Sponsorship at Calmsden Horse Trials and the benefits to your business.
Our aim is to offer local businesses who share our passion and interest in this sport a sponsorship package which is value for money and rewarding. We like to offer our sponsors the opportunity to promote their services or product over the two days. Our sponsors can enjoy the following:
Cross country fence or show jump – a fence is named after you or your business and is dressed to represent the services or product you offer.
Hospitality – we provide hospitality for sponsors and their clients. This includes a lovely hot lunch with wine and other refreshments and afternoon tea. This can all be enjoyed overlooking the showjumping arena. This has proven popular for entertaining clients and for rewarding loyal customers.
Banner and promotional material – this can be displayed around the event for both competitors and spectators to view.
Opportunity to meet potential new clients and also to network with existing clients. This is particularly the case with prize sponsorship where sponsors can actually present the prizes themselves. Providing vouchers as prizes encourages competitors into your business.
Calmsden Horse Trials 2017
THE EQUIFEAST CALMSDEN HORSE TRIALS July 29th and 30th 2017
This year we are delighted to be hosting a Horse Trials on the 29th and 30th July!
We are very fortunate to secure sponsorship from several local companies and organisations. In July 2017 we welcome back Equifeast who have supported the event for a number of years as our Title sponsor. Equifeast will also have a tradestand in the marquee near the scoreboards so do pop by and see them for any supplement advice.
After much success with the Bursary last year, Equifeast will be running it again for 2017!
The EquiFeast Development Bursary in association with Calmsden Horse trials, is aimed at riders competing at both Calmsden BE events this season who wish to receive support, training, advice and feed all for FREE!
We’re not looking for world-beaters, we want horse/rider combinations who would benefit from our support over the next 6 months and beyond. So if you meet the following requirements, fill in the online application form and we’ll see you at July Calmsden!

“Sponsoring Calmsden Horse Trials was EquiFeast’s first venture into event sponsorship. Jo, Georgina and the rest of the team at Calmsden made the whole experience enjoyable rather than stressful. From start to finish we were offered support and ideas of how to make the most of the opportunity they had given us. It is fantastic to be associated with such a professional and friendly event.” Equifeast
“This will be the third year mmm! Coffee have been invited to the Calmesden Horse Trails in Cirencester to provide high quality coffees and milkshakes at their British Eventing events. We have always found the team to be most welcoming and helpful when we are on site, ensuring our pitch is ready and we have access to everything we need. Their communications and applications processes are well coordinated and we always have confidence the event will be well attended and publicised. Really couldn’t ask more from an event organiser, we are delighted to be part of their events team!” Mmm Coffee
