    “Having Feedmark’s expert team of nutritionists on board for the coming season to advise on the health and wellbeing of horses will provide added value to our livery clients and competitors,” said Wellington Riding’s Rachael Corry.

    Feedmark’s managing director Chris Townsend added: “There’s something for everyone at Wellington and we’re looking forward to providing advice and support to help riders with the individual nutritional needs of their horses and the activities they undertake with them in 2018.”

    She will also wear Jockey Club Racecourses-branded clothing on racedays.

    “As everyone knows I love talking about our sport and trying to get new people interested in it,” said Bryony.

    “Horses and racing have been the biggest part of my life since I was tiny and I know that the future of racing is just as important to Jockey Club Racecourses as it is to me and my family.

    “That’s why I’m delighted to be working with them and I can’t wait to get started.”
