Australian eventing superstar Ben Leahy is leaving behind sunny Australia to pursue his career on the European eventing circuit. Ben first had a taste of life in the UK when he spent six months training with International Event Rider, Harry Meade (son of three time Olympic Gold Medallist and two time World Champion, Richard Meade) and has now decided to make the move permanent.
Ben has a number of 2* and 3* wins under his belt as well as winning the Lakes and Craters (VIC) CIC 3* on Le Directeur (Ollie). Ben brings with him to England his trusty steed Le Directeur, who he purchased from WA event rider Sonja Johnson, to continue his campaign throughout 2014.
During his time at the Meade’s stables, Ben first discovered Blue Chip, he then set out to find Blue Chip when he returned to Australia and was delighted to find it was now available here. Paul and Anita (founders of Blue Chip Australia) were delighted to provide Ben with sponsorship to help further his eventing pursuits and Ollie thrived on Blue Chip Pro.
Blue Chip UK are pleased to announce that they will be continuing Ben’s sponsorship for the 2014 eventing season. Ben has a very bright future ahead of him and Blue Chip is looking forward to supporting him every step of the way.
“It’s extremely reassuring to know that my horses will be kept in the same world class condition as they were back home in Australia thanks to the continued support of Blue Chip Feed Ltd. With Blue Chip as part of their diet I am confident that I have left no stone unturned for them to operate at their athletic best.” Ben Leahy
