Hoys_RGB_new_logo.jpgHorse of the Year Show (HOYS) is thrilled to announce that Irish-based International feed company Connolly’s RED MILLS will be sponsoring the Senior Newcomers Championship at HOYS this year.

The Senior Newcomers Championship has been a notable favourite at HOYS for many competitors as it provides an exclusive platform for developing combinations to progress into future jumping stars.

This year it is Connolly’s RED MILLS who are the title sponsor and kindly offering their support to the horses and riders competing. 

Connolly's RED MILLS is a family owned company established in 1908 in Co. Kilkenny, Ireland. Today the company exports to over 50 countries worldwide. Many of the world’s most successful high performance horses are fed on Connolly’s RED MILLS. The combination of their premium quality performance feeds, innovative manufacturing processes and world class nutritional expertise offers competitors the support they need to compete at the highest level.

In addition to sponsoring at HOYS this year Connolly’s RED MILLS will also be aligning with British Showjumping to sponsor the entire Senior Newcomers Series in 2016. The Senior Newcomers Series consists of 2 rounds throughout the year and culminates in a Championship which takes place at HOYS.

Derek Fallon, UK Business Development Manager with Connolly’s RED MILLS, remarked “We are very excited to announce our sponsorship of the Senior Newcomers Series. This class provides an excellent platform for the development of young horses and show jumping’s future stars. This sponsorship is part of the on-going investment the company is making in the UK and we are delighted to have this opportunity to show our support. We are looking forward to a great event at HOYS and wish all the competitors the best of luck in the competition”.

Catherine Rudenko, Equine Nutritionist with Connolly’s RED MILLS, commented “The sponsorship of this series coincides with the launch of our new Sport Horse range. Our team are all committed to the equine industry, and look forward to meeting fellow competitors across the country this coming season.”

Helena Pettit, managing director of Grandstand Media, says: “We are delighted to welcome Connolly’s RED MILLS as sponsors to Horse of the Year Show. It is very exciting to have such a renowned company extend their support to one of our classes”.
