Sponsors 2023

We are eternally grateful to the support that our sponsors have provided throughout Rockingham International Horse Trials early years. Sponsorship provides an opportunity for the sponsor to promote not only their business and the service they offer but also a chance to meet and entertain clients or perhaps thank members of staff. Whatever the motivation a first class day out with friends or clients, excellent hospitality in a beautiful setting with great sport is offered, one could hardly ask for more.
With best wishes
James Saunders Watson & Lizzie Saunders Watson
