Weʼre raising £25,000 to Fund a Horse to enable Emma to re-ignite her successful Para Dressage Career - and to get her to the Paralympic Games in Paris in 2024 !!
- Nottingham, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Having had a successful career representing Great Britain in Para Dressage and becoming World Champion, European Champion and European Team Champion, I am now in the unfortunate position where I need to start again.
I retired my Championship Horse in 2013 and since then, with the loss of an exciting young horse I haven't been able to find a suitable horse for me to compete at this level. A consequence of this it has meant that currently I no longer receive any funding at all which as meant that currently I am not able to compete.
I desperately would love to be able to have a horse once again that I could form a partnership with, train and compete and be in a position where I can once again contest a championship team place.
I cannot describe the immense pride that I felt when representing my country.... "to have the Union Jack raised for me and the National Anthem played for me was a very proud moment".
I am looking to find owners or donars to become part of my team and to help me to fund a Horse and help me to secure my future as an elite rider.
I am looking to raise £25,000 to cover the purchase of the Horse as well as initial costs once I have purchased the Horse.
Please Share as much as possible - This is an exciting opportunity for you to be part of my fantastic team !!
**If the total isn't reached, all donations will be refunded immediately**
