Have you ever wondered who supports high level athletes on their journey?  

The answer is simple‚Ķsomeone just like you! That's right a successful athlete is surrounded by an important team of supporters. We call our Team - Team Paraquest.  Individuals, sponsors, and community groups, joined with Team ParaQuest to support Sydney achieve her goal to be a member of the US Para-Dressage Team for the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games. Now, Sydney and Wentworth are ready to put their plans to compete in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio into action.  They could use you on their team to help their plans become reality.  

So what does an equestrian athlete need to be successful at the elite level?  How much can it possibly cost?  

Training, travel, competitions, clinics, vet care, farrier work, these are just the beginning of a long list of necessary expenses that go into building an Equestrian Paralympian.  2012 Track and Field Olympian Cyrus Hostetler writes on his personal website "Sometimes the competition that I face is not the competition on the track but rather the competition of finances,‚Ķ" These financial battles are the Catch 22 of every high performance athlete.  Often rather then the reality of success,  athletes face the tougher reality that financial concerns limit training time and competitive opportunities. But there is a way to change this picture and the answer is Teamwork! Together we can change this picture and make plans a reality.
