A Lanark teenager is using Charlotte Dujardin as her inspiration as she targets future Horse Of The Year Show success, helped by a new sponsorship deal with Glasgow-based SWGR.
Brooke Kehoe, 17, enjoyed a breakthrough 2019, qualifying for Horse Of The Year at the Royal Highland Show on only her first attempt.
The former Lanark Grammar School student has now been boosted by the financial support of recruitment and training specialist SWGR, who have funded a new jacket for Brooke as well as a blanket for her pony, Prince. Wishaw-born Brooke is continuing to train from her home farm in Lanark to ensure she is ready for the new events season when it commences.
She said: “I think 2020 is going to be another exciting year for me as I hope to qualify for Horse Of The Year Show again and also try qualify for The Royal International.
“I have achieved so many goals already, but still hope one day to win Horse Of The Year Show and many other major titles. My sporting hero is Charlotte Dujardin, she is the most successful British dressage rider and has won many major titles including three gold medals and a silver at the Olympic Games.”
On the sponsorship from SWGR, Brooke added: “The support from SWGR means so much to me, it’s my first sponsor and will hopefully help get me and my pony Prince recognised more and raise awareness of the sport. It’s not easy to get this support so it really is appreciated.”
Terry Flynn, managing director of SWGR, said: “It was our pleasure to provide some backing to Brooke ahead of what is hopefully a very successful 2020 for her, whenever the season begins. We all look forward to seeing the SWGR brand at future Horse Of The Year shows.”
