I would just like to say a big thank you to Anne Clarke for her 5 programme. I never expected to have two business both making a profit by the end of it. I’ve had enough money to purchase things I only thought I was going to dream about. I look around me and feel very lucky.
Anne has a wealth of knowledge, most of which we may never have known about. The result was the most amazing business plan, her associate accountant works very well together and they have lifted a lot of the pressure from us, which was badly needed. Using Anne will be the best investment you will ever make. There is nothing much she can't help you with, and a true professional.
I cannot thank Anne enough for the help she has given me in the diversification of my riding school to a retreat for horses and humans. This is the beginning of a new chapter for me and my family and I would not have got to this point without the knowledge and guidance of Anne and the fabulous course members. I know the friendship and support will continue.
Due to the knowledge, contacts and hard work Anne secured us match funding of £30,000. This project received a huge amount of press coverage as it was the first project of its kind within equestrian sport. As a result our membership increased significantly and it brought about more awareness of our sport.
We would not have been able to secure funding without Connected Thinking, they understand what a funder is looking for, tailor this to our own needs and then put it across clearly so both parties benefit from the results. -
Are you working just too hard at delivering services within your riding school, with inadequate rewards both financially and emotionally?
Connected Thinking loves to work with equestrian organisations such as yours to help you to grow your business with long term strategies.
Land Use and Planning
Do you own land that could be more effective? Could a redundant or under used building better support your operation? Let’s kick start the process.
Financial Tax Planning
Making robust and practical plans for the years to come will ensure that your riding school, charity or club is secure for you and future generations.
When you think about your equestrian organisation, what image springs to mind? How would you like your customers to perceive you?
Is your riding school business, working for you 24/7 on the web? A simple website which appeals directly to your target market is essential.
SEO for riding centres. We’ve all heard of it but what is it, exactly and why does it matter to your equestrian business?
You know that your equestrian organisation ticks all the right boxes…but does everyone else? Don’t keep good news to yourself.
Every organisation, regardless of size, lives or dies on its reputation. What others are saying about you, what you do and how you do it, is vitally important to the growth of your business.
Riding Centre Software
Riding centre software by Stable Management is the ultimate system to help run your business. With a proven track record of over 10 years, this software will make a huge difference to streamline your yard.
There’s no getting around the fact that to maintain safety standards and to provide enjoyable, satisfactory experiences for your target market in the local community, you may require externally sourced funding.
There’s Good News. Very good news, in fact: Your bid was successful and now you can draw down the funding to make that all important difference to your equestrian organisation. Well done!
