We Want to Help Your Equine Non-Profit Group
For over 20 years, we’ve been helping non-profit organizations raise funds for their cause at our Walkabout Tours. At each tour stop, Clinton teams up with our tour feature sponsor Ritchie Industries to put on the Ritchie Charity Ball Toss. A local organization with equine connections is selected to run the ball toss that has become a crowd favorite. Throughout the two-day event, spectators purchase tennis balls from the non-profit organization for $5. On Sunday, they toss the balls into the arena, trying to be the closest to a marker. Those closest to the marker receive Clinton’s instructional videos and Downunder Horsemanship training tools. All money raised goes straight to the non-profit organization to help them with their mission.
Organizations chosen to head up the Ritchie Charity Ball Toss in the past have included equine rescues, therapeutic riding centers for children, adults and military personnel, and 4-H groups. Thanks to tour spectators’ generosity and Ritchie’s willingness to support the event, the ball toss has earned hundreds of thousands of dollars for non-profit organizations around the country.
In 2023, the Walkabout Tour is coming to Lexington, Virginia; Denver, Colorado; and Conroe, Texas. Organizations interested in running the Ritchie Charity Ball Toss can find more information and fill out an application to be considered on the Downunder Horsemanship website.
