The auction is running in the build-up to the AHT’s equestrian awards ceremony, which takes place this evening (27 October).

There are 45 lots to bid on offer, all of which have been donated to raise funds for the AHT’s work fighting disease and injury in animals.

“The annual AHT UK Equestrian Awards take place this Thursday and you too can join in the festivities by bidding in the pre-event silent auction,” said an AHT spokesman.

“There are 45 exclusive lots to bid on, all of which have been donated especially to raise money for our important work fighting disease and injury in animals.

“Up for grabs is a private morning with dressage Olympic gold medallist Carl Hester, a holiday in St Lucia, beautiful artwork, once in a lifetime sporting experiences and much, much more.”
