Show Voucher Support
your Riding Club organising a show and looking for support?
is on hand from BETA, The British Equestrian Trade Association through
its Retailer Support Scheme.
scheme is aimed at providing assistance for Retail Members to generate
more business whilst also encouraging the sport to work with their
vouchers are provided for sponsorship of individual classes for
up to a total value of £25 per class and can be redeemed in
any BETA Retail Member shop.
total value of the prize for the class can be divided into smaller
denominations but it is up to the retailer awarding the vouchers
to decide on the break down of the value.
Chief Executive and Secretary Claire Williams said: "We have
vouchers available which are ideal for extra prizes at shows and
events. Retailers are limited though on the number of vouchers they
can apply for so organisers are advised to talk to their local retailers
early in the season.
organising a show and looking for sponsorship should ask at their
local retailers to see if they are a member of BETA. If they are
then it is worth approaching them to discuss the benefits of sponsorship
for both of you and the shop can then apply for show vouchers to
assist in supporting the event."
addition to the vouchers, the recipients receive a certificate with
the shop's name and address on it as the sponsoring company.
order to take advantage of the voucher scheme, you must go through
your local retailer who will contact BETA requesting the vouchers.
It is also advisable to agree the class you want sponsoring first.
