Virbac to sponsor the Pony Club Mounted Games at HOYS

Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) is thrilled to announce that leading global veterinary pharmaceutical company Virbac will sponsor The Pony Club Mounted Games at HOYS 2011 under their Equimax brand.

Virbac are the manufacturers of leading equine wormer brand Equimax, which is authorised for use to treat roundworms, all three species of tapeworm and bots in a single dose.

The Pony Club Mounted Games is one of the most popular and enduring entertainment displays at HOYS and will feature throughout the week. The spectacle sees six teams taking part in a range of activities and by the time they get to the show the finalists will have all, through immense skill and determination, fought off over 250 other clubs nationwide to qualify. The Prince Philip Cup started in 1957 with the aim to encourage a higher standard of riding throughout The Pony Club and to stimulate among the future generation a greater interest in riding as a sport and as a recreation.

Tom Blacklock, Equine Product Manager of Virbac Animal Health, said: "Virbac are delighted to be involved with The Pony Club Mounted Games at Horse of the Year Show. The Pony Club has a great history in promoting education in horse welfare and sportsmanship and the Mounted Games have always been a firm favourite of the crowd at the show. We are proud that through the sponsorship of the Mounted Games with our leading equine wormer brand Equimax, we can be part of this great tradition."

The 2011 Horse of the Year Show promises to be another exceptional event not to be missed! Alongside The Equimax Pony Club Mounted Games for the Prince Philip Cup, it will host the finals of the most highly regarded Showing and Show Jumping championships, alongside an exciting line-up of equestrian entertainment. Other highlights will include the Musical Ride of the Household Cavalry, appearing by permission of the CO HCMR, the spellbinding Magali Delgado performing her skilled blend of dressage and artistry with her husband, Frédéric Pignon, and her beautiful Lusitano, Mandarin, Osborne Refrigerators Double Harness Scurry Racing, the Express Eventing Series Final, the new Think Like a Pony Interactive Feature Area and the famous HOYS Retail Village featuring hundreds of trade stands!
