Event Sponsorship: Applications

Applications for the August 2022 to January 2023 period are now open, closing 9pm Sunday 29 May.

The OTTWA Event Sponsorship initiative is designed to both encourage horse and rider combinations at the beginning of their competitive careers and recognise those who are competing at the top levels. OTTWA would like to acknowledge the important role the clubs and organisations receiving this sponsorship play in achieving this. 

Event sponsorship enables OTTWA to connect and support a large variety and number of off the track horse owners and riders, for this reason we are focussing sponsorship efforts on event sponsorship for this period rather than individual rider sponsorship 

EVENT SPONSORSHIP TIERS AND CRITERIA
