Top riders Charlotte Dujardin, Carl Hester and Scott Brash are just some of the stars supporting a virtual three-day event that’s taking place this week to help raise money to support riding schools and the NHS. Organised by LeMieux and Horse Health, the aim is to provide a little bit of eventing excitement for fans of the sport during the week that Badminton Horse Trials was due to take place.
The event will run as a draw and everyone who signs up will be allocated an event horse and rider, with a start list of 120 combinations available. Then, from Thursday to Sunday, daily draws will take place to determine how many points are allocated to each horse and rider for each phase – dressage, cross-country and showjumping. These draws will be done by famous riders, including Charlotte, Carl and Scott!
On Sunday, the points will be totalled up and the overall winner revealed. Then, everyone who drew the winning horse will be entered into a superdraw and will be in with a chance of winning £5,000!
The online draw’s free to enter, but donations are being encouraged to help the NHS and riding schools. To find out more, visit www.horsehealth.co.uk/mega-mayeventing/
