Hickstead teams up with Airowear

Following the release of the innovative new body protector, The Hickstead, the All England Jumping Course is pleased to announce that Airowear is the new sponsors of ring 4 at the showground. Ring 4 was completely renovated last year to provide riders with an all-weather surface alongside some permanent fences, including its own devil's dyke, steps and water splash. It proved an instant hit with riders, with entries in the national classes soaring to record levels in 2013.

Airowear, which joined forces with Charles Owen in 2012, will be exhibiting in the shopping village at Hickstead's two international fixtures - the Equestrian.com Hickstead Derby Meeting (25th - 29th June) and the Longines Royal International Horse Show (29th July - 3rd August). They will also be offering a Hickstead body protector to each of the three individual champions at the Hurst College National Schools & Pony Club Championships (7 August).

The Hickstead is the first body protector to be styled specifically for showjumpers. It is lightweight with discreet tailoring, which makes it inconspicuous when worn over a black show jacket.

"We're delighted to welcome Airowear as a new sponsor," says Hickstead director Lizzie Bunn. "We know that our competitors want to look smart in the ring, and this new body protector helps them to be safer in the saddle and perform at their maximum ability, without compromising on style."

The Hickstead won an innovation award at the BETA trade fair 2013.

"The new Hickstead body protector perfectly combines safety with a design pleasing to the competitive needs of showjumpers," said Charles Owen managing director, Roy Burek. "The Hickstead has been designed with a sophisticated fit and streamlined appearance while still incorporating all of the advanced safety and innovation for which Charles Owen and Airowear are known."
