Olympic Riders Support Showjumping Community

Olympic and European gold medallists are among the country’s leading riders giving their support to an innovative new community campaign in the world of show jumping.

With the Equestrian.com Hickstead Derby Meeting just weeks away, many of the country’s top showjumpers are supporting the project to promote the Hickstead Derby Community.

The Hickstead Derby is part of the fabric of British showjumping. It is not only one of the most prestigious showjumping competitions in the world, but it has everything the British sporting audiences want to see.

It is thrilling, exciting, unpredictable and a real spectacle, showcasing all that is good within British sport. It teams fearless horses with brave riders, and even after more than 50 years, it remains the competition that every rider wants to win at least once.

Members of the Community get access to a host of fantastic benefits and become a sponsor of the Equestrian.com Hickstead Derby. Everyone who buys a Hickstead Derby Community polo shirt is also eligible to enter Equestrian.com’s ‘selfie’ competition, which is also taking the show jumping world by storm.

Last year’s Hickstead Derby hero Phillip Miller said: “The Hickstead Derby Community is a fantastic idea and it is great that so many people are showing their commitment to the sport and to a concept which allows thousands of people to be part of the competition.”

The Hickstead Derby Community is one of the most innovative projects to have launched in the equestrian world for many years, as it allows thousands of show jumping fans and supporters to get involved in this iconic competition.

The Hickstead Derby Community polo shirt costs just £24.99 and comes with a host of other benefits, including a free Members’ Enclosure ticket for Thursday 26th June at the Equestrian.com Hickstead Derby Meeting, worth £26 if bought separately.

The polo shirt gives its wearer automatic entry into the Hickstead Derby Community VIP competition, where the winner will be part of the presentation ceremony at the 2014 Equestrian.com Derby and present the winner with the iconic Boomerang Trophy, live on Sky Sports, as part of a fantastic weekend away at Hickstead. The prize will include overnight accommodation, VIP hospitality and a Sky Sports tour.

Hickstead Derby Community members will also be entered into the Equestrian.com Derby Course Walk Competition, giving showjumping fans the chance to walk around the iconic course with a leading rider, who will share their insights, tactics and tips.
