Elite Stallions has teamed up with Olympic medallist Mary King and her daughter Emily King to offer the chance to win a once-in-lifetime experience this season.
Four-time British champion and six-time Olympian Mary King has been at the top of the sport for decades, with Olympic, World and European medals under her belt in addition to wins at Badminton, Burghley and Kentucky. Her daughter Emily is fast following in her footsteps, with individual silver and team gold medals at junior and young rider level, a national U21 Championship win, and fourth place in her first CCI4* aged just 19.
Anyone who books a mare in to either Jaguar Mail or Cartier in 2017 will be in with a chance of winning either a training session, lunch and yard tour with Mary & Emily at their home in Devon, or a day behind-the-scenes with the pair at an event where they are competing.
Jaguar Mail is currently ranked fourth on the WBFSH rankings for eventing, and is the sire of countless successful event horses, including 2015 European Champion FischerTakinou and double World Young Horse Champion, Tenareze. Jaguar Mail, who has 82% Thoroughbred blood, enjoyed a phenomenal international grand prix career for Sweden, appearing at the 2008 Olympic Games and winning the prestigious Lanaken 'Sires of the World' Grand Prix in 2007. Mary & Emily King have two Jaguar Mail foals due later this year.
Cartier is a Holstein stallion with a brilliant pedigree, who jumped internationally himself and is already the sire of international grand prix jumpers Erasmus van de Heffinck, Expensive and Record D'Oreal, in addition to a growing number of successful CCI2* and CCI3* eventers, among them Hopper Ten Hunsel and Alcatraz.
Both stallions are standing in the UK for 2017, available with fresh and chilled semen, with frozen also available for Jaguar Mail.
Already used Jaguar Mail or Cartier this season? Don't worry, as you will automatically be entered into the draw. The more mares you book in, the more chances you have to win!
