Patrons & Sponsors

Big, very different, high publicity, environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, controversial, history-making, community benefit, long duration, public involvement, excited national & international interest.

This is Sponsorship Heaven !

It is “once-in-a-lifetime” that a major national project comes along such as the Horse Highway & Trails project.

The Longest Ride inc. will really support those who support us.

There are two main divisions of support – Patrons & Sponsors.

Patrons are defined as major contributors to the $90m funding.

Sponsors are those funding vehicles, equipment & start-up budgets.

Patrons (happy with publicity) & Sponsors will be widely advertised:

  • Throughout the many years duration of the building of the Horse Highway & Trails network,
  • in the international Trails Directory to be published in parts, prior to the completion of each Stage of the project,
  • on campsites around the trails network,
  • on the vehicles trekking through the Shires during the design & construct process,
  • on this Website – together with “Links” to their own Website,
  • on official Longest Ride correspondence,
  • on our Quarterly Progress Report to Members,
  • where ever possible through the Media.

This grand project represents great, long term income value to Patrons & Sponsors.

Come & join us.

Be part of history.

Enjoy the benefits.
