I am a proud supporter and sponsor of Great British event rider Wills Oakden. I have been photographing Wills and following his progress since 2012 before becoming an official sponsor in 2014. 

Wills is one of Scotland’s leading event riders and has represented Great Britain on a number of occasions, most recently at the 2018 Nations Cup Leg in Strzegom, Poland where the team won Silver and Wills won individual Bronze with Cooley Ramiro. 2018 also saw Wills debut in the Event Rider Masters Series where he finished 8th at Chatsworth International Horse Trials and 11th in the series finale at Blair Castle International Horse Trials.

2019 proved to be an incredible year for Wills, riding a double clear on his Badminton debut with (Balcarres Eventing Syndicate's) Cooley Ramiro, finishing in 25th place. Who knows where 2020 will take him!
