Hoys_RGB_new_logo.jpgHorse of the Year Show (HOYS) are pleased to welcome a new addition to the list of sponsors for HOYS 2015, the Colosso Family.

The Colosso Family will be sponsoring the Riding Horse of the Year Championship, including the small and large riding horse divisions. Although this is the first year the Colosso Family are official sponsors at HOYS, they are well versed in top class equestrian competition.

The Colosso Family own a string of high quality coloured horses, many of which qualify for HOYS every year. In 2012 the Colosso Family’s horse Sheer Impulse was the winner of the Coloured Ridden Non-Native Horse of the Year sponsored by CHAPS (UK), followed by a win again in 2014. Sheer Impulse was also crowned Coloured Horse of the Year Champion with Wayne Thorneycroft at last year’s Show.

The opportunity to be involved with HOYS is a greatly anticipated opportunity for the Colosso Family “We are really pleased to be able to sponsor the riding horse class and championship at such a prestigious show, and so looking forward to seeing beautiful horses compete for this converted title” says Kim Colosso.

Helena Pettit, managing director of Grandstand Media Ltd. says “We are delighted to welcome the Colosso family to the fold of HOYS sponsors. The Riding Horse of the Year Championship has been a long standing fixture at Horse of the Year Show and it is fantastic to have the Colosso family supporting the Championship this year”.

The Colosso Family Small Riding Horse of the Year, The Colosso Family Large Riding Horse of the Year and The Colosso Family Riding Horse of the Year Championship will all take place on Sunday 11th October at Birmingham’s NEC.
