To celebrate the launch of a new partnership between The Stafford Hotel and The Riding Club London – a Private Members Club and concierge service – an exclusive equestrian themed party will be held in support of World Horse Welfare on 14th November, where guests can enjoy cocktails and canapés from 7pm, in the hotel’s historic courtyard, in St James’ Place.
The event, held in support of World Horse Welfare will be a celebration of the equestrian success of 2012 – a fitting way to honour the bravery and skill of our horses during the Olympic and Paralympic games. With members of the King’s Troop, Olympic medalists such as Natasha Baker who achieved a Double Gold in Paralympic Dressage at London 2012 in attendance, amongst other special guests, the evening is set to cap what has been a remarkable year for horses in sport.
The official welfare arm of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) and advisory to the British Horse Racing Authority (BHA), World Horse Welfare work hard throughout the year to rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected horses in the UK, re-homing more horses than any other organisation. Through their targeted training programmes, the charity supports horses, their owners and dependents overseas.
“As we celebrate 85 years of helping horses, we are proud of our unique position in promoting the responsible use of horses in sport,” says director of fundraising, John Blake, “we are honoured to be supported by The Riding Club London through The Riders’ Party.”
The evening will be a great way to support the charity, for every ticket sold a donation will be made to World Horse Welfare. There will also be an auction with exciting lots including two places on the charity’s challenge ride to the Moolmanshoek Valley in South Africa, on 10th-17th October 2013.
All guests are welcome to attend the after-party which will be held at the glamorous 2&8 Club at Morton’s, Mayfair. Do not miss this exciting and unique opportunity to celebrate Great British equestrian talent, whilst supporting a worthy cause.
