Horse of the Year Show welcomes new sponsor Catplant Group of Companies Ltd for the Show Hunter of the Year Championship

 Catplant Group of Companies Ltd has come on board as a new sponsor for Horse of the Year Show 2016. Catplant will sponsor the Show Hunter of the Year Championships including the Lightweight, Middleweight and Heavyweight sections.

The company, founded by Syd Boulton in 1980, specialises in plant hire and demolition, operating as one of the largest privately owned quarry and landfill sites from a 136 acre site in the north of England. Joining the family business in early 2000, Ronnie Harrod has taken on the responsibility of running the quarry and other companies on a daily basis.

Polly Coles, granddaughter of Catplant founder Syd Boulton, also works for the company and is no stranger to Horse of the Year Show having competed herself last year in the Heavyweight Cob and Middleweight Show Hunter classes.

The business operates a varied and extensive fleet of CAT machines in its operations which includes quarrying, recycling, plant hire, active waste landfill and waste to energy under its 2.5 megawatt electric generation scheme.  The company prides itself in operating some of the most modern techniques in the quarrying and landfill industry.

The ridden hunter classes are considered to be some of the most traditional since HOYS was established in 1949. At the end of each Ridden Show Hunter Section, Polly Coles will be offering a prize to the groom of the best turned out horse. The Catplant Group of Companies Ltd Show Hunter of the Year Championship will take place at Friday’s Show on 7th October.

The 2016 Horse of the Year Show will host the finals of the most highly regarded national Showing and Showjumping Championships, alongside International Showjumping and an exciting line-up of equestrian entertainment including the spectacular Gilles Fortier ‘Vulcanium – Dreams of Fire’ Performance, a Dressage Master Class sponsored by Arbonne with Olympian Carl Hester MBE the Virbac 3D Worming Pony Club Mounted Games for the Prince Philip Cup, Osborne Refrigerators Double Harness Scurry Championship, as well as the world famous HOYS Puissance. The popular Parelli Natural Horsemanship Interactive Feature Area will make a welcome return, and of course the famous HOYS Retail Village featuring hundreds of trade stands.
