Polly Products would like to publicly congratulate its sponsored rider William Funnell following his third Hickstead Derby win.

Last into the international arena on Cortaflex Mondriaan, William achieved the only clear round of the day and the first clear round in the Hickstead Derby for five years.

William and Pippa Funnell are both sponsored by Polly Products with their Funnell Rug Range and Horse and Leather Care Range. The newly launched William Funnell Competition Clothing Range from Tagg Clothing, designed and worn by William, could have had no better promotional platform than in the Hickstead arena.

Tom Eastwood, managing directory of Polly Products, said: “We are all delighted for William. He had set his sights on this prize with Mondriaan again this year and to win with the only clear round and the first one for five years belies the pressure he must have been under.

“The whole company is behind him all the way. We are sponsoring the winning rugs at both 2009 Hickstead events and one of the rings as well.”
