Hiho Silver is delighted to announce that it will be sponsoring the best dressed at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials’ trot up.
This is the second four star trot up that Hiho has sponsored this season and is something that the team is really looking forward to. With lots of other elements surrounding this sponsorship, prizes for stylish Burghley visitors and more besides, it’s a really exciting event to be working with.
“We adore Burghley as an event and are always in awe of the looks the ladies and gents put together for the trot up,” said Emma Warren from Hiho Silver. “In addition to providing the best dressed lady and gent from the first trot up with a Hiho prize, our very own King of the Road will also be on the judging panel, working with carefully selected fellow judges to bestow the most stylish accolades!”
The judging will take place on the Wednesday afternoon at the first trot up. The best dressed lady will win a stunning exclusive Hiho Cherry Roller Bangle with an extra special Burghley bead, and the best dressed man will win a voucher to spend either online or on Hiho’s Burghley stand.
“Hiho Silver is a popular tradestand at Land Rover Burghley and we are delighted that they will be sponsoring the Best Dressed Rider competition at the 2017 event,” said Event Director, Elizabeth Inman
Emily found Gaio at a market which is where their inspiring story started, overcoming a number of obstacles to get to where they are today and reach this year’s SEIB Trailblazers Championships at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.
Guy (Gaio) has had a very traumatic time over the last few years. Emily bought Guy from a livestock market in Melton Mowbray and said 'he was the best chance I ever took'.
When Emily brought him home she began working from the ground up, working through a lot of issues including a chronic rearing problem and being scared of, well, practically everything!
During this time he was coming along extremely well, however to add to the complications a field accident resulted in a broken front leg and a raging infection. For sometime it was touch and go and there was no guarantee that he would ever come sound let alone jump again, but to Emily’s surprise he bounced back with a vengeance and within 6 months he was back in ridden work and coming on leaps and bounds.
But at the beginning of 2017 year we had a scare with the dreaded S word and had 4 weeks of isolation before being given the all clear. Guy has gone from strength to strength over the last 5 months and at the grand old age of 21 he has qualified for the SEIB Trailblazers Championship.
‘From a quirky little Danish warmblood that resembled a hat rack walking around a small collecting ring in an auction environment to, well still a quirky warmblood but with a job to do who is loving life and jumping out his skin.’
‘I know I am biased but he has been the best decision that I have ever made when buying a horse, he tries his heart out for me and owes me absolutely nothing it’s a honour to be here competing at the final and I’m looking forward to every fence,’ said a delighted Emily Gibson.
