Irish feed manufacturer welcomes new rider
Global equine nutrition company Connolly’s RED MILLS has welcomed one of Britain’s best event riders, Alex Bragg, to its team of RED MILLS Riders.
Alex and wife Simmone together run Team Bragg, based in Somerset, UK. Having grown up with horses, Alex started his career as a farrier, only turning to riding and competing when Simmone became pregnant with their first daughter. He has since gone from strength to strength, competing in Nations Cup teams and competing at all four European 4* events within one calendar year.
After a successful 2018 season, finishing 12th in the British Eventing Top 100 Riders, Team Bragg is looking forward to an exciting 2019 season.
Alex said, “I am very proud to be feeding the yard Connolly’s RED MILLS and really looking forward to the 2019 season. The horses are all looking and feeling superb with comments from our vet and trainers noticing how well they look. Eventing is a really demanding discipline for the horses, so it’s vital that they receive the correct nutrition to help them throughout training and competing. I’m looking forward to working with the RED MILLS nutrition team to find out more about how I can best support my horses.”
UK Head of Equine, Louise Jones, added, “We’re delighted to welcome Team Bragg to the RED MILLS rider team. We are proud to support Alex and the team, providing him with the ultimate nutritional support to ensure his horses can perform to their best.”
Team Bragg is the latest signing to a strong squad of RED MILLS riders in eventing, including Tina Cook, Austin O’Connor, Sam Watson, Cathal Daniels, Beanie Sturgis, Lauren Blades and Charlotte Bacon.
