Pony Foxhunter welcomes brand new sponsor

Robinsons Equestrian are the latest sponsor to be signed up to support Horse of the Year Show 2021; taking on title sponsorship of one of the most iconic pony showjumping classes at the event.  Introduced to the timetable back in 1985, the Pony Foxhunter Championship will be named ‘Robinsons Equestrian Pony Foxhunter of the Year’; the class has and continues to play an important part in the transition from junior to senior showjumping.

Thousands of competitors set out each year for a place in the final at HOYS; the Robinsons Equestrian Pony Foxhunter is set to welcome 28 combinations into the Andrews Bowen International Arena, opening the evening performance on Friday 8th October.

Founded in Wigan in 1867, Robinsons is one of the oldest Equestrian retailers in the UK.  Their rich history along with access to some of the best products and fantastic customer service is what keeps customers loyal and coming back time and time again for all their equestrian essentials and special treats; this makes them an ideal partner for Horse of the Year Show.

 Harriet Billingham, Commercial Manager at Robinsons Equestrian commented: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Horse of the Year Show once again. As one of the premier events in the equestrian calendar, it’s something we and our customers look forward to year in year out. This year, sponsoring the Robinsons Equestrian Pony Foxhunter Championship is particularly exciting as it gives us the opportunity to say thank you and well done to the equestrian community during the challenging times we’ve seen over the past year.”

Event Director Emma Williams commented: “I am delighted to welcome Robinsons Equestrian as a new class sponsor for the show, having worked with them previously we know that they are passionate in supporting the equestrian industry.  Robinsons Equestrian are a company that so many of us have grown up with, they know the importance of offering quality products for both horse and rider and offer products for all ages and abilities.  We look forward to working with them as they support the prestigious Pony Foxhunter this year, a class that has played a part in the development of so many of the UK’s showjumpers.”
