It is all change at Little Downham Horse Trials for 2016 as  Childeric Saddles are announced as the new title sponsor for the 2016 season.

This marks the French saddlery brand’s fifth year of sponsorship at Little Downham but with increased support for the venue, they are now the title sponsor for the 3 British Eventing calendar dates for 2016 (3rd-5th June, 23rd-24th July and 1st-3rd October).

Protexin Equine Premium also return for another season of sponsorship at Ely Eventing and will be running a BE90 and BE100 Accumulator across the 3 events for 2016. Following the success of their Novice Accumulator series in 2015, the leading probiotic brand, will be offering an end of season cash prize pot of £1400 to BE90 and BE100 competitors. Combinations of BE90 and BE100 horses and riders will accumulate points for top 10 placings across the 3 events and across all sections (Open and u18 included), with the combinations at the end of season being awarded the cash prizes.

Bailey’s Horse Feeds join the stable of sponsors as Novice season sponsors for 2016.

In a response to suggestions from grassroots competitors in the #twittereventing social network, Little Downham will be providing Double Clear rosettes, sponsored by Finer Stables, to those competitors going clear in both Show Jumping and Cross Country, in all classes from BE90 to Advanced to celebrate the achievement of a double clear. 


2016 will see three separate BE events at Ely Eventing Centre spanning 8 days of competition: 

Friday 3rd June – Sunday 5th June – BE90 to Advanced Saturday 23rd July – Sunday 24th July – BE80(T) to Novice

Saturday 23rd July – Sunday 24th July – BE80(T) to Novice

Saturday 1st October – Monday 3rd October – BE80(T) to Advanced inc the BE90 and BE100 Regional Finals.
