The Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund ‘Evening with the Stars’ returns to the RAF Private Members Club in Mayfair on the evening of 28th November 2017. Stars in the hot seat include a British showjumper who hails from a family synonymous with top-level sport, William Whitaker.

He’s joined by the man behind the feel-good equestrian story of the year, Irish eventer Jonty Evans, who hit the headlines this summer thanks to a crowdfunding campaign to secure the ride on his top horse.

The charity is also delighted to welcome ITV news presenter and equestrian Alastair Stewart OBE, who will be sharing insights into the sport and his career. The illustrious panel is completed by David Mould, a former National Hunt jockey who rode for high-profile owners such as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, Sir Winston Churchill and Oscar-winning actor Gregory Peck.

This prestigious line-up will gather for an evening of interviews and discussion, hosted by top equestrian TV presenter and commentator Steven Wilde.

The evening will raise vital funds for this unique equestrian charity, which was founded to help those who become injured working with or riding horses, as well as being a fantastic night out and a chance to mingle with the stars. Raising funds is key to survival of this valuable charity, offering a lifeline to those connected with the equestrian world.
