19th February - Dodson & Horrell Sign Up for the Third Year as Title Sponsors of the British Showjumping National Amateur & Veteran Championships

British Showjumping is extremely pleased to announce that Dodson & Horrell, Europe’s leading horse feed specialists, will be extending their sponsorship of the British Showjumping National Amateur & Veteran Championships into 2014. This announcement marks Dodson & Horrell’s third year of title sponsorship of these Championships, which will once again take place at Aintree Equestrian Centre during 19th – 23rd November 2014.

The National Amateur Championships give amateur riders and horses the opportunity to contest an end of year Amateur Final across four different heights – 0.85cm, 0.95cm, 1.05m and 1.10m. The National Veteran Riders Championships are spilt into minor and major categories.

Dodson & Horrell will be celebrating their 75th anniversary this year and the company prides itself on using the latest research and technology to formulate the highest quality horse feed. This title sponsorship gives Dodson & Horrell the opportunity to offer nutritional advice to showjumping members whilst exposing their products to a wider audience. Dodson & Horrell is the official supplier of nutrition to Equestrian Team GBR.

Sam Horrell, Marketing Director at Dodson & Horrell is delighted to support British Showjumping “These Championships allow us to reach a wider audience.  A large bulk of our feed is bought by the grass roots/amateur horse owner so we feel it is crucial to support them at many levels.  This competition gets us up close to some of our core users and gives us the opportunity to share essential nutritional advice and technical knowledge as well as inspiring the talents of horse and rider”.

Maria Clayton, Head of Communications at British Showjumping, further commented “We are thrilled to be announcing Dodson & Horrell’s continued supported of the National Amateur & Veteran Championships. The Dodson & Horrell name has become synonymous with these Championships and the series continues to grow in popularity, which further extends the reach to both competitors and spectators. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their commitment to this series."
