Wednesday 04 July 2012
British Showjumping is pleased to announce equestrian clothing company, Animo UK, as the new sponsor of the British Showjumping Pony, Children, Junior and Young Rider Teams. Animo UK will sponsor the Youth Teams competing at their respective Nations Cups and European Championships.
The specific aims of the Youth Teams are to identify talented combinations and give these combinations the opportunity to progress through the International Showjumping circuit. Since 1980, the British Showjumping Youth Teams have won a grand total of 134 medals, 70 of these being Gold.
The youth riders selected to represent their country are passionate about their sport and are committed to achieving great results. The Team Animo Children, Junior and Young Rider Teams will compete at their respective European Championships at the Magna Racino in Ebreichsdorf, Austria on 13th – 19th August 2012. The Team Animo Pony Team will compete at their European Championship in Fontainebleau during the 17th – 22nd July 2012.
Animo is a phenomenon that has taken the European equestrian clothing market by storm with their ever changing, elegant designs that are handmade in Italy using machine washable, non-iron technical fabrics that look and feel amazing. The elasticity of the fabrics leaves the body free for any movement and their special composition ensures constant body temperature, and hence protection from excessive heat or cold. Animo stands out not only for its advanced technology, but also for its lively, colourful collections.
Fiona Dunning of Animo UK, said "The future of British Showjumping lies in the talents of the young riders on these Youth Teams and Animo UK are delighted to be associated with this by supporting them with the latest technology in Equestrian clothing. We look forward to following their progress at the forthcoming Championships and hope our involvement enhances their chances of fulfilling their dreams."
Maria Clayton, Head of Communications for British Show Jumping commented “We are thrilled that Animo UK has chosen to align with British Showjumping and we look forward to being in a position to announce the 2012 Teams soon.”
