BHS teams up with Champion for 2015 National Riding Schools Championship

6 June 2014


Champion logoThe British Horse Society is delighted to announce that Champion will be sponsoring the 2015 National Riding Schools’ Championship. 

The Championship is a unique competition where no competitor owns their own horse, run by The British Horse Society to encourage non-horse owners to ride and compete.

The competition comprises a dressage test, showjumping course and a set of equine-related general knowledge questions and is enjoyed by riders of all ages, from nine to 60-plus. There is also a dressage-only Championship.

Rachael Hollely, Approvals Field Delivery Manager for the BHS said: "We are thrilled to be working with such a prestigious company where safety is at the forefront of their minds at all times.

"We hope that their support will help this fabulous Championship go from strength to strength.”

Champion is also excited by the new partnership, according to Sarah-Jane Fedarb, Managing Director, Champion Manufacturing.

"We are delighted to sponsor The British Horse Society Riding Schools’ Championship. These riding schools are where it all starts for many riders.

"BHS Approved Riding Schools are often where people put their feet in stirrups for the first time, where they first experience the wonderful relationship that can be built with a horse, and where a life-long passion can be ignited.

“Nothing is more important than safety when it comes to starting and progressing as a horse rider. Here at Champion we have been working tirelessly for more than 30 years to produce British-made products that allow riders to enjoy their horses while keeping them as safe as possible.

"We are looking forward to continuing such a tradition of innovation and our total dedication to rider safety for the next 30 years and beyond."

Qualifiers will start from 1 July nationwide, and those lucky enough to qualify will head to Warwickshire College for the final on 8 April 2015.
