Riders Band Together for Australia Day Bushfire Benefits

In commemoration of Australia Day and to raise funds and awareness for those affected by raging bushfires in Australia, eventers banded together for an Australia Day Lecture Demo Event yesterday at Lowlands Equestrian Centre in Warwick, Warwickshire. A rocking list of celebrity riders including Alex Bragg, Bill Levett, Tim Price, Chris Burton, Piggy French, and more joined the cast for a day of learning and fun. Beneficiaries of ticket sales from this event include the Equestrian Fire Relief AustraliaBlazeAid and the Buy A Bale charities.

We’ve got a look at the action from the Lecture Demo Event, curated from social media. Much fun was had, lessons were learned, and most importantly the community came together in a collective effort to do good for others.

We promised some fun and fun we certainly had…She may have had the shorter legs but M.S.Team Eventing with Imogen Murray certainly showed her competitive edge! There were a few faults for Team Price and Chris Burton but oh so much fun…Tapner Eventing Team Team Bragg Eventing
