Donor Offers Special Matching Challenge To Support Footing Upgrade

The Green Mountain Horse Association has recently received a wonderful gift towards the Footing System Upgrade Project from an anonymous donor. This individual has offered a great way for any barn, collective group, organization, or individual to take advantage of one of the naming opportunities offered as part of the Footing System Upgrade Project. The project, which centers around installing new, high‐quality footing on all of GMHA’s rings, is now in full swing with fundraising well underway. The project is crucial to GMHA, which runs 65 equestrian events each season at the South Woodstock, Vermont facility each year, and is one of the leading competition sites in New England.

For anyone raising $5,000, the generous donor will match that with an additional $5,000. By doubling the donation and reaching the a total of $10,000, the initial donor will earn the opportunity to have a fence section‐sized plaque with their name on the White Ring, GMHA’s main ring and one of the most visible locations on the property. The naming opportunity belongs entirely to the group raising the initial $5,000‐ along with the knowledge that they have made a huge difference in improving GMHA’s facility. This is a one‐time offer, so the first group who contributes $5,000 and requests the matching funds will receive the naming rights. This offer must be mentioned at the time of donation.

To date, the Footing System Upgrade Project has raised $80,000 with the help of many of GMHA’s friends and supporters. The final fundraising target to complete the resurfacing of all four rings and continuing the upgrades to the cross‐country track is $255,000.
