Host of top riders signed up for charity fashion show

  • A host of top riders including Carl Hester and Andrew Gould have been signed up to strut their stuff on the catwalk at a charity fashion show at Newbury racecourse next weekend.

    Riders from dressage to polo will modelling at an evening of “Fun, frolics and fashion” on Saturday 16 January, hosted by former event rider Claire Lomas, who was paralysed in a fall at Osberton Horse Trials in May 2007.

    From the world of dressage Laura Bechtolsheimer, Carl Hester and Andrew Gould will be taking part and Daisy Dick, Tina Cook, Laura Collett and Harry Dzenis will represent event riders.

    The evening is in aid of Spinal Research and Claire Lomas Walk Campaign and there are still some tickets available.

    ”I am very grateful to all the busy riders for being models, and we have some lovely clothes to show off,” Claire told H&H.

    “The team at Newbury racecourse has been fantastic to work with. We still have some tickets left to sell so please come along and enjoy this one off entertaining evening!”

    Fashion ranging from equestrian clothes, casual wear, evening dress and underwear by 20 designers will be showcased on the night.
