It has been another fabulous week here at Chestnut. Coyaba and Hannah Bishop romped home to finish 3rd in the Charity Race at Newbury on Saturday. This year the race was supporting the Greatwood Charity which cares for neglected, ill treated and retired racehorses. They also have a unique educational programme that supports children with special education needs. Hannah and Coyaba have been in training with Richard Phillips a well renowned National Hunt Trainer and have risen just shy of £7,000!! However the total raised for Greatwood from the charity race was over a whopping £135,000!! Massive Well Done to everyone involved and a huge thank you to all that made it happen. The Chestnut Team have been so proud to have been part of this epic journey again this year and look forward to being a part of it again in the future.
This weekend saw the start of the BE season and the Championship Final of the Chestnut Horse Feeds Arena Eventing Series. Congratulations to all who participated, there were some MEGA prizes up for grabs including UVEX sunglasses, Chestnut Horse Feeds saddle cloths, personalised diet plans and free feed samples! The weather held off and a fab day was had by all.
With all the BD Regional Finals out the way and the Wild Cards awarded focus now moves to the Winter Championships at Hartpury Arena on the 6-10th April we wish everyone the best of luck at this prestigious event.
