With the Speedi-Beet Horse Inspection Area all set and ready in front of the beautiful Blenheim Palace, it was Sasha Hargreaves’ Woodlands Be Daring that took the British Horse Feeds Best Turned Out award.
Owned by Sasha Hargreaves, Mr & Mrs Bill and Alison Hargreaves, the 12-year-old bay gelding wowed the judges with an immaculate turnout as he strutted up and down the Speedi-Beet Horse Inspection Area.
Said Hattie I’Anson of British Horse Feeds: “We were delighted to present the British Horse Feeds Best Turned Out Award at Blenheim which recognises the hard work the riders and their grooms put in.
“Woodlands Be Daring looked in excellent condition and it was quite clear that Sasha’s groom, Taryn, had gone to a lot of effort with his turn out.”
Sasha and Woodlands Be Daring, also known as Desmond, won a 6-month supply of Fibre-Beet as part of their prize.
Added Hattie: “It was fantastic to find out that Desmond is in fact already fed on Fibre-Beet as he struggles to hold his condition, especially during the winter months when he drops the weight.”
The British Horse Feeds Best Turned Out was judged on condition score, coat shine, hoof condition, along with overall turnout including plaiting and quarter marks.
