Gain Horse Feeds sponsor top UK event rider Oliver Townend
Gain Horse Feeds has secured an exciting new sponsorship deal with leading UK international event rider, Oliver Townend. Currently listed as the No.1 event rider in the British rankings, Oliver has had numerous high profile wins at both 3*& 4* level, including a prestigious double win at both Badminton and Burghley in the same year (2009).
This season, all of Oliver’s horses, including his 4* event prospect Armada, will be fed Gain Horse Feeds. Gain nutritionists are working closely with Oliver at his yard near Ellesmere in Shropshire, assessing the horses and creating scientifically supported diet plans to ensure all of the horses are receiving complete nutrition for optimum performance.
Oliver Townend commenting on the sponsorship: “We have had a great start to this season; the recent wins have me in the leading position. I hope that with Gain Horse Feeds’ on-going nutritional support, we can end our 2013 season as well as we started it.”
We are delighted to be providing our expert nutritional support to Oliver Townend and we are looking forward to working closely with him and his team at ODT Eventing,” said Gain Horse Feeds UK Business Manager, Anne Priestman. “I am confident that Oliver’s horses will benefit from a consistently nutritious and balanced diet, which is a key factor in high performance.”
Following the Gain sponsorship announcement, Oliver Townend and Nina Barbour who are joint owners of Harthill Stud in Cheshire, have also switched their breeding stock to Gain Horse Feeds. Harthill Stud is famous for producing top class event horses for the global market, placing an emphasis on traditional Irish and thoroughbred bloodlines. This means leading stallions including Lord Luis, Carousel, Honour Cruise and Ramiro B, as well as all the visiting mares and young-stock, will also be benefiting from the Gain Horse Feeds diet and the expert advice of Gain nutritionists.
