New sponsor for European eventing gold medallist

Horse feed manufacturer Dodson & Horrell has signed up seven-time European eventing gold medallist Laura Collett to join its sponsorship team.

Laura's success in the pony, junior and young rider teams with Noble Springbok and Rayef led to being selected as a reserve for Team GB's London 2012 Olympic eventing team.

The company has a long history of support in equestrian sports across the levels, from its sponsorship of the Riding Club and Pony Club Eventer Challenge at Blenheim Horse Trials to its ongoing sponsorship of the Veteran Horse Society, the Bramham Hunter Show, British Dressage and British Showjumping.

Dodson & Horrell is continuing its 26 year support of the point-to-point racing sector with the sponsorship of the PPORA Novice Riders series.

"I'm really looking forward to working with Dodson & Horrell in the forthcoming season," said Laura. "Nutrition is an invaluable aspect in the success of my event horses so I am very grateful for the backing and support Dodson & Horrell is offering me."

Sam Horrell, marketing director for Dodson & Horrell, said: "It's really exciting to be involved with such a talented individual. Laura has long been ear-marked as one of eventing's future stars and Dodson & Horrell are passionate about supporting this talent."

As Royal Warrant holder and official supplier of nutrition to Equestrian Team GBR, Dodson & Horrell played a pivotal advisory role in the lead up to the 2012 London Olympics.
