Hey guys! Enemy here with some cool news. I was offered a really amazing, once in a lifetime opportunity to be a working student for Poulsen dressage; I will be training and working for a year under a world class dressage rider in Florida with my pony Alida.
I’m a backyard, no-name rider who has been stuck for financial reasons on my small town Midwestern show circuit, and while I already train and instruct a few horse/rider pairs in the area, this opportunity would be life changing, and give me the chops to be a better instructor. The knowledge and experience I gain over the next year would take me to a new level of horsemanship and allow me to start working toward my dream career.
The only setback is, it will cost me over $2,000 out of pocket to get myself and my pony to Florida. I have two temporary jobs and will be busting my butt on commissions until I leave in September, but I am not sure I will be able to raise the funds.
So this is where DeviantART comes in!! I am hosting an art raffle to seek donations and try to give back to everyone who is able to pitch in and help.
I truly believe that my fell pony and I have the work ethic, determination and talent to do great things, and any help to get us started would mean the world! Even if you can’t donate, I would really appreciate you reading on about the raffle, and helping to spread the word. Thank you so much for helping a dork and her rescue pony achieve their dreams!
