The winner of the 2018 Virbac 3D Worming BE80(T) Technical Merit has been presented with a £500 training bursary.
Adele Fowler was joined by Pippa and William Funnell at Olympia, The London International Horse Show in December to receive her prize which can be spent on British Eventing training.
The BE80(T) competition is the introductory level into the sport of eventing, with dedicated British Eventing Accredited Coaches on site to help competitors and offer expert advice. Virbac 3D Worming coaches support training across all the BE80(T) classes throughout the eventing season, which in 2019 will include 92 events.
“I want to thank Virbac for their support of grassroots eventers,” said Adele. “Whilst extremely enthusiastic, it is unlikely I will ever be winning Badminton, so to have acknowledgement and support at the lower levels is fantastic and gives me such a sense of pride that anything can be possible. The bursary will allow me to continue my dreams and make Badminton BE90 or BE100 Championships a possibility.”
“Virbac has a proud history of education and training, so we are delighted to be able to support grassroots riders through the Virbac 3D Worming BE80(T) training,” said Dr Rosie Naylor, Technical Product Manager, Virbac UK.
