Thrill-seeking equestriene Kristina Dalborg is among supporters of The Countryside Alliance Foundation  from across the East of England, Gloucestershire and the Thames Valley who will race on Newmarket’s famous July Course at the Countryside Race Day on Thursday 23 June.

The charity race is being run in aid of TCAF’s charities Fishing 4 Schools, Falconry for Schools and Casting for Recovery and will be contested over eight furlongs, on mostly borrowed horses.

Kristina is a keen team chaser and rides for the successful Fox Grant and Art Hotel teams. She hopes to ride her team chaser Dan Dare at Newmarket – however she also has two horses in training so has plenty of horsepower to choose from. A self-confessed speed merchant, she wishes the race was over hurdles! You can sponsor Kristina at

Kristina, who lives in Great Hormead said: “I live in a rural area and can see the important part country sports can play in the lives of young people. I am very supportive of The Countryside Alliance Foundation  projects which introduce the great outdoors to children who would not otherwise have the chance to experience them and want to raise as much money as possible for these great causes.”

Newmarket celebrates its 350th anniversary this year and there will be a full day’s racing following the charity race at 1pm.
