent and promote a sponsor.
