Seeking Class Sponsors for the Riverwood Spring Fling Horse Show

Riverwood is seeking class sponsorships to offset show costs and benefit our programs. Individuals and businesses can sponsor one or more classes for just $25 each. It is also a wonderful way to honor a special student, volunteer, instructor, horse or other loved one. You can sponsor classes online via the horse show page on our website or you can complete and submit a class sponsorship form to Riverwood. Please submit your sponsorship by May 5 so we can recognize you in the printed program. Thank you for your support and help to reach our goal to raise $2,600 through class sponsorships this year!
