How to Sponsor

Whether you’re looking to make a one-time contribution or become a long-time supporter, there’s a place for you here at Stephen Bradley Eventing.

We’ve outlined a few options below:

Horse Ownership

Stephen BradleyHave you ever wanted to experience the thrill of owning an elite athlete? Here’s your chance! Many of Stephen’s competition horses are available for syndication. While only 49% of each current horse is available for purchase, there’s no limit to the number of horses you can own. Or, if you’re interested in owning your own horse, Stephen will help you find him. Owners have one-time costs (buy-in fee or purchase price), along with annual maintenance fees, which are determined given the competition level of each horse. Owners are given behind-the-scenes access at major international events, along with personal updates from Stephen and his team throughout the year.

Horse Sponsorship

Awards GallopNot ready for ownership? Consider sponsoring one of Stephen’s horses for a day, week or month. The costs involved with campaigning an upper-level event horse are close to $40,000 per year. These costs are broken down into feed, shoes, vet care, competition entry fees, and so much more! Consider sponsoring the feed for one of Stephen’s horses for $50 per month, or their shoes for $250 every other month. You can sponsor a local horse trials entry for $300, or a major three-day event entry for $800. The horses love their massages, so sponsor a session for $100. Should you choose to sponsor a competition, be sure to come and tag along with Stephen’s team for the day. And if you can’t be there, we’ll be sure to send you a full report, complete with photos and video.
