Dodson & Horrell Launch Bursary to Support British Equestrian Industry

Europe’s leading equine feed manufacturer Dodson & Horrell is pleased to announce the launch of the Dodson & Horrell British Equestrian Bursary that aims to enhance and support the equestrian industry.

Are you a dedicated rider who would benefit from funding towards extra training? Do you know a deserving charity that is in need of specialist equipment? Are you or is someone you know embarking on an equestrian course and would like a helping hand? Would you like to recognise your equine physiotherapist or farrier who has gone beyond the norm for your horse? Then make sure you nominate for the bursary.

Dodson & Horrell is offering a bursary of £2,000 to each of the winners of the four categories to contribute towards funding such as equipment, training, education and travel. Entrants can either nominate a deserving person or organisation who they think will benefit from the prize, or they can put forward their own application.

The four categories are:

  • Equine Health (veterinarian, physiotherapist, equine dentist, farrier)
  • Inspirational Rider
  • Equine Charity
  • Equine Supporter (groom, parents, friend, trainer)

The winners will not only receive financial help but will also have access to expert nutritional advice from Dodson & Horrell and a VIP day out at the Dodson & Horrell Chatsworth International Horse Trials in Derbyshire on Saturday 14th May 2016 where they will be awarded their prize.

Nominations will be shortlisted by industry experts including the world renowned cross country Course Designer Ian Stark OBE and equestrian enthusiast and Marketing Director of Dodson & Horrell, Sam Horrell.

The winner from the final shortlisted entries will be nominated by public vote through the Dodson & Horrell website and the four winners will be announced on Wednesday 27th April.

Dodson & Horrell Marketing Director Sam Horrell commented “We are excited to announce the launch of our bursary and believe it is a valuable opportunity for the equine industry. We look forward to receiving the nominations and selecting the final three in each category and it will be fascinating to view the nominations as they come through.”

Nominations open on Friday 29th January 2016 and close Sunday 6 March 2016 midnight GMT. To find out more about the bursary and how to apply please visit the website
