Top young showjumper Pippa Allen has secured new sponsorship from the makers of Fibre-Beet, a quick soak conditioning feed for horses.
Pippa, 23, is a very talented rider who is now back home in the UK, after spending two and half years in Germany riding for international showjumpers Helena and Tim Stormanns in Eschweiler.
Having competed from a very young age, Pippa started on the national pony circuit winning many top titles, and began competing internationally for Great Britain from the age of 12. She was also selected to be part of the UK Sport lottery funded British Equestrian World Class Programme in 2014.
With two European Team gold medals under her belt, Pippa has competed all over the world and achieved major wins at prestigious competitions including: The Horse of the Year Show, the Royal International Horse Show, Hickstead, Scope, National Finals, Olympia, Aachen, Hagan and the Liverpool International Horse Show.
This year Pippa is aiming her top horses Hope Springs and Carthagon GZ at county shows and international classes, as well producing her current young horses.
Now based in West Yorkshire at Tong Lane End Equestrian Centre, Pippa is running her own yard with her partner and fellow showjumper Stevie Crosby. It has excellent facilities to produce the competition horses, and also for Pippa to build up her teaching work, as she has recently passed her UKCC Level 2 coaching qualification.
Pippa said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Fibre-Beet, as it’s a product that we already feed to our competition horses. They love the taste, it keeps them in great condition – and it’s so easy to use.”
Will I’Anson of British Horse Feeds, makers of Fibre-Beet, said: “Pippa is a truly talented young rider with so many great wins to her name already. We are delighted to be supporting her and look forward to sharing her success throughout 2017.”
“Fibre-Beet is an excellent feed for show horses as it provides non-heating, high fibre beet pulp and quality alfalfa, to build condition and deliver essential amino acids. We are currently undertaking exciting research in to the properties of Fibre-Beet which go beyond delivering nutrients for work and maintenance.”
