Ask @emily_moffitt : How do you find your horses? How did you find your sponsors?
Hi Shannon,

My dad and I are always looking for talented young horses or any horse that looks special. When we are consciously looking for a horse to do a certain job my trainer Ben and I will watch a lot of classes to see if anything catches our eye. Ben and my dad know a lot of people that are horse dealers as well! This helps because they know where all the best horses are. Once we find a couple options we pick the best ones and go try them! Then we decide from there. As for the sponsors...I decided it was best to not have any sponsors at the moment because in order to keep my amateur status in Florida you cannot be sponsored. But now that it's time for my Europe season I will look to be sponsored. It's easiest to get to know the people that run the brands you would want to be sponsored by and simply ask them if they would offer any sponsorship opportunities!
