Countrywide is inviting horse enthusiasts to a series of special equestrian evenings with Oliver Townend, London 2012 eventing team hopeful. The events are taking place in selected Countrywide stores between Tuesday 25th October and Thursday 27th October. The events will run from 6.30pm until 8.30pm and will provide visitors with a unique opportunity to listen to the knowledge and experiences of this top rider and ask some in depth questions.

The line up is as follows:

Ledbury Countrywide store – Tuesday 25th October

Bridgend Countrywide store – Wednesday 26th October

Melksham Countrywide store – Thursday 27th October

The events are being held to celebrate the rural retailer’s new sponsorship agreement with Oliver and will begin with refreshments and autograph signing, plus a welcome and introduction from Countrywide. Oliver will then give a talk on his experiences as one of the top international three day event riders, followed by a question and answer session with Oliver, his groom and nutritionist that will provide a unique insight into what it takes to be at the top of your game for horse and rider.

"Our in store countrywide equine specialists will also be available to help advise customers on a wide range of horse related topics," comments Countrywide’s Equine Buyer Sara Balckshaw "The store will have 10%* off all its equestrian accessories, feed and bedding, so before going home there will be an opportunity to do some shopping around the store with the Oliver Townend clothing range also available to purchase, exclusively to the event."

Alongside the evening a raffle for Countrywide’s charity of the year, Riding for the Disabled Association will be held, raising awareness and funds for their tremendous work.

"We are very pleased to announce our sponsorship agreement with Oliver and look forward to announcing further events and activities in conjunction with him during the next 2 years," concludes Sara Blackshaw "The next event will be an Oliver Townend jumping clinic followed by an evening demonstration held at Hartpury College on the 17th February 2012, ran by Countrywide."
