Bedmax support Newmarket Heath Ride for third year

Racing Welfare is now accepting entries for the 2022 Bedmax Newmarket Heath Ride. The popular event takes place on Sunday 4 September and is sponsored for a third consecutive year by Bedmax, producers of shavings purpose made for horses, who have continued their commitment to racing in Newmarket and beyond.

The Bedmax Newmarket Heath Ride offers horse riders a unique opportunity to ride across world-famous turf – taking in the sights across the training grounds, whilst also raising money to support racing’s workforce. Thanks are extended to The National Stud and Jockey Club Estates for their support and kind permission.

Not only have Bedmax committed to headline sponsorship of this enjoyable event for a third year, the company’s support of Racing Welfare’s fundraising events also extends to Malton Open Day, held the following Sunday 11 September. Visitors to the North Yorkshire open stables event will be seated around the main arena on donated bales of Bedmax shavings.

Bedmax Managing Director, Tim Smalley, said: “Everyone who works with racehorses has a deep commitment to their welfare. We share the same commitment, so it’s a great pleasure to support these events and contribute something to the welfare of the people who care for these wonderful horses in Britain’s unique world class racing centres.”

Bedmax shavings are designed to combat the major equine health and wellbeing issues associated with stabled horses and, for horses to perform at the top of their game, the stable environment is of utmost importance. As well as being triple-dust-extracted and naturally antibacterial, Bedmax was also the first equine bedding company to be awarded BETA NOPS accreditation earlier this year which ensures that all products across their range are free of any naturally occurring prohibited substances.

Dawn Goodfellow, Racing Welfare Chief Executive, said: “We are so delighted to be partnering with Bedmax to deliver the Newmarket Heath Ride for a third year. Their support of Racing Welfare and the racing community is gratefully received. The Newmarket Heath Ride provides an amazing opportunity for riders to experience the thrill of riding on Newmarket’s hallowed training grounds, for which we extend huge thanks to the National Stud and Jockey Club Estates.”
