Welcome to our Online Mid-Summer Show supporting The Marie Keating Foundation.  We are delighted to have teamed up with such an amazing charity for such an important cause.

From the mother who stands out in all weather watching her child ride in their weekly lesson, to Champion Jockey Rachael Blackmore who is at the top of her game.  From the Pony Club mum watching from the sidelines to the International Riders who represent their country & so many more women who are connected in so many different ways with the equine industry.

Out of all these wonderful women, one in every seven will develop breast cancer and I was one of them.

We launched CGP Equestrian in May 2020 and less than two months after that I was diagnosed with breast cancer and my life along with my children’s lives as we knew it was turned upside down, but here we are ten months later and I am cancer free.

The last ten months has not been easy at times, five months of it was spent having chemotherapy, this was followed by surgery in February and now I have daily radiation for four weeks, but I am lucky I have beaten it!  I am lucky that I found the lump, I am lucky that I convinced myself to call the doctor and I am lucky it was caught early.

This show is not only about raising money for The Marie Keating Foundation and the fantastic work they do, but to also raise awareness about breast cancer.    With so many women connected to the equestrian world, we hope this show will encourage at least one woman to check herself and be brave is she finds a lump.  From making the call to your doctor to learning of your diagnosis is probably the hardest part, but early detection is key to fighting and winning the battle against this disease.
