Why sponsor us?

    • Horse Trials is a sport that appeals to sponsors wishing to engage with an affluent market, in a  traditional outdoor parkland type setting, where opportunities for regular access to the sport throughout season will be effective in delivering branding, promotions, advertising, product demonstrations and hospitality.
    • Annually we reach some 4,000 owners of horses and around 20,000 of their connections.  Our output of media releases to specialist equestrian publications and the constant use of our own branded social and web media ensures our events are well followed and attended.
    • There are 2 million annual hits on this website and a monthly average Facebook reach of 25,000.  Twitter and Instagram followers are increasing and we aim to attract a greater number of Lake District visitors along with their families in 2019.
    • We often see Olympic and European champions with their younger horses competing at our events – the action is never far away and spectators can enjoy the spectacle all the more for it.

Sponsorship may be taken either per event, per class or, per cross country (or show jump) fence.  Annual Equestrian Awards are also available.
