    Showing producer Katie Jerram is joining the feed supplement manufacturer’s team as one of its professional riders.

    Katie, an H&H columnist, has been producing show horses from her Essex base for more than 25 years and her clients include The Queen.

    “In the short time I have been using ReadySupp Grumpy Girth, Shine On, and Ultra Calm, the difference in conditon and temperament is astonishing,” said Katie.

    Liverpool International CSI4*

    A host of major sponsors have been revealed for Liverpool International CSI4* at the Echo Arena on 1-3 January.

    The title sponsor is online retailer Equestrian.com, who is also sponsoring the Liverpool International Grand Prix that will be held as part of the Sunday evening finale.

    Joining them is Equerry Horse Feeds, who will be sponsoring the 1.45m speed class, and supplement company Equitop Myoplast — sponsors of the puissance.

    Equestrian clothing brand Equiline has also been confirmed as the official clothing partner.

    “We are very fortunate to have so many fantastic brands and businesses supporting Liverpool International Horse Show 2016 and very much look forward to working alongside them to make the event a huge success,” said show president Nina Barbour.

    The event begins with a New Year’s Eve party on Liverpool’s waterfront before the jumping kicks-off on 1 January.

    Skinner’s Pet Foods

    The dog food manufacturer is sponsoring the British Team Chasing National Championships.
    The sponsorship deal includes this season and the next three years.

    The 2015/16 season began on 30 August with the Warwickshire hunt’s event at Southam and culminates at the final at the Heythrop team chase, Little Compton, in April.

    “We’re looking forward to meeting a great many of our customers and to enjoying some wonderful sport,” said the company’s sales and marketing director William Delamore.

    Griffin NuuMed

    The UK designer and producer of equestrian products is sponsoring H&H blogger and para dressage rider Suzanna Hext.

    Suzanna was competing at two-star level eventing before an accident while riding a young horse in 2012 left her with serious injuries.

    She won her first national para-title at the Para Restricted Summer Championships in Solihull in August, and earlier this month she was accepted onto the 2015-17 British Equestrian Federation Excel Talent Programme.

    “The sponsorship from NuuMed means a huge amount to me and will help with my Paralympic ambitions,” she said.

    Amlin Plus

    Dressage rider Lousie Robson has signed a sponsorship deal with the equine insurance specialists.

    Buckinghamshire-based Louise specialises in the retraining of ex-racehorses.

    Last month, she won the advanced medium freestyle at the Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) championships, Houghton Hall, aboard Quadrille — owned and bred by the Queen.

    She is also set to travel to Kentucky to compete in the Retired Racehorse Makeover Project (23-25 October) with ex-racer Tinchy Rider.

    “She has already seen much success on ex racehorses in the dressage ring here in the UK and Amlin Plus wish her the best of luck in Kentucky this October and for the coming year,” said David Ashby, the company’s managing director.
