Rhodes-Bosch Gets Creative In Badminton Fundraising Efforts

Stephanie Rhodes-Bosch is headed to the Badminton CCI**** (England), and she’s decided to sell four shares in her horse, Port Authority, to help fund the trip.

Rhodes-Bosch, 22, rode as a member of the silver-medal winning Canadian eventing team and placed ninth individually at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, as well as finishing fifth at the 2010 Rolex Kentucky CCI****.

A generous grant from Equine Canada will not cover the entire cost of her trip to England. Port Authority is not for sale; this is an ownership opportunity through a lease agreement.

Rhodes-Bosch has owned the 13-year-old Thoroughbred-Selle Francais gelding for the last eight years, and the pair has had an almost fairy tale rise through the ranks from one-star to four-star.

Rhodes-Bosch left Canada in 2007 to train with fellow Canadian Rebecca Howard at The Fork in Norwood, N.C. After a bronze medal at the 2008 North American Young Rider Championships, she moved to Ocala, Fla., to train with David O’Connor.

Partnership in Port Authority would mean premier Badminton access. As an owner of a horse at Badminton, you have the best seats to watch dressage and show jumping, tickets to the members' tent every day and an invitation to the cocktail party in Badminton House.
