Amateurs who own horses and compete in Dressage, Show Jumping and/or Eventing are invited to participate in a research study involving a short, 10 minute online survey. This study is being conducted by Michael Willham from Otterbein University to discover behavioral patterns with new market media trends in the horse industry, specifically the advertising considerations of buying and selling sporthorses.
Michael is not just a researcher, he is also a Preliminary/1* level Eventer and USDF Bronze Medalist. Michael also competes with the University of Otterbein's Eventing Team. He is combining his passion for horses with his marketing studies in order to create the first known study on Sporthorse marketing.
To partake in this study, follow the link to complete a ten minute online survey. Enter the drawing at the end of the survey for a chance to win one of four $25 SmartPak gift cards! Your answers in this study as well as your identity will remain confidential. Your participation is voluntary and you are free to withdraw at any time.
Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.
Lisa Pragg is a busy woman, but between her normal day job and competing her own 19-year-old Thoroughbred Impeccable she still prioritizes time to volunteer - both at horse trials and as a volunteer firefighter. Pragg understands the importance that volunteers play in the eventing community and makes sure to give whatever time she can back as a fair gesture.
