We are delighted and very excitied to announce that we have teamed up with World renowed Olympic rider Vittoria Panizzon! Vittoria is of Italian decent having represented Italy at pony, Junior, Young Rider and Senior levels. She was Junior European champion in 2000 riding Grommet who now spends his retirement free range on Vittoria's farm! Vittoria competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and in the 2012 Olympics, acheiving 11th place on Borough Pennyz whom she also rode at Gatcombe Festival of British Eventing this year. Pennyz is owned and bred by Sally Bullen and at only 9 her acheivevments are fantastic - she is a phenomenal jumper and has gained a large fan club already! Vittoria and her right hand lady Bryony are currently in Poland representing Italy in the European Eventing Championships with 'Elvis' who was kept very contented on the 3 day journey over there by munching on our haylage!
Vittoria approached us as she was looking for consistently high quality haylage to use both at home in Gloucetershire and on the road when eventing. Vittoria and her team understand how important it is for her top event horses to have the same quality haylage throughout the year.
Vittoria told us, 'Quality forage is vital for us! Not only is it of utmost importance to be feeding our horses the best, but feeding top quality forage can also keep your feed bills down. It's a false economy to try and cut corners when it comes to feeding!'
To read the full interveiw with Vittoria and her reasons for choosing us to supply her haylage, look out for the next issue of Your Horse and Country magazine where all is explained in a double page spread!
