Van Cotter Partners are proud to announce our Corporate Sponsorship for Team Checkers at Veterans Retreat.

Checkers is a rideable thoroughbred gelding born on 8 Oct 2009 who never made it to the racetrack. He stands a whopping 17hh and knows his size so can be a little cheeky. He suffers from mud fever on his legs so needs a dry paddock and a little extra care and monitoring.

Veterans Retreat is a farmstay run by veterans which is open to all veterans, first responders and their families / carers. They offer day visits, overnight accommodation, animal therapy and more. Their key focus is on meaningful engagement.

It is a worthy charity close to our hearts as we are owned and operated by a veteran of both ADF and NSW Police Force and we look forward to building our involvement and we’ll be visiting Checkers as soon as we can.
