Animalintex® Support New Leading Rider Award at The Eventing Spring Carnival


A new leading rider award will be presented at The Eventing Spring Carnival at Thoresby Park. Running 1st - 3rd April 2022, the event will host the Animalintex® Leading Rider Award, which will take place over three days and lead to a grand finale climax and prize giving.

Points will be awarded for the top six placings in all classes across the event with daily updates on the leaderboard as to which riders are out in front.

“We are delighted to be running this new innovation at The Eventing Spring Carnival. Without doubt the Animalintex® Leading Rider Award is a fantastic new idea for us and is a concept that has been very popular in the world of racing at the major festivals for many years.”
