Young dressage rider and H&H blogger Charlie Hutton, 20, has secured a new three-year sponsorship deal for his horses from Blue Chip Feeds.

Blue Chip founder Clare Blaskey said, “We are very pleased to have renewed our sponsorship of this very talented young rider.

“It is company policy to help these young riders to reach their goals, representing our country. We’re all delighted to support Charlie and wish him every success.”

A member of the Junior Team in 2006 and 2007, Charlie was a member of the Young Rider Team in 2008 with Abira.

This season he was again a Young Rider team member with Merlin Nemorensis (Nemo) and at the 2009 European Dressage Championships, the pair finished best of the Brits individually.

Charlie also competed at the British Dressage National Championships and competing at Grand Prix this season for the first time, he was delighted to finish just outside the Top 10 in the Grand Prix Kur with Penny Manning’s Aljano.

Based near Cirencester, Charlie is trained mostly by his mother Pammy Hutton, with regular help from Erik Thielgaard.

Charlie said he was delighted with the support from Blue Chip, singling out Nemo as an example of how Blue Chip Pro can make an amazing difference.

He explains, “Nemo is a very big, powerful horse and since feeding Blue Chip Pro, it has really given him the extra muscle development and structure to work towards Grand Prix level.”
