Thorowgood Saddle Competition Winners

In 2018 Ride Out UK Month was kindly sponsored by Thorowgood and throughout the month, the BHS, its committees, BHS Affiliated Equestrian Access Groups and Approved Centres hosted events all in aid of the  BHS Paths for Communities Fund to help us to do more in your local area.

To celebrate our Platinum Anniversary, we gave away FIVE Thorowgood saddles to the winners of our competitions.

Our Competition Winners

1. Highest individual fundraiser - 18 years and over Vicky Hodgkiss 
2. Highest individual fundraiser - under 18 years Zoe Beresford 
3. Highest group fundraiser Danielle Edge
4. Most kilometres during Ride Out UK Month Megan Seedhouse
 5. Photography challenge - #RIDEOUTUK:  Abby Wade

The winner of each competition has been awarded a Thorowgood saddle of their choice and fitted by a qualified Society Master Saddler. 

Abby Wade was our photo competition winner and as she does a lot of show jumping and eventing the T8 Black Jump Saddle was perfect for her: "The forward cut means I can put my stirrups higher to help achieve a better position and be more stable. There was such an extensive range of saddles to choose from, and the scientific research that goes behind the saddles makes me know I’m going to get the best for me and my horse, Stella. I’m really looking forward to improving our performance."

Megan Seedhouse, another winner said "we first purchased a Thorowgood T4 saddle in November 2015 and I was just looking into getting a new one when this competition came about! Winning this saddle has meant I haven't had to find the funds to buy a new saddle and means we can spend it elsewhere! This T8 saddle is extremely comfy and hopefully will be used for many miles just like my old one!"
