Equestrian Show Jumping

Personal message

Hi, My name is Cheyenne Nel, I'm a 19 year old aspiring to compete in equestrian show jumping in Cape Town, South Africa. 


Riding is in my blood and has been ever since 2014. My passion & aspirations for show jumping have always been incomprehendable. I was lucky enough to have my parents support me throughout high school however, we have decided to prioritise my studies for the coming years. 

I made the decision to take a gap year (2021) to give myself the opportunity to work, earn money & save as much as I could to put towards my dreams. 
Through this whole process, the one thing that stood out was how much show jumping actually meant to me. I have pushed myself to the limit countless times and grown exponentially over the past year. 


Short Term: The 'BackABuddy' donations will be used to fund my equestrian journey in 2022. I have planned to start leasing a horse in February of 2022 and compete in graded show jumping.


As I will be studying in 2022, My work & income will be reduced. Luckily, 'BackABuddy' has given me the opportunity to reach out and ask for help. 

Option 1: Cash Donation - Of any amount that you are able to give.

Option 2: Branded Sponsorship - Help me & advertise your bussiness at the same time. The logo/name of your company will be directly embroided onto specific parts of my gear. The following donations are accepted:

1) You are able to pay R5 000 once off.

2) You are able to pay monthly installments that can be negotiated

Option 3: Equipment Donation - I am in need of the following equipment

1) show tops (XS-S)

2) jodhpurs (size 26-30)

3) riding boots (UK 5) 

(Second Hand Items Are Accepted)

Hi all :) I’ve started this fundraiser in order to generate money to fund my competitive horse riding expedition. Welgelegen, Cape Town.

48K is needed to ensure that most costs (tack, travel, transport & practice) are covered for the 12-month period.
