A horse found abandoned in South London at just a few months old has made an amazing transformation and is enjoying a new lease of life as a companion for young racehorses with her Suffolk rehomers, the Southcott family.
When World Horse Welfare Field Officer Nick White first visited Polaris in January 2016, he found her in fly-grazing in a field on Purley Way in Croydon with one other young foal and a mare in poor condition.
Rowena Day wins Equetech Real Rider Competition
Following British equestrian fashion brand Equetech’s successful nationwide campaign #equetechrealrider to find four real riders who embodied their diverse customer base and brand spirit, the company have finally revealed the winning entries in a stunning series of photographs to co-inside with their 25-year celebrations this year.
Rowena Day, 31 from West Sussex was their first winner pulled from a competition that ran in Horse & Rider Magazine. She said:
“I’m flabbergasted, things like this just don’t happen to me! This really gives me a boost in what recently has been a low point in my life. I’ve been a fan of both Equetech and Horse & Rider Magazine for a long time; I feel ecstatic to be given a chance to be part of the #equetechrealriderscampaign. Equetech has been a firm favourite of mine over the last thirteen years of horse ownership especially the active jodhpurs. I can’t wait to take part in the campaign and enjoy wearing the clothes I’ve won.”
