2019 IS THE YEAR WE WILL REACH FOR THE STARS AGAIN!

Competing overseas is a huge undertaking for everyone involved. Due to the travel and costs involved, it cannot be accomplished very often. Check out our interview with Newshub Late, about our exciting World Champs plan.

2014 WORLD EQUESTRIAN GAMES: 9th PLACE

In 2014, the Kapiti Vaulting Club took a team to the World Equestrian Games in France where they placed 9th in the world: a huge accomplishment! New Zealand had never been represented in the World Games before. We are immensely proud of all the hard work by all involved: coaches, vaulters, managers, overseas hosts, supporters, donors, and parents backing their kids all the way. It literally takes a village to get this done.

2019 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

We are up for the challenge again, and have a team of 8 vaulters who are training hard to get to the FEI Vaulting World Championships for Juniors in the Netherlands in 2019.

Let’s do this! Read more about the team here.

FUNDRAISING TARGET

Unfortunately we can’t take our horses to Europe, so we have to spend about 6 weeks in Germany to train with a new horse and build that trust to perform our moves safely.

The long trip, together with uniform and training expenses, will cost the team $150K, for which we are madly fundraising!

 

WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO COULD HELP?

We plan to reach our fundraising goal with the help of:

  • Silver, Gold and Platinum Sponsorship (opportunities from $250)
  • A regular stream of group fundraising events, which including raffles and auction of donated items (to donate goods please complete this Google Doc donations register please)
  • Donations (eg, to our Givealittle page or making a tax-refundable donation directly to our charity’s fundraising bank account: 03-1531-0072614-001)
  • Sports and community grants

Depending on the value of donations and sponsorships, we can give sponsors excellent exposure at our events, website, newsletters, posters, social/media coverage, and we are open to conditions.

With your support, our team can reach for the stars again and ensure New Zealand’s continuing place on the world vaulting stage. Please make the girls’ dreams come true and help them to put the silver fern in the spotlight.

Thank you!
