The UK’s leading equine bedding manufacturer, BEDMAX, have announced that for the second year running, they are offering one talented young rider an unmissable opportunity to win the BEDMAX Young Rider Scholarship for 2017.
The Scholarship is open to all riders aged between 16 and 23, living and training in England, Scotland or Wales, in any of the three principle equestrian sports: dressage, show jumping or eventing.
“Following an extremely successful first year, we are thrilled to once again be offering the Scholarship programme for 2017. British Equestrianism has a very bright future and it is a privilege to be able to offer help and support to one ambitious young rider,” said Managing Director of BEDMAX, Tim Smalley.
Throughout the year, the 2017 Young Rider will represent BEDMAX in public, contribute to their communication and educational programme on social media, as well as attending a maximum of three educational or promotional events, including one as a demonstrator!
As an ambassador for BEDMAX, the winner will be helping to raise a greater awareness amongst younger riders of the crucial part that good bedding can play in keeping horses healthy in the stable, and fit to perform at their very best.
In return, BEDMAX will support the chosen Young Rider by providing a year’s supply of BEDMAX Shavings for one horse (150 bags), BEDMAX branded clothing and horse rug and offer expert support in education, training and PR.
Last year, eighteen-year-old event rider, Elspeth Jamieson from Ayrshire, and her leading horse Dasset Cooley Designed (Jamie) represented BEDMAX as their Young Rider.
“For young people, this is not an opportunity that you would usually get. BEDMAX have been a real support system and have given me so many fantastic opportunities. I would definitely recommend applying for the 2017 Young Rider Scholarship,” said Elspeth Jamieson.
To be in with the chance of winning the 2017 BEDMAX Young Rider Scholarship, applications must be made online by Wednesday 30th November 2016. For more details or to apply visit www.bedmaxshavings.com/scholarship/
