FOXDENTON GIN REWARDS NEW "RIDE OF THE WEEK"
Foxdenton Gin, the specialist producer of English fruit liqueurs and gins, has partnered with British Team Chasing to create a new award for the outstanding performance by a rider at each of the new season of Team Chases affiliated to British Team Chasing. The Award, a bottle of the newly created Dutch Courage, will be presented at the end of each day’s Team Chasing to the adult individual whose riding performance has impressed the Ground Jury the most in any Open or Intermediate class, with the first award presented at the Cotswold Team Chase on October 25th.
In addition, Foxdenton Gin has created a bespoke gin to be marketed through British Team Chasing, and a royalty from each sale will benefit the sport.
“We’re delighted to team up with British Team Chasing,” reports Nick Foxdenton. “Our range of gins are very popular amongst hunting and shooting folk, and we think our new partnership with British Team Chasing will add value to both of us. Certainly, you need some Dutch Courage to jump fences at speed!”
You’ll find the weekly Ride of the Week award reported here after each event.

FOXDENTON GIN "RIDE OF THE WEEK"
The Foxdenton Dutch Courage bottle at the Skinner’s Pet Foods National Championship went to Harry McLeod of the Cunning Stunts.
In his first season of open team chases and on his championship debut, Harry experienced the Stunts’ own brand of chaos - by fence six, the lead horse was nowhere to be seen and the second horse had just ducked out, leaving him in the hot seat. Undeterred, he and Honey galloped on, only to narrowly avoid coming to grief himself at the five bar gate ahead of the massive Champagne hedge, which according to the commentator he approached dangling off the side of the horse. Amazingly all four Stunts were back in the middle of their saddles by the home turn and rode a rousing finish to take sixth place, their best result for some years. True Dutch Courage.
