Young endurance rider Fiona Hamilton is to be sponsored by Alavis MSM, supplier of food-grade methyl-sulfonyl-methane for performance horses.

Fiona will receive equipment, entry fees and competition expenses on an annual basis.

Fiona and her pony, the 13.1hh Burfield Queen Bee, are currently training towards team selection for the World Championships in Spain. The partnership won a gold award at last year’s Golden Horseshoe ride.

Alavis MSM has also agreed to sponsor the under-21 young riders endurance squad in the run-up to the World Championships.
