JUMP 4 JOY supports Forces Equine to enable RAF Arena Eventing Championships
Following a reach out for support from Forces Equine , the organisation that supports Emergency Services Responders and Armed Forces riders , show jumping manufacturer Jump 4 Joy , have joined forces and stepped in to assist them with the provision of jumps for the forthcoming Forces Equine Games ( FEG ).
The organisers were keen to find simulated cross country fences to enable them to offer an arena eventing championship for the Royal Air Force to be held at the Games which are taking place on 1st and 2nd September at Arena UK , Lincolnshire .
“ We were made aware that the best jumps to use for this purpose were those made by Jump 4 Joy ,” said Debi Heath French , Founder of Forces Equine . “ I made an approach to the company and we were delighted when they offered to step up in support of our members and provide a selection of 10 XC fences as well as a joker show jumping fence . This means that we can now offer the Jump 4 Joy Royal Air Force Arena Eventing Championship Loriners Leg , which is wonderful news for our members .”
Nigel Underwood , MD at Jump 4 Joy commented , “ We are delighted to be able to help this very worthwhile organisation and its members . It has been a challenging year for everyone , and we greatly value the support provided by the services and emergency responders - it ’ s our way of giving a little something back in the best way we know how ! We are very much looking forward to being involved in the Championships . We are proud to support those who serve .”
This year , the Games will be celebrating the NHS and the contribution of all frontline workers during the pandemic . To mark their achievements , Jump 4 Joy have designed a show jump in recognition of the NHS - the proceeds of which go directly to NHS funds .
Supermarket worker wins Harry Hall ’ s star prize with over £ 9,000 raised for equestrian charities
Susan Campbell from Aberdeen won the star prize in the Harry Hall charity raffle - a brand new Cheval Liberte Horse Trailer with a 1-year Harry Hall Trailer insurance policy .
Susan told the Team at Harry Hall : “ I ’ m so shocked ! I ’ ve not won anything like this before and I wasn ’ t thinking about winning , it was just nice to donate to charity . I definitely didn ’ t expect to win a brand new trailer , it ’ s brilliant !!
“ We have 5 horses - a mix of Arab , Welsh and Connemara . They are all youngsters that I enjoy raising and showing in-hand .
“ My horsebox was becoming too expensive to run and getting out to shows again was looking unlikely , so this is a real help . I work shifts for Asda , picking home shopping deliveries between 3am – 9am , which has been really busy with the increase in home deliveries during the pandemic .
“ Winning this trailer means I can ’ t wait to hit the show ring again . I had to try really hard not to cry when the girls at Harry Hall rang to tell me the news …!”
Chris Wainwright , Chief Executive of Brooke , Action for Working Horses and Donkeys commented , “ We ’ re absolutely thrilled with the success of Harry Hall ’ s Charity raffle and are delighted by how much it has raised for Brooke , RDA and the Horse Trust ! Thank you to Harry Hall and everyone that bought a ticket , it ’ s due to support like this that we ’ re able to continue our vital work improving equine welfare around the world .”
