VALEGRO'S SHOE DELIVERED BY CARL HESTER EARNS TOP DOLLAR FOR EQUESTRIAN AID
Horses Daily--October 18, 2017--A silver-plated horseshoe that was once worn by Valegro has raised $5,000 for the Equestrian Aid Foundation at the New England Dressage Association (NEDA) Carl Hester Symposium (14-15 October) in New Gouchester, Maine. The bidding was hot between 3 women attending the clinic but in the end, Betsy Dangel from Newton Center, Mass got the final price in as the bidding closed Sunday afternoon.
As the top priced items were presented at the New England Dressage event on the closing day of a dynamic symposium. Hester admitted he took the shoe from Charlotte DuJardin’s desk. “We made 9 of these shoes (all with a silver coating) which have all been donated to charity. Now I have to tell Charlotte the last one went to America.”
