Feed company Dodson & Horrell is to support the 2010 Golden Horseshoe Ride (16-18 May) across Exmoor.
The company will help fund the vetting area and the six veterinary surgeons that examine horses before and after each day’s competition and on the course.
Organiser Barbara Wigley said: “Funding for the Golden Horseshoe Ride becomes more crucial year by year.
“For us to get support from a major company like Dodson & Horrell is not only a practical help but an acknowledgment that endurance riding generally is being recognised as a national equestrian discipline.”
Dodson & Horrell will also supply tubs of Surelyte, a comprehensive blend of electrolyte salts, as prizes in kind for various competition and condition awards, and goody bags for all competing riders.
