Equestrian Relief: British top riders from across disciplines unite to support the National Health Service

Thursday, 09 April 2020
Sport

Leading British riders from across disciplines, as well as horse racing jockeys, have shown their support for a major fundraising initiative launched by the team behind Bolesworth and Liverpool International Horse Shows. ‘Equestrian Relief’ is an urgent fundraising campaign, with donations going directly to support the work being carried out by the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK.

Leading British names are all showing their support, including Olympic gold medallist Scott Brash – who will be participating on one of the two showjumping teams, that will be challenging Team Racing, Team Eventing and Team Dressage. 

Each day two members of each team will take part in a challenge. The five challenges – On the Gallops, Plankety Plank, Horse Drawn, Showstopper and Dark Horse – will test the riders’ skills physically, creatively and artistically. You can join in on the fun at 7pm each evening until Monday 13 April as daily highlights will be broadcasted across all the Liverpool International Horse Show’s channels.

“Our priority is to unite the horse world to support our health workers and our goal is to raise a sum of money that will make a real difference. All donations will go directly to NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Crisis Fund - supporting NHS staff and volunteers on the frontline as they work under pressure and in the most challenging of circumstances,” said Nina Barbour, Bolesworth Managing Director. “We’ve already got some fabulous sponsors on-board - including long standing Bolesworth supporters Equerry, Equitop and Horse Scout - who have all made generous contributions to get us started.”

Scott Brash said: “All over the country we are coming together to support the phenomenal NHS staff during these very challenging times. As a strong equestrian community we must stay united in the battle against Covid19 and we are hopeful that Equestrian Relief can make a huge impact in raising funds directly to support those who are putting their own lives at risk to help others. Let the challenges commence and please make sure you support us and give what you can to this incredible cause.”
