Rotterdam Topsport to be a Day Sponsorship
Rotterdam/Hickstead, June 20th, 2020 - Equine America is the title sponsor for the Rotterdam Hickstead Grand Prix Challenge, which will be broadcast on July 18th -19th. Equine America provides a range of pioneering and tailored Equine supplements and external applications, that have been formulated to help achieve optimum health and performance. Furthermore, Rotterdam Topsport is one of the official Day sponsors of the international online GP dressage event, now officially named the Equine America Rotterdam Hickstead Grand Prix Challenge. Horse and Country TV has committed to co-broadcasting the Challenge via their worldwide channels on July 18 - 19.
"This is a great initiative from CHIO Rotterdam and Dressage at Hickstead allowing International Grand Prix Dressage riders and their horses to work towards a specific measuring moment during these challenging times. Of course, riders have continued their training and taken the best care of their horses but we believe it motivates them when there is a point where you can get confirmation that you're on the right track", says Lee Middleton, Managing Director of Equine America. "And of course, we cannot wait to see the riders perform at the event."
Peter Blangé, director at Rotterdam Topsport, is excited that this event will present topsports this summer. "This year is challenging for Rotterdam as the City of Sports. Events like CHIO Rotterdam and our local sportsmen make people in Rotterdam proud and the city attractive to visitors, business and inhabitants. We strongly support this online initiative to show the world that Rotterdam and the eldest international topsport event will Make it Happen, even during this COVID-19 pandemic.
A second Day sponsor may be announced shortly. The complete line up of riders is now available on the eventwebsite rotterdamhicksteadgpc.com. The broadcasting with live commentary by Stephen Clarke and Mariëtte Sanders-van Gansewinkel on July 18 - 19 will be on this channel als well as on Horse & Country TV channels and websites worldwide. The tests will be filmed prior without public. More details on programme, starting orders, etc. will follow (#rotterdamhicksteadgpc).
About Dressage at Hickstead
Dressage at Hickstead – the UK’s premier dressage venue and home to the CDI3*. Dressage at Hickstead was founded in 1993 after four years of preparatory work by International dressage rider Dane Rawlins and a small group of financial supporters, on a site of land at Douglas Bunn’s All England Jumping Course in Hickstead, West Sussex. Its first year coincided with the demise of the fantastic Goodwood dressage venue. Within the space of only a few years it grew to become Britain’s premier venue for both International and National dressage competitions.
