The SEIB Winter Novice Championship is a popular series made up of twelve national qualifying rounds which are held ahead of the Championship Final, which will once again be run during the prestigious Longines Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead (25th – 29th July 2018). Rebecca Marsh and Predator Ridge used every tight line to their advantage in this year’s jump off to take the 2017 Championship title.

Commenting on this announcement, Nicolina Mackenzie, Marketing Manager at SEIB, said “We are delighted to continue our sponsorship of this very special Championship. Not only does it give competitors an aim for the winter months, but it also give them a very special opportunity to jump in the famous Hickstead international arena, something that not very many riders get a chance to do. SEIB Insurance Brokers feel privileged to be part of something that helps to make dreams come true.”

Maria Haig, Head of Communications at British Showjumping added “We are thrilled to announce SEIB’s continued alignment with the Winter Novice Championship. Their support of the series is pivotal to its success and we feel fortunate to have SEIB’s ongoing commitment for another season.”
