Further, Agria will be title sponsor of Hickstead’s Ring Five for the Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting, the Longines Royal International Horse Show and the All England September Tour.



Vicki Wentworth, MD of Agria UK and herself a keen competitive rider (pictured above), says: “We are very proud to be supporting this series of international jumping classes and showing supreme championships, to help spread word about our game-changing horse insurance at Hickstead, one of the world’s great showgrounds.

“Agria’s ethos is all about supporting horses working at every level, for life, and helping them to achieve their goals with the reassurance that vet bills can be covered year after year for recurring injuries or repetitive or chronic conditions. Nothing could be more exciting than doing that at two of the greatest jumping and showing shows in the UK. We look forward to supporting Hickstead, and the riders from across the UK lucky enough to be there among the best in the World.”



One rider who is aiming to compete at Hickstead is Agria-sponsored, Joe Stockdale (pictured above) who added: “I’m delighted Agria, is extending its support for showjumping - and showing - at Hickstead. With their focus on lifetime cover and animal welfare, this feels an ideal fit for a family-run showground like Hickstead that hosts competitions for horses at so many levels, and across a range of disciplines. I always look forward to Hickstead.”

Lizzie Bunn, Director of Hickstead, says: “We would like to extend a warm welcome to Agria Pet Insurance. Sponsors are vital to the successful running of our showground, and we are very grateful to Agria for their support. The Hickstead team is excited to be embarking on what will hopefully be a long and successful collaboration.”
