Sponsored Team

We are fortunate enough to be able to provide sponsorship to a small team of Junior Riders each year. They are all incredible young equestrians who love their horses, their sport and support each other along the way. Read below to find out more about each Rider. You can also follow their riding journeys on our socials.
