Nicholson’s Event Mount Honored by Barbury Horse TrialsBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · June 30, 2015
Event rider Andrew Nicholson has ridden Avebury, a 15-year-old homebred gray gelding, to three first-place finishes at the Barbury Horse Trials held in Wiltshire, England. This record has led organizers of the event to designate one of the signature fences on its cross-country course “The Avebury.”
Nicholson plans to ride in this year’s event, seeking a fourth victory with Avebury, who is owned by Rosemary Barlow. To keep the horse in top condition and provide the energy needed for training and competition efforts, Nicholson chooses grain products manufactured by Bluegrass Horse Feeds, a Team Member of Kentucky Equine Research.
