But the sport of Eventing is expensive; the
acquisition and upkeep of a top level horse is not
something that most riders can afford on their own. This
is why Cindy is putting together an ownership syndicate,
to help support her partnership with MHS Cooley Vegas. She couldn’t do it without the help of
interested supporters and owners like you!
In a horse ownership syndicate, a group of
people comes together to purchase a promising horse for a
talented rider. The syndicate covers the cost of buying
the horse and helps with the annual costs needed to
maintain and compete the horse. With an affordable buy-in
and yearly maintenance fee, this is a fabulous opportunity
to enjoy the thrill of owning a top class event horse at a
fraction of the cost of individual horse ownership, and to
support Cindy in her ascension to the top of the sport. Learn

Windchase Syndicate will allow up to 10 individuals the
benefits of being a part of our team.
As horse lovers and Eventing fans, the
syndicate members will have the experience
of being significant players in the sport of Eventing.
