Yorkshire-based building company Eric Bradley Construction Ltd will sponsor the FEI European Pony Championships 2010 at Bishop Burton College (28 July-1 August).

The company has been associated with the college since the 1960s and sponsors the Bishop Burton College Horse Trials.

Managing director Eric Bradley said: “We built many of the college’s agricultural buildings, as well as two indoor riding schools and were involved in the development and construction of the pig unit and more recently, the outdoor animal management centre.

“The championships will provide us with the opportunity to demonstrate our appreciation for the support the college has shown us over the years and to raise the profile of our own business.”

Bishop Burton College principal and competition president Jeanette Dawson said: “We are hoping to attract a large number of spectators to the event from across Europe, as well as competitors, officials and their entourages so the promotional opportunities this prestigious competitionpresents for businesses are extensive.”

Sponsorship packages are still available for the FEI European Pony Championships and interested parties should contact Clare Garrick on 01964 553053.

The event will also feature a large retail village and space is still available for companies who may wish to take a trade stand, although more than 60% of the space has already been allocated.
