Ellen Whitaker supports fresh2o
As one of the most glamourous showjumpers out there Ellen is in great demand as a brand ambassador - but that's not the only reason we admire her! Hugely successful at national and international level, she more than lives up to the legendary Whitaker name and we're delighted to have her as a fresh2o ambdassador.
Shane Breen supports fresh2o
Clear rounds from Shane Breen have contributed to many Irish Nations Cup victories, including those at Dublin in 2006 & 2011 and Hickstead in 2013. He also heads up Breen Equestrian alongside wife Chloe (daughter of Hickstead founder Douglas Bunn).
It was at Hickstead that Shane found out about fresh2o's work and signed up to show his support. Thanks for getting involved Shane!
Abdullah Al Sharbatly supports fresh2o
We're pleased to announce that Abdullah Al Sharbatly, Olympic medallist and winner of the FEI World Cup Arab League, has pledged his support to fresh2o. Which he found time to do despite being busy winning today's Hickstead Master's Challenge - congratulations Abdullah!
"I was appalled to discover that a child dies every 17 seconds as a result of dirty water. If this happened to even a single child we should all be paying attention. That's why I'm going to do all I can to support fresh2o in their mission to change this."
Geoff Billington signs up to support fresh2o
Geoff Billington is the latest high profile show jumper to confirm support for fresh2o's mission to eradicate water poverty. Having heard about our work, and how EQ donate profits to the cause, Geoff pledged his support at the British Jumping Derby, Hickstead.
Geoff has been a leading figure on the show jumping circuit for more than 30 years so we're really happy to have him on board.
Fresh2o and EQ go to Hickstead!
Thanks to everyone who came down to support us on Sunday 23rd June at the British Jumping Derby, Hickstead. The box was buzzing with guests including celebrity supporters Darius Campbell, Guy Williams and Debbie Arnold. Supermodel Jodie Kidd even dropped by!

Our Duchess - an EQ success story
During the usual scout for top young horses Candice found the very green 5 year old mare and snapped her up immediately; she was named Our Duchess. She trained with EQ for 3 years and was given to Nicole Pavitt to jump the bigger courses, winning many classes and qualifying for several championships. Our Duchess was sold on to the Curbishley family in 2012 and building on Candice's strong foundation, Our Duchess' star has continued to ascend.
She is ridden by the Curbishley's daughter, but while she is at school Nicole continues to compete nationally with victories coming thick and fast. The highlight of 2012 was seeing her awarded Newcomer of the Year at the Horse of the Year Show, and 2013 has already brought wins at Windsor, Wales and West and qualifications for Foxhunter and Talent Seekers for HOYS 2013. We can't wait to see what she does next!
"Our Duchess scooted round a sizeable course in this speed class to beat their 73 rivals by almost 4sec."

"Nicole also claimed the H&H Foxhunter second round on her HOYS 2012 newcomers champion Our Duchess."
