The Sponsor-A-Westernaire-Rider Program
It happens on occasion: a young rider is unable to come up with the funds necessary to continue in Westernaires. Westernaires has always worked keep their fees at the lowest possible levels for riders, however, in trying times they can add up.

The goal of the Sponsor-A-Rider program is to provide short-term financial relief (for Westernaire-related expenses) for families, and to ensure that riders are able to participate in their classes during tough financial times.
Because WAA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we do require information pertaining to how the funds will be used. We also require that a request form be completed. Nomination of a sponsorship can be initiated by someone who is aware of a family in need. All information regarding the program is confidential.
To date, the Alumni Association has been able to help dozens of riders with their Westernaire expenses. If you would like to help us to keep Westernaire riders in the saddle whose families are going through financial crisis, please consider donating to our Sponsor-A-Rider fund.
