A Heartfelt Thank You and Exciting Ride into 2024: Ride Every Stride's Year-End Reflection
Introduction: A Year in Review
As we bid farewell to 2023, Ride Every Stride Inc. pauses to reflect on the incredible journey we've shared with the vibrant equestrian communities in Canada, and across the United States. This year has been nothing short of remarkable, filled with memorable events, inspiring partnerships, and the unwavering support of our beloved community.
Gratitude Galore: Thank You, Equestrian Enthusiasts!
We can't thank each member of the equestrian community enough! Your passion, dedication, and infectious enthusiasm have truly been the driving force behind Ride Every Stride's mission to uplift equestrian branding, apparel, and promotion. We're beyond grateful for your unwavering support, which has been the key to our success in 2023. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being the absolute cornerstone of our journey.
Within the equestrian community, 2023 unfolded with a symphony of achievements, enhanced by Ride Every Stride's commitment to supporting these events in multifaceted ways. Our sponsorships went beyond just providing financial support; they included offering sponsored products that enhanced the overall experience for both participants and spectators.
At Angelstone Events held at both Caledon Equestrian Park and Angelstone Tournaments, Ride Every Stride's support extended beyond monetary contributions. We were proud to host the highly coveted Tack Room Awards throughout the season, fostering an atmosphere of celebration and appreciation for every athlete’s incredible dedication. Additionally, our team actively participated in a variety of engaging events hosted by Angelstone adding to the whole experience for everyone involved. This showcased our unwavering commitment to the vibrant equestrian community.
The Ottawa Equestrian Tournaments and the Traverse City Horse Shows in Michigan were some other events we partnered with. Embracing the FEI jogs and hosting Grooms Breakfasts has already become a cherished tradition for us. It's our ongoing commitment to supporting both the often unsung heroes and caretakers behind the scenes, alongside the equestrian athletes. We aim to nurture a sense of appreciation and camaraderie within the community, fostering a bond that goes beyond the horse show rings and arenas.
We were thrilled to be part of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair as both a vendor and a sponsor of the Horse Show again this year. Setting up our vendor space at such a prestigious event was an absolute joy. Being present allowed us to directly engage with the equestrian community, sharing our passion for the sport and our dedication to enhancing the experience for both participants and spectators. Interacting with attendees, sharing stories, and showcasing our products added an extra layer of excitement to our presence at the fair. Our sponsorship went beyond traditional support; it involved supplying complimentary coffee to all exhibitors who visited the stable office, contributing to the prestigious FEI jog, and hosting an exciting Tack Room competition themed this year as 'Christmas in the City'. Being able to enhance the experience for exhibitors through the small gesture of providing free coffee while also actively participating in significant events like the FEI jog and hosting themed competitions was truly fulfilling. It allowed us to connect directly with the community and contribute to the vibrant atmosphere of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.
Participating in smaller yet equally significant events such as the Louden Benefit and Restless Pines Horse Shows, is just as important to us and crucial to our community commitment. Alongside our major partnerships, we proudly extend support to these events underscores our belief in fostering inclusivity and encouragement across all levels of the equestrian community.
