At only 9 years old, Ria Scott is amongst the youngest top class showjumpers in the county, having competed successfully at the Great Yorkshire Show as well as other premier venues alongside a host of leading riders. Talented and ambitious, Ria is dedicated to her sport & is determined to fulfil her dream of becoming part of the Great British Showjumping team when she is older.
Speaking on behalf of Keyflow, Managing Director, Cam Price said “We call our sponsored riders Key Riders and they are an integral part of the Keyflow brand. They consist of Tiny Clapham, Tim Price, Jesse Campbell, John Whitaker, Jack Whitaker, Sir Mark Todd, Jonelle Richards, Rebecca Howard, Michael Whitaker and the newly recruited Ria Scott.”
He continued “We look to our Key Riders to provide a continual presence of Keyflow and we work with them to ensure that our partnership remains fair and strong. Although young, Ria has shown talent early and most importantly has already demonstrated the right attributes to become an ambassador for the brand.”
Commenting on the sponsorship, 9 year old Ria said “It is a really exciting time for me right now. We have been using the Keyflow range since it's launch in this country and we trust their high quality feed products to deliver the best performance from our ponies. I feel really privileged to have become a Key Rider and look forward to working together with Keyflow ”.
Keyflow embraces the latest feed technologies and uses the best ingredients available in feeds formulated by some of the worlds most respected equine nutritionists. These scientists are at the forefront of research into what a horse needs nutritionally to be healthy and happy, grow optimally, behave sensibly and perform outstandingly. The Whitaker Brothers and Mark Todd have all been involved with Keyflow from the start and have given input every step of the way. They know exactly how a horse should look, feel, and perform.
