BHS campaign proves a draw for dressage rider Carl Hester

  • Carl Hester is the latest equestrian celebrity to sign up to the British Horse Society’s (BHS) Drawing the Line on Indiscriminate Breeding campaign.

    Stars like Alan Titchmarsh, Ian Stark, Lucinda Green and Kelly Marks have all drawn pictures for the campaign to make people think before putting their mares in foal.

    As well as the pictures, prizes to be auctioned include a lesson from David Broome and a visit to Carl Hester’s yard.

    Eventing star Mary King is said: “In the UK we end up producing too many unsuitable horses and ponies which face an uncertain future.

    “That’s why I support The British Horse Society’s campaign and want to urge people to think before you breed.”

    The donations will be auctioned in October 2010, with all proceeds going to the BHS welfare department in support of this cause.

    Details of next year’s auction will be available shortly.
