Hoys_RGB_new_logo.jpgIt is with great pleasure that Horse of the Year Show announce the continued sponsorship from Virbac at “The World’s Most Famous Horse Show”. Virbac will once again be supporting the Pony Club Mounted Games and the Cob of the Year Championship at the 2015 Show. The veterinary product leader has signed a 3 year sponsorship agreement with HOYS which, at the end of the agreement, will take Virbac into their 10th year of sponsorship.

Virbac has previously sponsored a variety of events at HOYS including displays, Cob of the Year Championship and the Pony Club Mounted Games since 2012. Virbac has been great supporters of HOYS for many years and this newest agreement will culminate in an incredible 10 year partnership.

Virbac was founded in 1968 and is the number one dedicated veterinary pharmaceutical company in the world. Unlike many other pharmaceutical companies in the animal health market, Virbac has ground-breaking research facilities devoted exclusively to veterinary medicine only.

In the UK, Virbac supplies a constantly expanding portfolio of small animal, equine and livestock products. Its wide range of vaccines and medicines are used in prevention and treatment of the main pathologies seen in practice, plus specialist products that demonstrate the innovative approach to Virbac’s product development.

Dr Rick Manlove, Director for the Large Animal Business Unit says: “Virbac is pleased to announce its continued support of the Pony Club Mounted Games at Horse of the Year Show.

The Pony Club has a great history of promoting education in horse welfare and sportsmanship, and together with Virbac’s 3D Worming approach, guides and informs the next generation of horse owners and professionals. The Mounted Games are a firm favourite with the crowd at the show and we are proud that through our sponsorship, our 3D Worming approach is part of this great tradition”.

Helena Pettit, managing director of Grandstand Media Ltd. said: “We are very excited to continue working with Virbac. Virbac has been a consistent and generous sponsor for many years and have offered support to a wide variety of classes at HOYS over that time. It is very exciting that the culmination of this latest agreement will result in a milestone achievement of 10 years of sponsorship”.

The Virbac 3D Worming Lightweight Cob of the Year, Virbac 3D Worming Heavyweight Cob of the Year and Virbac 3D Worming Cob of the Year Championship will take place on Saturday 10th October. The Virbac 3D Worming Pony Club Mounted Games will take place during the daytime and evening performances in the Andrews Bowen International Arena throughout the week at HOYS.
