British Eventing in conjunction with the Organisers of Blair Castle and Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials are delighted to welcome Kent & Masters Saddle Makers as title sponsors of the BE Arena Eventing Championships in the series’ opening year.
Through running the Championships, BE is able to engage with both BE members and non-members taking part in competitions outside of the BE calendar. The Championships ultimately mean that more riders can aim for a place in a series culminating at some of the most prestigious locations Britain has to offer.
“We’re very proud to be able to support this exciting new series which will highlight a lot of great new talent in the sport we are so passionate about”, said Ben Roberts of Kent & Masters Saddle Makers.
Win a Kent & Masters saddle
In addition to providing invaluable support to the BE90 and BE100 level Arena Championships at both venues, the British saddler is also generously inviting each of the four winners to pick a bespoke saddle of their choice from the Kent & Masters range.
Director of Blair Castle International, Alec Lochore said: “I am delighted to be working with and promoting Kent & Masters a traditional British Saddle maker through their engagement with the British Eventing Arena Eventing Final – this is a really exciting competition for old and young, experience and amateur riders alike with great focus given the prestigious locations for the two finals.
“We look forwards to welcoming all the finalists to compete at this year’s FEI European Eventing Championships Blair Castle 2015.”
Mandy Hervieu, Event Director of Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials commented on the sponsorship: “Kent & Masters are perfect sponsors for this class with their quality range of saddles made to the highest standards which enable everyday riders, such as those who will have qualified for the Championships, to have a competition saddle.”
“The classes will be closely contested with such fantastic prizes on offer” she added.
