Michael Bacon Sales and Marketing Director of Saracen Horse Feeds:

“The racehorse to event horse bursary is a unique opportunity to support one lucky combination both with nutritional support and guidance and also outstanding training from the Saracen brand ambassadors, both previous winners were transformed throughout the eventing season”

2015’s bursary winner Zoe Gould commented;

“Winning the bursary was such an incredible experience. The training was so beneficial and we came away with such invaluable exercises to take home and work on. Legend, my Thoroughbred event horse, looks and feels fantastic on Saracen and the results speak for themselves. We had some of the best results during the season and I can’t thank the Horse & Hound team and Saracen Horse Feeds enough.”
