Jockeys go head-to-head with eventers in bucking bull contest

  • Who has more stickability, jockeys or event riders?

    Claire Lomas — who was paralysed in an eventing  fall in 2007 — has set herself another challenge to raise money for the Nicholls Spinal Injuries Foundation.

    She is hosting a “Bucking Fun” night on 1 February 2014 at Newbury racecourse, pitting a team of jockeys — including AP McCoy, Dom Elsworth and Choc Thornton — against eventers including Paul Tapner, Tina Cook and Laura Collett to see who can stay longest on a mechanical bull.

    “Hopefully, it will be a laugh and we’ll raise lots of money,” said Claire.
