This is due to our continuous innovative projects, improved facilities and the support of our loyal patrons. We have worked and continue to work with the equestrian industry to progress with the times.”

“This year the show is delighted to be hosting the final of the Bet Show Jumping Live Speed Championships and we are very grateful for the support we have from our lead sponsor Devenish. Last year this competition brought a new dimension to show jumping  through the live betting. In a bid to bring more people into the sport, we have a range of sponsorship packages and this year we are introducing a new package which will allow companies and equestrian supporters to become involved for an affordable price. This package will allow sponsors to entertain guests at the ringside” he added.
