OTI’s Equine Welfare Fund set to support the Stonewall Equestrian Championships

OTI is set to partner with the Thoroughbred Sport Horse Association (TSHA) at their Stonewall Autumn Carnival, a 4-day event that commences on Thursday.

OTI’s Equine Welfare Fund will be the naming sponsor of the 6 Bar event, which holds an attractive purse of $2,500. A jump also endorsed by OTI’s Equine Welfare Fund will feature throughout the championships and will reside at Stonewall Equestrian following this weekend’s competition.

“The TSHA does a terrific job in establishing and funding events for retired racehorses. Their initiatives across the country have been instrumental in creating opportunity and demand for thoroughbreds in their lives post-racing.” said Campbell Wansbrough, OTI’s Equine Welfare Coordinator.

“Through the backing of our Equine Welfare Fund, we are thrilled to kick-off an association with the TSHA in Friday’s 6 Bar event.” he added.

Stonewall’s Autumn Carnival will be held in memory of Heathfield Rawson-Harris, who sadly passed away earlier this month. Heath was the creator and visionary behind Stonewall’s showgrounds. His wife Krissy, the director of the TSHA, has endeavoured to follow Heath’s directions and dreams to see it to completion.
