The 2008 Red Dragon Festival of Endurance was a huge success this year despite the poor weather. More than 300 riders competing over varying distances enjoyed the breath taking scenery over the roof of Mid Wales and competed for a huge array of prizes.
Organiser Pat Conn was delighted with the high number of entrants and the success of the event.
British Horse Feeds were there to support the event and were proud to sponsor the Golden Dragon and Dragon's Tail.
The winner of the Dragon's Tail Jane Stanley, who has been competing for 25 years, was delighted to win a years supply of Speedi-Beet courtesy of British Horse Feeds. Her horse Sunami, a handsome 11 year old homebred Arab X gelding also won Best Condition. Jane and Sumani travelled over from Ireland and arrived in high spirits after the 12 hour journey.
In second place came Lesley Dore on Firebird and in third place, Jo Chisholm on Grey Medlar. Both received a six month supply of Speedi-Beet.
The Golden Dragon winner Amanda Nicholson who is based in Lands End, Cornwall, thoroughly enjoyed the ride on her 7 year old Arab X gelding Esta Leonardo Diabo. Said Amanda: "I thoroughly enjoyed the ride despite the fact that is was raining and blowing a gale because that is what endurance riding is all about". Amanda won a year's supply of Speedi-Beet, and both riders in second and third place won a six month supply. Carol Jones and Ptolemaeus came in second place, followed by Ann Harrison and Millennium Chorus.
Simon Parker of British Horse Feeds said: "Speedi-Beet is ideal for endurance horses as it is high in fibre, which helps provide the required stamina for horses to compete over long distances."
Speedi-Beet from British Horse Feeds provides rapid re-hydration for performance horses whilst optimising energy release rate. This is due to the soluble fibre in Speedi-Beet, which has a high water holding capacity increasing the amount of fluid in the horses' hindgut. This reservoir can then be drawn upon during prolonged exercise such as endurance riding to help replace water lost through sweating.
