Second Badminton Title for William Fox-Pitt on Chilli Morning

A brilliant final round in the show jumping ring saw William Fox-Pitt take his second Badminton title on Sunday. We were gripped watching his calm approach to the jumps, and like thousands more, the team at Equine Rescue Services were willing Chilli Morning over each jump with bated breath. In true magnanimous style: “It’s Chilli Morning who deserves it…” says Mr F-P, but we think the jockey deserves a fair bit of praise too. Uncountable hours of hard work and commitment at the stables; highly talented guidance during the three gruelling events; and not least, just having the vehicles to safely transport the horse. It’s a privilege for us to be a part of the support that goes into this winning team and our congratulations go out to William Fox-Pitt and all at team Chilli Morning!
“My horses are valuable animals and I wouldn’t consider travelling without the backup that we know you provide.” William Fox-Pitt
