Story of the NAF Burghley Brolly

NAF Burghley Brolley 2014 – The Undercover Story

The Celebrity Talk Area at Burghley Horse Trials sponsored by NAF is a “must see” area for spectators and riders alike, hosting talks from both high profiled riders to television presenters to members of the Equestrian Industry. NAF wanted to give one lucky person the opportunity to have a memento of the event so in 2014 NAF asked that each individual who went onto the stage could sign the NAF Burghley Brolly.

There were some fantastic signatures including, Yogi Breisner, Ian Stark and Captain Mark Phillips, to riders such as William Fox-Pitt and Mary King and then the inspirational Claire Lomas to sporting presenter Claire Balding and many more!


NAF through Facebook started a competition to win the NAF Burghley Brolly and also offered to make a donation to the winners chosen charity! There was a huge response but there could only be one winner – Alice Harvey who was presented with the NAF Burghley Brolly at RDA Erme Valley, her chosen charity.


Catherine Wakely, NAF Area Sales Manager for the South West and South Wales said, “Peggy Douglas was delighted to receive the donation on behalf of the RDA Erme Valley and was thrilled Alice had picked RDA Erme Valley as her chosen charity. Peggy had all horses and ponies turned out immaculately at the presentation, which had a buzzing atmosphere as the children mounted and got lined up for the photo-shoot. There are so many helpers of all ages with the support being fantastic and to top it off the horses and ponies were so well behaved to have the umbrella open for the photos. It was lovely to meet such an appreciative group of people who are doing some fantastic work and making a real difference too many people’s lives. I was really proud to be working for a company who not only makes great products but also tries to give something back to each area of the industry.”
