- Riding Holidays
- Livery Yard
- All-weather canter track (2018)

Our weekly shows will regularly attract both amateur and professional riders from the Isle of Wight, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Sussex and surrounding areas. The professional rider visitors, will be accompanied to shows by the horses’ owners or sponsors, often business owners themselves.
We will aim to meet target attendances at our prestigious show jumping competitions with up to 200 starters, with competitors bringing many friends and family to the events.
Our audiences will include those on riding holidays staying in our on-site brand new 2, 3 and 4-bedroom self-catering complex for couples, families, groups, schools, riding clubs and non-horse riding guests too.
Our on-site Riding School with an extensive range of services will attract many Island residents from children’s ‘own a pony’ parties, kid’s clubs and summer camps to group adult lessons.
Delivering your brand communication
We will produce and distribute 4,000 – 5,000 Dressage and Show Jumping schedules per season.
Rosettes awarded will feature your logo and/or wording of your choice and will be produced in your brand colours. If sponsoring a series, this would include championship sashes or trophies for the finalists.
Your sponsored classes will feature your company name and details, and depending upon requirements can include an additional advertisement and/or logo on the front cover of the schedules.
All results will be listed on our website with your company name/brand alongside and a reciprocal link to your website, in local equestrian magazines and also in the national publication Horse & Hound. Many of the publications place the results on their websites and whenever mentioned, your class would be prefixed with your company name.
At the shows, your company banner (provided by yourselves) will be displayed in the main competition arena and the commentator will announce your company profile. We will also display literature at the show secretary’s box or provide space for your trade stand if required. Corporate hospitality can also be arranged in advance.
We also offer a sponsored show jump in our main arenas. This will be designed to your business’s specific requirements, displaying your logo and brand colours.
Sponsorship packages are flexible and can be tailored to meet your own individual requirements and will help towards the prize fund and running costs for the relevant class or series of classes.
You may select different levels of sponsorship, each with their own benefits, sponsoring a single prestigious class at the annual Premier Show, or a series of classes for our regular competitors over a 6-month season, culminating with your own championship show.
You may also be interested in advertising on an adverting board within the complex. These can be placed in the indoor (2018) and/or outdoor arena, purchasing the board itself followed by a small monthly fee to advertise your business to the wide ranging and extensive audience of those on holiday on the Isle of Wight and local Island Residents.
We look forward to hearing from you.
