Support for enterprising dressage riders
Dressage friends Cher East and Jo Tootal
When Essex-based Cher East and Jo Tootal qualified for the riding clubs dressage to music championships at Aintree Equestrian Centre on 9-10 October, they quickly realised that they would need financial help to achieve their dream of competing there.
After working out that the overall cost would be around £900, the High Fen club members decided to arrange a lecture/demonstration and raffle to raise funds. They approached local companies and were amazed by the amount of support they received.
"Musto has given us matching show and casual jackets, while Fine Fettle Feeds has donated fantastic products for our horses and also lots of things to raffle. Other raffle prizes are from Rent Right horsebox hire, Chestfield, Dengie Horse Feeds, Tower Feed and Rug Right. We have also been given Lingfield racecourse tickets and supplements for the raffle and Dan Tech engineering is giving us financial support," explained Cher.
The raffle is part of the lecture/demonstration on the scales of training by Dutch dressage rider Okke Krol on 25 September at The Old School House Stables, Earls Colne, Essex. Tickets cost £15, including wine, nibbles and soft drinks, and the afternoon also includes a shiatsu demonstration from Rose Brown.
