Dear Friends of Dressage,

Dressage in the Sierra is one of the premier shows of the California Dressage Society's circuit. This annual event draws competitors from throughout the region to ride under internationally rated judges. As one of the top equestrian events in Nevada, it offers a perfect venue to showcase Reno area businesses and products to serious equestrians.

Our organization, the Sierra Nevada Chapter of the California Dressage Society, is affiliated with the United States Dressage Federation. It is a volunteer group whose members spend countless hours working to ensure the quality of this event. Each year, its success depends on the support and patronage of our community. Sponsorships from chapter members, their families and friends, and local professionals and businesses are essential to maintaining the show's tradition of excellence.

Each sponsorship, from the smallest to the largest, is greatly appreciated. Please take a moment to look at the attached list of sponsorship opportunities and select the one that best meets your needs. Your support will be recognized in event materials, mailings, and the chapter newsletter, as well as at the show. Funds raised help us to attract top-notch competitors through prizes, cash awards, trophies and first-rate facilities, including the Reno Livestock Events Center.

For additional information about sponsorships, please contact Joan Wright 775-687-0202 or Wendy Hays 775-267-5409. If you are unable to be a sponsor at this time, please consider helping us secure a donation or a prize suitable for an award. Your involvement ensures that we can continue to showcase the art of dressage in northern Nevada.

Thank you for your generosity,

Members of the Sierra Nevada Chapter, California Dressage Society
