After launching our sponsorship competition back at the start of January 2019, we never dreamed that we would receive quite the response that we did. Receiving over 350 entries was overwhelming enough, but this obviously meant that our job was going to be very difficult.
After spending hours sifting through entries ensuring that we read through each and every one, we finally produced our short list. Or what we thought was going to be a shortlist. To put it simply- we just couldn't choose! Throughout the duration of the sponsorship contest running, so many of you worked tremendously hard to get the business name out there and as a result the business grew massively on its social platforms. We couldn't leave this unnoticed, so thus decided to create a Brand Ambassador opportunity to run alongside the sponsored riders!
Though we couldn't offer the full sponsored rider package to everyone, we did end up taking on two sponsors for each discipline which we obviously wasn't expecting to do! But we felt that the hard work of the BA's didn't deserve to go unnoticed and we wanted to continue to support them so offered a branded saddlecloth and a personal discount code which can be redeemed against all treatments.
We now have a fantastic team who we are so excited to work with over the coming year! You can check out a little bit about them all on our sponsored riders page, and they are soon to have a blog on here also.
Although we are disappointed that we couldn't support everyone, we hope that those who didn't get it this time will try again in the future as you never know when we may have a new opportunity arise!
Rookery Equine are pleased to be supporting those from across disciplines in the equine community, and hope that we can show others the true benefits that therapy can have on their equine friends. In the mean time if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us as a member of our friendly team will be more than happy to help! - Rookery Equine Team
