Win A Ride Out With One Of Your Eventing Heroes!

World Horse Welfare has launched a completely unique summer prize draw, which offers riders the chance to win a ride out with one of their eventing heroes. These incredible prizes are being offered by Zara Tindall, Pippa Funnell, Alex Hua Tian and Sir Mark Todd. For non-riders there are other money-can’t-buy prizes to be won.

Many riders have the ambition to meet one of these eventing superstars and would love the opportunity to chat to them about their careers and horses – just imagine doing that whilst hacking out alongside them and it has all the ingredients for a bucket list dream come true!

Theses prizes have generously been donated by the eventers and others, who are Patrons and friends of World Horse Welfare, all keen to support of the charity’s work improving the lives of horses and stamping out suffering worldwide.

“With a spotlight currently on the mental well-being of horses, this was an obvious moment for us to offer this opportunity to a supporter of World Horse Welfare – a charity very close to my heart – where the welfare of horses is always the primary concern.

“I’m really looking forward to it as well, meeting the winner and their horse, finding out about their horsey experiences and ambitions. The views from the top of Holmbury Hill where we will be hacking to are staggeringly beautiful. Let’s just hope for decent weather!” 

The prizes are part of the summer fundraising campaign for the charity whose centres have been shut since March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. All proceeds from the prize draw will help horses in need, as the charity anticipates even more horses needing rescue in the UK in the coming months and significant challenges for working horses across the world due to the pandemic. 

Entry into the competition is via the charity’s website ( and the draw is open until 14th September 2020 (11th September for postal votes). Tickets cost £5 each and all proceeds will help fund the work of World Horse Welfare.
