- DRESSAGE -
Andrew Gould is one of Great Britain’s leading Dressage riders and he is noted and respected by some of the most prominent figures within the sport as well as being in great demand as a trainer.
“I have found hats to be so uncomfortable, and one of the main issues is the sweating that invariably leads to the musty hat smell following you around. With riding so many horses daily, drybrow enables me to do so without the above recurring problem. I highly recommend, if not for hygienic purposes, just general comfort!”
Rose Hugh Smith is 16 years old. She was a member of the bronze medal pony team in Arezzo 2013 and reserve for ponies in 2014 and Juniors in 2015! She currently has two horses in training called Flo (Florentino) and DJ (Dutch Discovery) both of whom she has taught from Elementary level. Rose hopes to reach Prix St George by the end of 2016 with the ultimate aim of doing under 25 Grand Prix on DJ.
“Drybrow has now become an essential part of my everyday riding kit and has saved me from embarrassing red patches on my forehead. After taking my hat off I no longer feel sweaty or greasy all due to its impressive absorbing capabilities! I am extremely proud to be a sponsored rider and a part of such an amazing team.”

“Drybrow is a great product, new to equestrian sport. It does exactly what it is designed to do – keeping our hats and heads dry, preventing spots and protecting our hats from makeup. We both wear helmets for long periods of time when teaching and competing, so drybrow is really useful. We highly recommend Drybrow to everyone in the equestrian industry and to any other sport which requires head protection. We would both like to thank Drybrow once again for their continued support and we look forward working with them going forwards.”
Claire has been eventing and producing event horses in the UK for several years. Having grown up in Dubai she followed her eventing dream and moved to the UK, studying at Hartpury College and working on several yards, soon setting up by herself. Claire is currently based in Warwickshire with a lovely team of horses ranging from intro to Advanced.
“I am very excited to be involved with Drybrow as I feel it’s such an exciting product for any sport involving a helmet. I always suffered from a dry forehead which was easily irritated – since using Drybrow in all my hats I haven’t suffered at all. I will spend a lot of the winter months hunting, wearing my hat for 6 hours can’t be a good thing for hygiene! I am looking forward to continuing using Drybrow hunting, eventing and training at home.”
Miranda is a serious amateur event rider running her own livery yard in Leicestershire along side her competing. Prior to running her own yard she was a Police Officer for 19 years.
Miranda has 3 horses who she currently events, Coulston Topcat (TC) a 5 yr old Selle Francais gelding, Innovation K (Jimmy) a 10 yr old WB/ TB gelding and Sugar Hill (Sam) a 17 yr old TB gelding. She has high expectations of TC and Jimmy, both aiming for a qualification for the Mitsubishi Badminton Cup championships in 2017, whilst Sam will continue to compete at the larger International events where he excels over the bigger XC courses.
“I think the Drybrow hat liners are the most innovative and needed invention within the equestrian industry for years.
There is nothing worse than having to put on a soggy smelly riding hat when you ride more than one horse per day. With the liners this problem is gone. No more wet headbands. They also keep my special competition headgear clean, dry and fairly sweet smelling! I never ride without one in my hat.”
