Top riders will be strutting their stuff on the catwalk in January, all in the name of charity.

On Saturday 16 January Newbury racecourse is hosting an evening of “fun, frolics and fashion” in aid of Spinal Research and the Claire Lomas Walk Campaign.

Event rider Claire was paralysed in a freak accident at Osberton Horse Trials in May 2007. She is determined to walk again.

High profile riders from eventing, dressage, show jumping and racing will be modelling on the night.

Top names so far include William Whitaker, Tina Fletcher, Carl Hester, Maria Eilberg, Andrew Gould, Daisy Dick, Sarah Cohen, Laura Collett and possibly Oliver Townend.

The riders-turned-models will be given top tips during the day by Laura Toogood, former European Team Young rider and now professional catwalk model, ready to take to the stage in the evening.

They will be showing off equestrian and non-equestrian clothes.

The evening includes the fashion show, a two-course dinner, auction, live band and free pass to any Newbury raceday.

Tickets cost £45 or £55 for those closer to the catwalk. Tables are for ten but smaller groups will be taken.

Cheques should be made out to the Claire Lomas Walk campaign and sent with an and SAE to Claire Lomas, The Chestnuts, Eye Kettleby, Melton Mowbray, Leics LE14 2TD
