Kärcher (UK) Ltd and The Juniper Co are proud to announce their sponsorship of local Oxfordshire event rider, Ginny Howe. At only 24 years old Ginny has already completed Badminton Horse Trials and competed at an international level for her country and is regarded as one of the UK’s most promising eventing talents.

Starting as a member of the Heythrop Pony Club, Ginny has successfully progressed through Juniors and Young Riders. Now regularly competing at 3* and 4* events, Ginny has recently acquired a new advanced level horse to join the seven eventers at her rural yard. Valentino Vollante (pictured), will accompany Ginny’s other top grey horse, Divilabit, in hopefully securing Ginny a place in the 2016 Olympics.

To ride at the Olympics would be a dream come true and a win at Badminton would be very special too, however, Ginny warns it’s not as easy as she makes it look.“It’s all worth it when it goes well, but horses are horses and top level eventing requires hard work and determination” says Ginny.

Ginny trains regularly at Lyneham Heath Farm and Washbrook Farm. Show jumping in the winter months also keeps her horses in peak condition and helps maintain their schooling, and is particularly beneficial for the younger horses.

Kärcher’s new partnership with Ginny is the first time the Banbury based business has been involved with an equestrian sport in the UK. Kärcher have a fantastic range of products to help you easily keep your yard and horse box or trailer clean, safe and tidy. The Kärcher Professional High-Pressure Cleaners are Ginny’s favourite.
