Join the Journey

Tamie’s thoughts on the road ahead…

Tamie and Heather at Rebecca“It’s about the journey, not just the destination! The most important part of competing and striving for excellence is having a dream worth fighting for. I can only imagine what it would be like to win an Olympic medal or stand on a podium representing my country, but finding out is what lights a fire within me to be the best competitor, coach, and future teammate possible. It would not only be an honor, it would be a dream come true. Over the years there has been heartbreak, tears, sweat, laughs, excitement, and many more emotions, triumphs, and character building events than I ever knew possible associated with achieving this dream. But, most importantly, there have been lifelong lessons and friendships gained. They say it’s not the end result that is most important, but rather…it’s the journey to getting there. The journey is made special by those who are on that road with you. If you haven’t been a part of a great team, you don’t know what you’re missing. It takes a village to achieve something this great. Without every sponsor, owner, supporter, fan and friend the journey ends…the dream is no longer.

Tamie Smith and Dempsey-7There are several ways to help support an Olympic horse and rider and join the journey. From very small contributions to solely supporting and owning a horse, no amount is too small. It is easier than you think…the joy and pride of watching someone compete and achieve a dream because of your contribution is unexplainable but easily attainable.”


As you know there are tax benefits for choosing to help a horse and rider to achieve their goals. You can visit SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EQUESTRIAN SPORTS, a non-profit organization designed to help Olympic candidates raise TAX DEDUCTIBLE contributions online at to learn more, or make a 100% tax deductible contribution today for either Tamie Smith or Heather Morris by clicking the corresponding PayPal button below.
