Corporate Sponsorship

Corporate sponsorships are essential in the success of the Riders Up! program. Through your sponsorship, we are able to cover our operating expenses, while also expanding our reach to help more kids and more retired racehorses. We have several sponsorship options available for businesses of all sizes.

Our program is multi-faceted helping:

  • Underprivileged and at-risk youth from low income families. Many of our families are single parent households.
  • Special needs children, particular those on the autism spectrum. 
  • The children of military and first responder families.
  • Retired racehorses, some which are on their third careers after racing and showing.
