Sponsorship with the Georgian Bay Zone of the THJA

WHY SPONSOR THE GBZ

The Georgian Bay Hunter Jumper Show Circuit was established in 1992. Local facility owners felt the need for recognized competition in the area. Previously, horse owners and riders had to travel as far away as Toronto and London in order to compete at OEF sanctioned competitions. This would then prohibit competing for quite a number of people as the substantial increase in time and costs would make it impossible. Every year since then, show organizers have had the task of raising funds to cover everything from prize money to year end awards, to program printing, done in the form of advertising in the show program. This year is just the same.

From its inception the Georgian Bay Trillium Zone has printed a program/book that is common to all the shows involved in the circuit. The book includes rules, schedules, locations of shows etc. and advertising. Initially the revenue from advertising was pooled from all shows and funded the prize money, as the circuit grew this became complicated as some shows contributed more than others. To solve this issue and enable us to keep a program/book that is common to the whole circuit, thus giving advertisers really good exposure to the whole circuit, we decided to give each show a maximum of the prize money offered at each show to sell in advertising. This system has worked well as it rewards the shows that take the initiative to attract sponsors without getting more than they need by capping their advertising space at the prize money offered at their show , and giving the sponsors excellent value!
