A HOPE Valley sportswoman’s hunger for success has seen her secure sponsorship from a local horse feed company.

Up-and-coming event rider Becci Harrold is to receive support from Sheffield-based Blue Chip.

The 20-year-old, from Thornhill, near Bamford, impressed the company with her approach to obtaining sponsorship and her use of social media to help promote the Blue Chip brand.

Videos of her cross-country runs will be published on the Blue Chip website www.bluechipfeed.com.

The rider, whose two horses Candy Blue and My Harlequin Lady are currently competing at BE10, is aiming for the four-year-old and six-year-old Lycetts Young Horse Championships in 2012.

Becci joins the Blue Chip team of event riders which includes Olympic gold medallist and 2012 hopeful Tina Cook, Nicola Shepherd and Lisa Pilbeam.
