FOXDENTON GIN REWARDS NEW "RIDE OF THE WEEK"
Foxdenton Gin, the specialist producer of English fruit liqueurs and gins, has partnered with British Team Chasing to create a new award for the outstanding performance by a rider at each of the new season of Team Chases affiliated to British Team Chasing. The Award, a bottle of the newly created Dutch Courage, will be presented at the end of each day’s Team Chasing to the adult individual whose riding performance has impressed the Ground Jury the most in any Open or Intermediate class, with the first award presented at the Cotswold Team Chase on October 25th.
In addition, Foxdenton Gin has created a bespoke gin to be marketed through British Team Chasing, and a royalty from each sale will benefit the sport.
“We’re delighted to team up with British Team Chasing,” reports Nick Foxdenton. “Our range of gins are very popular amongst hunting and shooting folk, and we think our new partnership with British Team Chasing will add value to both of us. Certainly, you need some Dutch Courage to jump fences at speed!”
You’ll find the weekly Ride of the Week award reported here after each event.

FOXDENTON GIN "RIDE OF THE WEEK"
Essex & Suffolk Team Chase
The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery have made a welcome return to the circuit this autumn, and stepped up to intermediate for the first time.
Sergeant Lisa Leighton gave them a superb lead on Chablis, and caught the eye of the ground jury to win the Foxdenton Ride of the Week, sticking to her line even when the loose horse of an unseated team mate came upsides.
“It’s such fun to get out of London with the horses, all of which pull the gun carriages,” she explained. “They’ll be back on duty for Remembrance Day, so we’ve enjoyed giving them a change of scene over this lovely course.”
Team chasing on an Artillery horse - that’s true Dutch Courage.
