Due to its amazing popularity in 2012 Blue Chip Feed Limited are continuing their sponsorship of the Flat Ridden Sports Horse class in 2013. There are over 30 qualifying classes which are held at shows across the country for the final at The SHB (GB) National Hunter Show at Bury Farm in Buckinghamshire on 2nd September 2013. This year will see the addition of horses that are 6 years old and over qualifying to compete in the final.
The final will be split into two classes; 4 & 5 year olds and 6 year olds & over. Blue Chip’s sponsorship manager Sarah Butler says “Because these classes were so popular in 2012 we have decided to give older horses the opportunity to compete for a place in the final. Many horses are given longer to mature before they are competed and this extension of the age range will allow these horses to contend for the prestigious title of Champion Flat Ridden Sports Horse with £400 on offer in the Championship.”
As well as the prize money in the championship Blue Chip are sponsoring all the qualifying classes with generous prizes.
