Alltech to support showing classes at Hickstead...

The Hickstead Derby Meeting (25th - 28th June) is best known for its showjumping classes, but showing has been a major part of the fixture since the 1990s. This year, the show has been given a significant boost with the news that Alltech is to sponsor a number of its showing classes.

With a number of Horse of the Year Show qualifying tickets on offer and a wide range of classes, many of the country's top riders and producers head to Hickstead each June. As well as being one of the major fixtures in the summer showing calendar, the Derby meeting also gives horses and ponies invaluable experience of competing at the showground ahead of the Longines Royal International Horse Show, held at Hickstead just a few weeks later.

The Hickstead Derby Meeting has something for everyone who is a fan of equestrian sport. A total of nine rings are in use throughout the show, with senior national showjumping classes, showing, scurry and carriage driving, an exhibition polo match and of course, plenty of international showjumping on offer - culminating in the famous Derby on Sunday afternoon.

The new sponsorship will see Alltech provide support for an extensive range of showing classes during the Derby meeting.

These will include the Small Hunter Championship, the Maxi Cob, Small and Large Riding Horse classes and the Supreme Riding Horse Championship on the Friday. Alltech will also be the official sponsor of the Hack classes and the Supreme Hack Championship, as well as the Working Hunter class, which are all held on the Saturday of the show. Sunday, the final day of the Equestrian.comHickstead Derby Meeting, will see Alltech support the Show Hunter classes, the Supreme Hunter Championship, the Supreme Coloured Horse In Hand Championship and a series of Chaps UK coloured horse and pony qualifiers.

Alltech's UK Marketing Manager, Isla Baker-Browne said: "Alltech is delighted to form an association with Hickstead, which is such an institution of British equestrian sport. The sponsorship is a continuation of Alltech's support of top class British events."

Alltech has developed the Lifeforce Range of all-natural daily digestive aid supplements. These products are designed to benefit horses at every stage of life, from breeding stock to pleasure and performance animals.
