Lycetts announces new partnership with the Event Horse Owners Association

29.03.24 – Leading equine and bloodstock insurance broker, Lycetts, has become a new partner of the Event Horse Owners Association (EHOA).

As part of the one-year deal, Lycetts will present a prize to the highest placed EHOA member in the BE90 and BE100 championships at the Voltaire Design Badminton Grassroots Championships in May.

Tim Slinger, Associate Director at Lycetts, said: “We are delighted to support the EHOA, which helps enable event horse owners to network, socialise and contribute to the sport.

“This partnership not only symbolises Lycetts’ deep-rooted commitment to the equine sector but also underscores our dedication to nurturing the spirit of eventing.”

In addition to the partnership announcement, Lycetts is introducing a new £1,000 prize at the Eventing Spring Carnival’s prestigious Grantham Cup, held at Thorseby Park over Easter weekend.

The prize will be awarded to the highest ranking Lycetts-insured rider, adding an extra layer of excitement to the competition.

Lycetts has been a proud sponsor of the Grantham Cup since 2013, and the event will be one of the highlights of the three-day carnival, which commences on March 28th.

Peter Knowles, Lycetts Sales and Marketing Director, added: “We’re always looking for innovative ways to enhance the competitive spirit and enjoyment of equestrian events. The introduction of this new £1,000 prize at the Grantham Cup is a testament to that commitment.

“It’s a thrilling addition to a highly competitive class, that ensures riders are recognised for their exceptional skills and dedication”
