Kubota's #DaywithHoy competition winner, Cath Hall, enjoyed a day of training with Olympic equestrian champion, Andrew Hoy at his Leicestershire stables, as part of the on-going partnership between the machinery manufacturer and the sportsman.
Cath won the competition following her entry when visiting Badminton Horse Trials and was treated to a day at Somerby Stables with Kubota brand ambassador Andrew, where she was given advice on how to enhance and improve her daily training to make a successful step up to the next competition level
Speaking of the day, Cath commented: "It's fantastic to have won the competition and have the opportunity to train with a master. I've seen Andrew competing many times, he's really efficient at what he does so it was fantastic to have someone to guide me, tweak my techniques and remind me how to successfully put sequences together. Hopefully now my horse and I can tackle the novice level confidently."
Andrew said: "I'm thrilled to be brand ambassador for Kubota and have the opportunity to help someone like Cath improve her skills.
"I first became aware of Kubota in 1978 when I moved to the United Kingdom. I use a M6060 machine here at the stables and I absolutely love it. It's a fantastic machine for levelling the arenas, preparing surfaces for work and also, the bucket at the front is ideal for carrying out heaping work. Kubota machinery can certainly help with the operation of any equestrian facility; my tractor is a joy to drive and I'd recommend it to anyone."
Kubota launched its second competition in partnership with Andrew, which took take place at the Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials in September. The lucky enjoyed a course walk with Andrew.
