The Olympic bronze medallist recognised that sometimes young riders need “a little bit of a leg up” and used her own sponsorship relationship to arrange support for these three talented riders – Lucinda Crawford (16, Scotland), Zara Lye (17, Suffolk) and Leilia Paske (16, Suffolk).
“I’m so grateful for this opportunity and very much looking forward to seeing a difference, because good products help us win great prizes” commented Zara Lye.
As part of the support package, the former Burghley winner, Caroline has selected a number of products from the Equine Products UK range that she has used with her own horses and that she believes the girls will benefit from in the run up to and during the 2018 season.
“When I came over to the UK from New Zealand for the first, this sport is a very hard sport to break into. I see these guys working really really hard, come rain or shine, they are out there riding their horses and doing school work and doing a really good job to balance it all. We’ve got fantastic sponsors in Equine Products UK and I just think they deserve and could really benefit from a bit of a leg up.” Caroline Powell.
“I’m really looking forward to moving up to 2* in 2018 and consolidating our Intermediate form and I’m therefore really excited to be able to work with and benefit from these products to give me the competitive edge. I’m so grateful to both Equine Products UK and to Caroline for this opportunity.” Lucinda Crawford.
All three young riders train with Caroline, either at her Suffolk base or in Scotland, on a regular basis, which is where the talent, hard work and dedicated was recognised by Caroline.
“I’m very excited to experience and see the difference in performance of my horses next year after using the Equine Products range. Thank you to everyone who made this possible.” Leilia Paske
