Emily King Joins Team HorseHage!
HorseHage is proud to announce that young event-rider, Emily King, has been signed up as a sponsored rider and her team of event horses will be supported by HorseHage dust-free bagged forage.
Her mother, Mary, already a very valued member of the team, has been sponsored by HorseHage for the past 15 years and now Emily will join her as an ambassador for the product.
Based in Devon, the King family could certainly be classed as eventing royalty. Mary has represented Great Britain at no fewer than six Olympics, spanning 20 years from 1992 to 2012 and has an impressive number of world and European medals to her name as well as being British Open Champion four times. She has also won the prestigious four star Badminton Horse Trials twice as well as winning at Burghley and Kentucky.
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Emily, who is just 21 years of age, competed at her first event aged just 12 and represented Great Britain at the age of 15, finishing 7th overall. She won individual silver at the Junior Europeans in 2012, team gold in the Young Rider Europeans in 2015 and in the same year made her four-star debut.
Said Chris Tar of HorseHage: “HorseHage has been a long-standing supporter of Mary and we are delighted to welcome Emily onto our team of sponsored riders. We are sure it will be an exciting partnership.”
“HorseHage is a family business and we value the strong mother/daughter relationship that Mary and Emily have, working together as a team but still keeping their competitive edge with each other. Having Emily join us seemed a natural progression and we look forward to watching them both representing Team HorseHage at future events.”
Said Emily: “I’m looking forward to being an ambassador for HorseHage alongside Mum. I’ve loved eventing for as long as I can remember and growing up with Mum being who she is and having the opportunity to travel with her to all the big competitions has fuelled my love for the sport even more! Our horses love HorseHage and we can compete in confidence, know they are getting a dust-free forage which helps to maintain a healthy respiratory system which is vital for performance horses to be able to compete at their best.”
