Amidst the searing heat and scorching temperatures this summer, at a time when crop fires, wild fires and field fires are rife, the Bed-Down team of riders have created their own fires that we can shout about!
Amateur Show Jumper, Leg Up For Talent star and WPC Charlotte Lee has been personally invited to compete at the Longines Global Championship Tour due to take place in Chelsea this weekend on her 14YO Mare Zarina. The pairing currently top the Silver league have been invited to represent Forces Equine and Dorset Police in the CSI 2* class at 1m 30cm. This pairing have had an amazing season this year, finishing in the top ten almost every time out. A superb achievement.
In other exciting news, top eventer and Bed-Down sponsored rider Simon Grieve has had both of his advanced level horses accepted for the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. Simon will be taking Drumbilla Metro (Splash) and Douglas, both who will be tackling this tough 4* Eventing track at the beginning of September. Burghley International Horse Trials is one of only two 4* tracks in the UK and is his favourite event of the British Eventing calendar.
Last but by no means least, Amy Tickle, also a Leg Up For Talent Star and Bed-Down sponsored rider, has qualified for the British Dressage regional finals for the first time at Medium Level on her horse Max II. Now 18, Max has taken Amy from Novice level through to Advanced Medium, but this is the first time that the pair have qualified for the Regionals since 2016, and the first ever time to qualify at this level. Amy and Max are now in practise mode before they take back to the ring on 8thAugust at Bury Farm in Buckinghamshire. Success at Regional level will lead to qualifications at Medium for the National Championships.
The one thing that all three riders have in common is Bed-Down Bedding. Bed-Down uses state of the art multiple dust extraction technology, “Easy Breathe”™. Easy Breathe actively minimises dust levels within each bale enhancing respiratory efforts and in turn maximises performance. Horses competing at the top of their game must be healthy and have airways clear from dust and ammonia. Something Bed-Down pride themselves on bale after bale. So go on – give it a try J
