“We are dedicated to supporting the equestrian world and are delighted to be able to offer our support to the British teams,” said Alison Andrew, marketing manager at Petplan.

“I hope that our involvement will help smooth the path to the podium and demonstrate Britain’s equestrian excellence in all disciplines.”

“We hope that Ontrack will encourage more people into equestrianism and give them an insight into the world of some of our top riders across all the different sports.”

“We are delighted to have the support of Petplan and their involvement is integral to making this project a success.”
