Winner of Alltech’s Equine Hero From Cambs

The latest winner of Alltech’s global search for an equine hero is awarded to Katrina Seward from Chatteris in Cambridgeshire.

Katrina was nominated by Vicky Jeffries, a long time friend of Katrina and her 26-year-old daughter Bianca.

With the help of her mum, Bianca runs a training yard specialising in problem horses, breaking and schooling youngsters and producing competition horses, as well as competing in affiliated show jumping.

For many years Vicky has spent time with Katrina and their horses and credits her will helping her fulfil her own dream of owning a horse.

Vicky had this to say of her equine hero: “Katrina’s daughter Bianca loves to show jump and compete at shows. Katrina dedicates all of her time to helping Bianca with shows and show preparation and drives all over the country to ensure that Bianca can take part in the best competitions.

“Not only does Katrina ensure that Bianca gets to the competition, but she also continually makes sacrifices, going without things herself so that Bianca and the horses can have everything they need while competing.

“Apart from being a wonderful mother and an Equine Hero to her daughter, Katrina is also an Equine Hero to me as she is always helping me out. Katrina invests her time in making sure that I can attend some unaffiliated shows and at the shows she organises everything and is always on standby to lend a hand, her help is invaluable!

“Katrina’s kindness knows no bounds; helping me to get my very first pony Prince, who I still have today.”

Vicky finishes by saying:” Katrina does so much for us that she deserves something for herself and this is why she is my Equine Hero!”

Alltech’s campaign to recognise equine heroes has captured the imagination of people in the UK with Katrina being voted the second UK based equine hero in the past three months.

If you know an Equine Hero and want to recognise the hard work they do, you can nominate them by filling in the form on the Equine Hero website.

The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy takes place from August 23 – September 7.
