Top prizes are on offer from the BEF’s new online auction which has been launched to help raise funds to send the British team to the World Equestrian Games in 2010.

The auction site has been launched with the support of the John Lewis Partnership who joined forces with the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) as part of the British Olympic Association FTSE 100 partnership scheme.

Among the top lots is a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend five days at Brookhouse Stud in Erbach, Germany with British team medallist Emma Hindle.

This lot is for two people, includes accommodation at the stud, flights and transfers. The winner and their guest will be invited to gain an insight into the stud from their foals to grand prix horses, observe training sessions and learn about the breeding programme.
Also on offer is the chance to train with Laura Bechtolsheimer, who is offering the opportunity to give the lucky winner a lesson on their own horse at her yard in Gloucestershire.

Paralympic ace Lee Pearson is also offering a lesson and is looking for a keen winner to put through their paces on their own horse at his Staffordshire base.

For eventing fans there is an opportunity to bid on a package to enjoy the complete Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials (30 April - 3 May) experience in style. Donated by the Horse Trials Support Group (HTSG), it includes a seasonal (four-day) car pass and seasonal entrance passes for two people, together with two guest badges to the HTSG Marquee for the Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday (inclusive of lunch).
