SPRING BOOSTER T-SHIRT FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN THROUGH 4/21/2014
The Spring T-Shirt Campaign is live! Click here to access the link. We are featuring t-shirts in Jade Dome and Heliconia with the TROT logo in white on the front and back. Available in Youth and Adult unisex sizes. There is even a sizing line-up on the page so you can get the right size to fit you.
The shirts are Gildan Ultra Cotton. They are made of 100 percent pre-shrunk sturdy heavyweight cotton. They are double-needle stitched for durability.
Buy one or more and share this information with your friends. The goal is to sell 50 shirts and raise $447 but the more that are sold means more money for TROT! Once we reach the 20-shirt minimum, the campaign will print.
The campaign ends Monday, 4/21/2014 at 11:59pm Eastern Daylight time.
NEW SHOW SERIES FOR THOROUGHBREDS!
Attention OTTB owners in Florida and nearby states! There is some exciting news for you.
The all-new Run for the Ribbons Horse Show Series will be an exclusive Hunter/Jumper horse show series for all tattooed, registered, and identifiable Thoroughbreds. This exciting new horse show series was established to create a meaningful competitive environment, raise the demand for Thoroughbreds, and to help owners in expanding second career options for OTTB's (Off-Track Thoroughbreds)!
There will be classes ranging from In-hand for those thoroughbreds who are no longer able to work under saddle, to 3' hunter/jumper classes. They will also have for sale/adoption display classes, for owners and adoption organizations that have thoroughbreds for sale.
The first show is scheduled for Saturday, April 12, 2014 at 8am with schooling on Friday, April 11, 2014 from 1pm until dark.
There will be Classics with cash prizes. Riders and horses can qualify for the yearly Equitation finals. There will be year-end awards for each division and High Point Trainer year-end award.
For more info, visit the event website. They also have a Facebook page and Facebook event.
