You already manage a ride.
Let The Sweaty Equestrian manage your web page.
What's in it for you?
- Save yourself hours of frustration remembering how to update your old site. You know, the one with all the ugly ads that won't go away unless you pay? Yeah. That one.
- Stop answering the same questions over & over because some folks missed your social media posts.
- Rise to the top in Google search results. Did you know that new or low-traffic sites often don't show up at all? Piggybacking on a larger site gives everyone more visibility.
- Best of all, support a junior or new rider by giving them a discounted ride fee!
What do you have to do?
- Email me your ride information and a few photos. See below for a list of information you should include.
- Give 50% off your ride entry fee to either a junior or a first-time rider. You can manage this however you like. For example, draw a name out of a hat full of juniors and new riders or give the discount to the first junior or first-time rider to register. If you don't happen to have any paying juniors or newbies, use your best judgement -- maybe give the discount to a rider who had a rough day, or who went above and beyond to help someone else. This is all about paying it forward!
- Plan to manage your own registration and payment options. If you offer online registration/payment options, I'm happy to include links to them on your page.
- Email me if you need updates made to your page. I'm always happy to change the details on your page as needed.
Why am I doing this?
- I'm concerned about the future of our sport. This is a small way I can help break down barriers for young and new riders.
- As an experienced and middle-aged rider, I'm more likely to attend rides with updated, informative websites. I suspect that young and new riders are even more more reliant on websites as they consider participating.
- Endurance riding has brought much joy and learning to my life, and I want to pay it forward.
- Note: I'll do as many ride pages as my schedule allows. First come, first served. I'll update this page if I need to put new page building on hold for a while in order to keep myself and my horses in shape!
What information do I need to build your page?
- Ride name
- Ride dates
- Events/distances offered
- Entry fees
- Driving directions to ride camp
- Registration and payment instructions
- Trail description
- Ride manager contact information
- Photos (optional). Please limit this to 3 photos per ride, and be sure you have permission to use them. Consider showing off your beautiful trails, smiling riders and volunteers, and happy horses!
- Any other details that riders ought to know. Think about dinner, registration deadlines, camping fees, weed-free hay requirements, ride camp address for health certificates, dog rules, etc.
