No Stirrup November
November 1, 2022 @ 8:00 AM - November 23, 2022 @ 5:00 PM EDT
We at Special Olympics New York are so excited to begin our 2nd Annual #NoStirrupNovember Rideathon sponsored by TIPPERARY EQUESTRIAN! The concept is simple: you can help us fundraiser to support Special Olympics New York’s equestrian program just by practicing no-stirrups from the comfort of your home barn!
All you have to do is sign yourself up using our JustGiving landing page and set up your own personal Rideathon page. Between Nov. 1st – Nov. 22nd, try to ride without stirrups as much as you can, and try to get your rideathon SPONSORED! Reach out to as many family & friends as possible, tell them you’re participating in #NoStirrupNovember to support Special Olympics New York, and ask them to donate. Your contacts will be able to give directly to your personal fundraising page.
You don’t have to commit to doing EVERY ride without stirrups, but we’d love for you to do it as much as you’re able, and remember: it’s supposed to be rewarding! Every rider who raises $200 or more during the rideathon will receive swag from Special Olympics New York, but there is no fundraising minimum to participate!
