SPONSOR A SCHOOLIE

 

 

"Here's to all the school horses, the ones that taught you to ride. The ones with endless patience, and the one horse you loved. The one that was never yours, but continues to gnaw away at your heart."

We need your help!

Have a favourite Vector school horse? Did one of our horses teach you or your family member to ride? They miss seeing you as much as you miss seeing them! We need your help in this challenging time. With no lesson income and no certainty of when the closure will end we are concerned with the amount of money needed to keep the school horses going. By 'sponsoring a schoolie' you will help provide them with the basic needs over the next few months to weather the pandemic until lessons resume. Our wonderful horses have provided us with selfies & bios below. Please fill out the form below and indicate which type of donation & horse(s) you are interested in.

Special Opportunity ! Send in a video of you on course or in a lesson and head coach Jenny Lineker will send you a back a commentary. Cost - $30 donation

AIDEN

Hi! I hear you might want to sponsor me! Well, let me tell you why that’s a good idea. I’ve done lots of super cool things in my life! Did you know that I’ve been in a jousting competition before? It was neat but I think I like jumping more. I spent many years in the jumpers and hunters before getting to teach riders at Vector. Do you want to know what else I love? Treats! Apples, carrots, and mints are some of my very favourites. I also really love itching my face. I hope I don’t itch on you by accident. I need my own personal scratching post.

CHASE

Hi, my name is Chase, but once upon a time it was Liddell. I started out my career as a racehorse and I have a cool tattoo on my lip to prove it. In the winter of 2016, I moved into my forever home at Vector. I competed in the Challenge series in 2017 and had lots of fun! In 2018, I introduced my rider into the Trillium circuit. I was definitely not the fanciest horse in my division but that didn’t stop me from winning first place ribbons! Everyone thinks I’m super cute and friendly! I love to give kisses and I love everything about being a school horse. I can teach beginners how to ride or I can jump around a course! They don’t call me Good Sir for nothing! I’m a pretty cool dude so I think you should sponsor me!

FINN

Hello my name is Finn and I’m one of the newer horses to join the Vector family. I was the only horse at my old barn so I had to become friends with sheep and a cow named Georgia. I’m so happy that I got to make so many more friends at Vector! I’m best friends with Aiden, Bentley and Touchdown! My blue roan colour makes me a very handsome horse. I love getting attention and especially getting brushed! I’m a really sweet horse and if you give me a sponsorship you’ll become my favourite human!

GRAYCIE

I think I’d be a really nice horse to sponsor! I am very gentle and am super happy being petted. Sometimes I might sneak a quick nap in the crossties while I’m getting brushed. You’ll be able to tell because my lip will hang open. I have a super pretty coat. Sometimes, I forget that I’m grey and I roll in the grass until I’m more green than I am grey. I have a very comfy trot and I am a pretty sweet girl.

JAVA

Hi! Do you have any treats for me? You do? That’s amazing. Would you like to sponsor me? That would be even better! I’m a super cool guy! I have competed in lots of shows including on the A circuit! Last year I was champion overall on BOTH of my divisions in the challenge series!! What can I say, I’m really cute. One of my favourite things to do is drink water out of the hose like a straw! I also really love to give kisses- especially if there are treats involved.

JONATHAN

Hmm. Why should you sponsor me? I think that I am a very gentle and kind pony. I try my best to make everybody happy. I stand super duper still when I am being brushed and when my riders are getting on me. I always remember to use my manners. I love being brushed and petted. My show name is Mr. Right and I think that it’s fitting. I used to do lots of shows! I hope that the next time you see me you’ll stop in to say hello and maybe give me a few treats if you have some.

JENNA

Why should you sponsor me? Well, there are lots of reasons. Number one: I love carrots. Oh, another reason? I’m also very smart! I have been learning so much here at Vector! Before I came here I was trained to jump and then got a full time job just being friends with my paddock mates who were all Friesians. I loved playing with the new babies each year. When they all moved to Alberta, I joined the Vector family. I am super cuddly and I love attention. My very best friend is Stella and we have lots of fun together in the paddock. And did I mention that I love carrots?

KOBY

My big personality and adorable face aren’t the only reasons you should choose to sponsor me. I am a man of many talents. I was trained as an eventer and I came to Vector all the way from Ottawa! Another special talent I have is that I can smell my feed coming from a mile away! Do you have treats for me? I am also excellent at chewing on my friends blankets but we won’t talk about that.

MADDI

Hi I’m Maddi, also known as the Mad Hatter. I am very wise because I have been living this pony life for a long time! I’m retired now and all I do is eat, poop, eat, play, eat, sleep, repeat. Sandy and I are living our leisurely life together and I’d say we’re having lots of fun! Once upon a time I was a show pony and the school horse master! I love being a pony because I love all the attention I get from children! I am super kind and will put a smile on everyone’s face! Sponsor me and I’ll be smiling too!

MERLOT

Hi, my name is Merlot and I came to Vector this year. Although I have not been here for long, everyone loves me! I used to do the hack division on the Trillium Circuit and I plan to continue my showing career this summer! I will be doing the challenge series with two wonderful humans who take great care of me! I really want to do well in the show ring and a sponsorship would really help me achieve my goals.

PHEOBE

Oh my goodness! I would be so excited if you sponsored me! I am a very happy girl. Did you know that I am a thoroughbred? Well, the racehorse life doesn’t really suit me. I don’t understand how racehorses have so much energy! I like it better here at Vector instead. I get lots of treats and neck scratches. I sometimes nicker when people come to visit me. I love jumping and people say that I’m super cute!

RIZZO

Hmm. Why should you sponsor me? Well, let me tell you. I’m a very sweet girl. I have the softest nose in the barn and I love it when people pat me! I am a princess and I love to have my picture taken. I’ll always put my ears forward! My canter is super comfy and I am a very good listener. And in case you were wondering, my belly has room for lots more treats.

SANDY

I should get a sponsorship because I am a legend around the barn! I am a very fancy pony. I even showed at the Royal Winter Fair a long time ago with my human Stefanie! I have won many champion ribbons over the years but now I enjoy retired life. I love to hang out with my friend Maddi and eat lots of treats! I’m a little taller than Maddi but he’s the boss of the duo. That’s okay though because I’m the cuter one!

STELLA

Obviously I should get a sponsorship because I am Princess Stella. I am a perfectionist and I like everything to go as planned. That means no surprises please! I am a very fancy pony who moves very gracefully. I have an adorable jump and I always try my best! I am always a fun horse to ride because I never run out of energy! This might be from all the sugar I eat from rice crispy squares. I adore rice crispy squares! They are my absolute favourite treat and I will never turn one down.

STORMY

Slurp. Sorry, it’s hard for me to answer questions with my tongue sticking out of my mouth. I would be a great horse to sponsor! I am small but mighty. When I was young, I showed in the metre jumper division! I jumped super tall jumps and I was super fast!! Now I’m loving my life teaching everyone what I love to do! Beneath my fuzzy coat, I have a super big heart. And just so you know, I really love treats. Am I allowed to stick my tongue out again now?

The rest of the summer I am sponsored by the Betts Family 

 

 

REANO

I am Reano and Vector has been my home for 11 years. I used to live in Europe and I jumped 1.3m jumps. Then I moved to Canada and my showing career continued. I had many successful years on the Trillium Circuit and have won Championships with many different riders. Even though I have shown for many years, I am a pretty simple guy. I would love to just lay down in my stall and enjoy a banana. If you can’t give me a sponsorship you can give me a banana instead!

LILY

I’m a spotted pony with a sweet personality! I think it would be pretty cool to have a sponsor. One of my favourite things to do is roll in mud. Especially on the day before a show. I have to take lots and lots and lots of baths. My humans complain about it, but I’m the one who has to stand in the wash stall. I’ve been to lots of different shows in Canada and the USA. I am a travel expert. In case you were wondering, yes I am also a treat expert.

Thank you Davidson Family for sponsoring me for April & May!
