Alltech Continue to Support Showing Classes at Hickstead
Leading global animal health and performance company, Alltech, has launched their third continuous year of support for a number of showing classes at the Hickstead Derby Meeting (22nd – 25th June).
Since the very first Hickstead Derby in 1961, many of the country’s top riders and producers have competed at Hickstead each June. Every fence in the course is a challenge, making the Hickstead Derby Meeting best known for its international showjumping classes. However, there is plenty of other choice available too, as the event offers something for nearly every rider.
There’s a plethora of showing classes, including the prestigious final of the Tattersalls/RoR Thoroughbred Show Horse Championship, plus there’s scurry and carriage driving. ‘Party night’ on Saturday evening is another focal point of the event, when everyone is encouraged to stay on at the showground for the captivating Celebrity Polo Match. The acclaimed Mini challenge should also be recognised as an important place to spot talent of the future.
For its third consecutive year, Alltech will be the official sponsor of the Small Hunter Championship, the Maxi Cob, Small and Large Riding Horse classes, the Supreme Hack Championship and Working Hunter class. All are held during Friday and Saturday of the show and many have a number of Horse of the Year Show qualifying tickets on offer.
Drawing the Hickstead Derby Meeting to a close on the Sunday, Alltech will be supporting the Show Hunter classes and the Supreme Hunter Championship, whilst also the official sponsors of the CHAPS (UK) in-hand classes.
Alltech’s UK Marketing Manager, Isla Baker-Browne said “Alltech is thrilled to be sponsoring the showing classes at Hickstead, such an iconic event, for its third year.
Alltech are always keen to support such prestigious equestrian events and our continuing involvement with this event is to be one of the highlights of the summer equestrian calendar.”
The Lifeforce Range of all-natural, daily digestive aid supplements from Alltech is designed to benefit horses of every stage of life, from breeding stock to pleasure and performance animals.
