The Charles Owen
Through the Decades Competition is now closed,
and we have a winner!

Rebecca Markillie has won!!



The winning picture is from Rebecca Markillie, she is riding her horse Gem at Towerlands EC in Essex at their first BSJA Show. Rebecca later explained that she was bought her Charles Owen hat for her birthday, so that she may start affiliated showjumping, and she wanted a smart one so she didn't look or feel out of place.
Rebecca has owned Gem for 18 years and at 24 Gem still enjoys jumping and going out to try new things, just recently Rebecca took Gem hunting for the first time.


Rebecca and Gem jumping more recently.


Rebecca and Gem's picture has appeared in Horse & Hound magazine (Issue 26/01/12, pg 57). Rebecca has also won a custom Charles Owen helmet of her choice! Congratulations Rebecca!!
