Team Polo Finishes Second

Equestrian Relief raising funds for NHS

Over the course of one week (6 – 13 April) Equestrian Relief saw equestrian stars and celebrities competing in a series of challenges with the goal of raising £100,000 for the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal Fund – click here to donate now. There is also time to make your own bid in the online auction (click here) where a collection of equestrian lots are still available until the auction ends tonight at 8pm. 
There were seven equestrian teams overall from five equestrian disciplines, with Team Polo represented by Jack Richardson, Hazel Jackson-Gaona, Tom Morley, Mark Tomlinson and Malcolm Borwick. Over the course of the week each team took on five challenges (On the Gallops, Plankety Plank, Horse Drawn, Showstopper and Dark Horse) which were designed to test the physical, creative and artistic skills of the riders. Overall Team Polo came second with 46 points, with Team Eventing taking first place with 64 points, Team Show Jumping South and Team Presenters in joint third with 42 points. 
Individually, Team Polo also did well: Jack Richardson came third in the 5km run “On the Gallops” with a time of 20 minutes 1 second, Malcolm Borwick came third in the Plankety Plank with a time of 7 minutes 31 seconds and just lost out on a podium position in the Bake Off Easter Showstopper by one point, Jack Richardson and Tom Morley’s Team Polo Spoof Rap duet secured them a joint second place in the Dark Horse challenge – if you haven’t yet seen their rap, click here to see more!
