Carl Hester and Richard Davison Dazzle at Bolesworth

Suregrow sponsored riders Carl Hester and Richard Davison are on winning form after taking first and second place in the grand prix freestyle to music at the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show.

Carl Hester concluded a memorable dressage programme at the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show by being crowned grand prix freestyle to music champion.

Carl, winner of 10 major championship medals and a British dressage statesman during his illustrious career, thrilled a capacity crowd that basked in the Thursday afternoon sunshine with 10-year-old gelding Hawtins Delicato.

Their performance in the Equitop Myoplast-sponsored class showcased the rich potential of Carl's exciting ride, offering further evidence why they are likely to be Great Britain team members at the World Equestrian Games in America later this year.

A score of 76.225 per cent proved enough to edge out Richard Davison and Bubblingh - they recorded an impressive 75.875 per cent.

"He gave me a great feeling," Carl said. "I am beginning to understand him, and it is getting to know him.

"The feeling on him is incredible. He has come here and gone up a level again.

"I did the best extended trots I've done with him today, and it is such a luxury having a horse that looks like him. He is so comfortable and nice in the hand.

"I am very happy with how it is all going. He just needs to tick along."

Breathe Life into Your Paddocks with Suregrow CSM

Did you know 85% of grassland is mineral and trace element deficient?

Your paddocks and grassland may look in reasonable condition but is both the soil and grass the very best it can be?

CSM March 2018 kula.jpg

CSM from the Suregrow range provides more than 70 minerals and trace elements. A number of these enter into the plant and can be beneficial to the health of the animals eating the grass.

CSM injects a wide range of minerals and trace elements into the soil which maximises the utilisation of Nitrogen, Phosphate, Potash and Sulphur. This totally natural product stimulates root development and strength giving a denser sward, while also improving the eating quality of grass and acts as a soil conditioner which results in a denser more vibrant turf.

The minerals in CSM have many benefits for both the grass and horses. Calcium helps the grass growth and neutralises plant cell acidity improving the palatability of the grass. Increased levels of Magnesium in the grass can have a calming effect on the horse or pony and supports the absorption of Phosphate. Sodium, improves the palatability of grass and reduces the Potassium imbalance in growing grass. Chloride’s benefit is that it supports the transportation of nutrients in the plant.

Oliver Townend Wins The Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event

Congratulations to Suregrow sponsored rider Oliver Townend and Cooley Master Class for winning the 2018 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event title.

After a clear round cross country, Oliver stood in third position overnight. It was a tense finish as Oliver took the lead from Michael Jung, with a foot perfect fault-free show jumping round with Cooley Master Class, to finish on his dressage score of 28.7 penalties

Oliver has had Cooley Master Class, owned by Angela Hislop, since he was a four-year-old and is a firm favourite on the yard. Sired by the much sought after Belgian Warmblood Stallion Ramiro B out of The Swallow, Coolio as he is known at home is now leading the way in eventing.

Said Oliver: “Obviously it’s a fantastic feeling to win. The owners gambled on me to win their money back, and I’m pleased the horses have come through with great results and that I’ve repaid the owners’ gamble on me.”

Oliver had a fantastic event not only winning with Cooley Master Class, but also taking seventh with MHS King Joules. Both horses are 13-year-old Irish Sport Horses.

Oliver was delighted to win, as this victory is his second leg of the Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing. To secure the title the rider must win the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton, Land Rover Burghley and Land Rover Kentucky Horse Trials consecutively. Oliver won Burghley last September with Ballaghmor Class, who is entered at Badminton along with Cooley SRS
