Has there ever been a study (by a reputable association/university) with the types of demographics at horse shows, particularly in eventing.
I am an.. aspiring young rider with goals of competing at the top levels, run a training program of my own. Over the years I have developed a marketing plan so upon obtaining sponsors I know how I can give back to them.
I am very fortunate to also be an accounting major so am using the services of my college's business department to meet with counselors tomorrow, share my 'pitch,' and have them look over my marketing plan/sponsorship packages, like a paper.
I am trying to organize everything I have, but I would love to find studies if there are any of what 'sort' of people attend equestrian events. I've competed and its almost common knowledge that these sports are one of the most expensive hobbies next to car racing at the top level. Therefore, I feel like I have an advantage when talking to businesses if I can prove ok, your target market was found in 75% of all horse-owners/competitors.
This may be a shot in the dark of whether a university ever took polls at Hampton Classic/Rolex of the average income of spectators.
