Announcing our Supreme Champion!

Our Supreme Champion prize has been kindly donated by GeeGees Emporium.

Sarah, who is also a fosterer for Bransby horses has supplied an amazing hamper of products for our winner!

Sarah herself started riding at the age of 7. Many years on and Sarah now owns 4 horses, which includes gorgeous Bransby Joey, who was rescued by Bransby off the side of the road, only a few days old.

Sarah says: “Gee Gees was born out of my passion for horses. We sell online; offering a personal service. We also attend shows with our mobile shop. You may see us out and about around the county. If there’s something you need just get in touch and we’ll help you find it. We wanted to be able to give a little back to Bransby to say Thank you.”

And thank you Sarah!
