With the start of the season just around the corner, we are extremely excited to announce that Scotts of Thrapston, has taken up title sponsorship of CCI1* and CCI2* course walks at British events for 2015.

The course walks provide an invaluable opportunity for first-timers and more experienced riders alike to gain expert advice on how to tackle the cross country phase at this level, with four to five course walks scheduled for each event. The internationally renowned coaches providing the course walks are Caroline Moore, Nick Turner, Philip Surl and Christie Wright.

“At Scotts we are eternally committed to supporting the growth of eventing, having run a successful Rider Development Programme for the last 4 years, in conjunction with Carlton Horse Trials. To sponsor the CIC* and CIC** course walks at the selected BE events will be a privilege, and we look forward to meeting those individuals who continue to succeed through sheer hard work and talent. We are keen to learn about their individual journeys, so we can grow and develop our products in line with their demanding needs and help them to fully realise their dream facilities at home.” James Scott, Director at Scotts of Thrapston.
