Over To You memories wanted for a new book

  • Would you like your memories of Over To You to be included in a book?

    Jeanette Brakewell’s legendary eventer — the most medalled horse in the sport’s history — is retiring from competition at the end of this year.

    To mark the end of Over To You’s spectacular career, Eventing Worldwide and Jeanette are producing a book about him, to be launched in September.

    “We are looking for readers to send in their memories of ‘Jack’,” said Hilary Manners from Eventing Worldwide. “It could be anything about him that has stuck in readers’ minds, a particular performance or perhaps why you might have voted for him in the Horse & Hound best loved horses rankings [H&H, 14 February].

    “The final chapter of the book will be made up of tributes from both riders and spectators who have followed his long and remarkable career.”

    A percentage of all book sales will be donated to Spinal Research.

    Please send your memories (no more than 100 words) by email to info@eventingworldwide.com, with the email subject JACK, or send them to Eventing Worldwide/JACK, Corner House, Normanton, Grantham NG32 3BH, to arrive by 25th May.
