With the aim of supporting Riding Clubs and Pony Clubs in their fundraising efforts, the Liverpool International Horse Show team has developed a national prize draw which will see the lucky winners securing £500 for their club funds.
Second and third prizes include tickets and a course walk with a leading rider at the 2017 Liverpool International Horse Show for 10 and a trip to The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show for 10 in 2018.
All Riding Clubs and Pony Clubs that get together to buy their tickets for the Liverpool International Horse Show as a group will be entered into the prize draw to be in with the chance of winning these great prizes. But that’s not all, this great offer will also see the clubs receiving 1 free ticket in every 10 tickets booked.
Show President Nina Barbour said: “Riding Clubs and Pony Clubs are both fantastic movements and bring together fun, education and training for so many adult and junior riders.
“This new initiative is our way of helping Riding Clubs and Pony Clubs and hopefully a £500 boost would help them to buy a couple of showjumps, dressage arenas or other useful equipment, while a visit to Liverpool International and Bolesworth International would be a real treat for the 10 lucky members chosen.”
The three days at the Echo Arena on the city’s historic waterfront are set for another equestrian extravaganza building up to a New Year’s Eve celebration like no other.
The new Inter 1 Freestyle Dressage to Music will be the feature of the Friday evening performance – December 29.

My Horse Box, the luxury equestrian subscription box brand, partner with Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys, the worldwide equine charity that protects and improves the lives of working equines and the people who depend on them, in fundraising effort.
My Horse Box was set up in December 2016 by Annabelle Brittle and Jonathan Slater, two young entrepreneurs, who had the desire to reflect their love of the equestrian industry and highlight the best products on the market.
“We’ve always wanted to work with The Brooke, and feel now is a great time for us,” Jonathan Slater, co-founder of My Horse Box explains.
Since their launch, they’ve already worked at some of the world’s largest equestrian shows, and collaborated with riders such as Anna Power, Boyd Exell, and Yazmin Pinchen. The team behind the luxury equestrian subscription box are now delighted to be working alongside Brooke.
“We’re thrilled to be chosen by Jonathan and Annabelle as charity partner for My Horse Box. There are over 100 million working horses, donkeys and mules in the world supporting the lives of 600 million people, helping them to earn a living and provide for their families. Brooke is a global animal welfare charity working with owners, communities, governments and international organisations to make lasting improvements to these animals’ lives. Subscribers to My Horse Box own their own horses and ponies, and are true animal lovers. I think there’s an interesting contrast to showcase and it’s the perfect opportunity for Brooke to raise awareness of How The Other Horse Lives.” Said Caroline Robertson, Brooke Senior Regional Fundraising Officer.
Subscriptions start from just £32.50, and a generous 50% from August box profits (on sale from 1st July - 30th July 2017) are being donated to the Brooke, so be sure to order yours at www.myhorsebox.com before they sell out!

A night to remember at Bolesworth Elite Auction as the hammer fell to a bid of £92,000 for a foal by Nick Skelton’s Olympic legend, Big Star out of Tinka’s Serenade, the former ride of Billy Twomey.
The chestnut colt, looked a million dollars in the Bolesworth International spotlights and brought huge interest from across the globe with telephone bids and VIP hospitality guests causing a flurry of excitement. It is believed the sum is the highest price paid for a show jumping-bred foal in the UK with the British-bred youngster going to Saudi Arabia.
Another to cause much interest was the bay colt, Crunch Van’t Ameldonk Z, by Comme Il Faut out of Dorina Du Domaine, a mare by Diamant De Semilly, out of Crystale D’helby, that made £62,000 and also went to the Middle East.
Leading Irish show jumper, Greg Broderick was delighted with the prices made when selling BP Golden Moments, a bay colt by Stakkato Gold out of Ballypatrick Flight, a half sister to MHS Going Global for £38,000 to the Ukraine and BP Super Kal-Ei for £23,000 to America.
“The Bolesworth Elite Auction just gets better and better and there were some great improvements this year, all credit to Nina Barbour and the team.” commented Greg.
Sourced from the best show jumping horse breeders and producers in Europe, the 18 lots presented, made £443,000 averaging more than £24,600, at an auction that was the talk of the sport horse world on the Friday evening of The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show. Without doubt this year’s Bolesworth Elite Auction proved a real high spot, with the electric atmosphere projected all around the international arena on a warm, floodlit evening.
Stable Shield launches new range of anti-bacterial stable paint preventing the spread of bacteria by up to 99.8%
Whilst many people rejoice with the milder weather, sadly this creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. With competition horses needing the very best environment to live in, keeping them healthy so they can be trained to the best of their ability, it is therefore extremely important to take every possible precaution against the spread of bugs and bacteria.
Stable Shield tackles prevention rather than cure, thus removing the emphasis on drugs and antibiotics, instead focusing on reducing the initial spread of bacteria within the equine world.
The newly developed Stable Shield Antibacterial Paint, a water-based non-toxic paint that can be applied to stables to create a fully disinfected yard, prevents the growth of bacteria by up to 99.8% on all applied surfaces. This in turn creates a clean environment which is crucial to help horses with their respiratory system and overall wellbeing.
