    Sponsorship Form

    For over 70 years our non-non profit organization has been providing our community with an outdoor equine show facility to youth, families, 4-H members, high school equestrian teams and disabled individuals, through We Can Ride 4-H Club. 
    Your generous donations enable practical skills of teamwork, competition, discipline and leadership to be learned and gained for a lifetime. Your support provides show opportunities for riders, allowing them to have an opportunity to display their hard work and to be rewarded through wholesome competition.
    It also ensures equestrians in our community have superior judges and well maintained grounds. It also allows a volunteer board and committee members to supply the manpower needed to maintain the property and execute each of the twelve shows, each month from April to September
    Would you please consider a donation to Buchanan Westerners to help ensure we continue to be able to provide these outstanding opportunities?
