Lövsta Stud’s El Barone 111 and rider Malin Baryard Johnsson contribute SEK 150,000 to horse welfare via ReGive
ReGive is initiated by Lövsta Stuteri and Malin Baryard Johnsson, with the aim of contributing to organizations that focus on equine health and welfare. 10% of the prize money goes to ReGive.
In 2021, Malin and El Barone 111 among others placed in the five-star competitions of Valkenswaard, Barcelona and Brussels. In total, the suit could fetch almost SEK 150,000 in prize money. To give the project a head start, Antonia Axe, her son Johnson and Malin Baryard Johnsson decided to donate not just some, but all of the prize money. For 2021, SEK 150,000 will be donated to ReGive. The money goes to the organization Brooke´s Global Farriery Project, which works to increase knowledge about the importance of healthy hives. They also educate and train local marshals.
– “We started ReGive to express our great gratitude to the horses of the world who have given so much to people throughout history, joy, support, sustenance and even our sport. El Barone 111 and Malin represent the interaction and consensus that we admire. Brooke, which for so many years stood for the well-being of people and horses, is an activity that we have supported with great joy,” says Antonia Ax: son Johnson, owner of Lövsta Stuteri.
Malin Baryard Johnsson also supports the project:
– “We can offer our horses the best conditions, but there are many who do not have this possibility. Through ReGive, we can help improve the lives of brave, strong horses and their owners in vulnerable parts of the world. El Barone 111 and I are looking forward to competing at Stockholm Stadium during LGCT Stockholm & Stockholm Horse Week.
Money raised for ReGive will also go to the Brooke organization in 2022, which works to promote working conditions for horses, mules and donkeys in vulnerable parts of the world. Brooke helps 1.5 million equines in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East each year to have a better life. The organization was established in 1932 and is today the world’s largest welfare organization for working horses, donkeys and mules.
