‘This is an ongoing partnership that sees Zara attend events every year to present gifts to the winners,’ Mischa Jolin, Managing Director of Influencer, PR and Branding agency, Edencancan previously told Femail.

‘She is an integral part of the brand which empowers women within the equestrian field. I would anticipate this partnership is worth circa £125k per year.’
