Connolly’s RED MILLS and Foran Equine have been confirmed as the official Nutritional Partner for the 2017 Tattersalls International Horse Trials and will together provide full nutritional support for all competitions taking part at the event.
As part of the partnership competitors in all classes will have the opportunity to pre-purchase their feed and supplements online in advance of the event and have them delivered to Tattersalls.
The Connolly’s RED MILLS and Foran Equine team will have a base at their stand in the shopping village for the duration of the event, offering nutritional advice to competitors and spectators.
Connolly’s RED MILLS will also continue to sponsor the CCI** Under 25 Class for the fifth year, while Connolly’s RED MILLS Engage Dog food will sponsor the dog shows.
In addition the highest placed amateur in the 1* classes will have their horse fed for the year courtesy of Connolly’s RED MILLS. While each rider in the two 3* classes and the CCI** Under 25 will receive a Foran Equine product pack, including some supplement essentials.
Gareth Connolly, Sales and Marketing Director, Connolly’s RED MILLS and Foran Equine, said; “We are delighted to be the official Nutritional Partner for Tatts 2017. Our feed and supplement products are manufactured for the high performance horse so it makes compete sense to be able to supply both our feed and supplements direct to competitors at Tatts. It’s also important that our team are on site to back-up the supply with support and advice.”
This will be the first time that Connolly’s RED MILLS and Foran Equine have provided a direct supply at an event like this and we’re looking forward to working with the team at Tattersalls to ensure that all horses and riders receive a top-class experience.
Connolly’s RED MILLS took over Foran Equine at the end of 2011 and have spent the last number of years really getting to know the products and the equine supplement business. It’s been a great joining of the two companies, the synergies between both have allowed us to get really specific when targeting issues or boosting performance or aiding and supporting the horses welfare.”
Joanne Quirke, Tattersalls International Horse Trials said: “We are delighted to have Connolly’s RED MILLS and Foran Equine on-board as our nutritional partner. We have some of the best eventing horses and riders in the world coming to Tatts and it’s important to us that they have a five-star experience while here; having the option to pre-order their feed and supplements will be a great help to them, especially those travelling from overseas. Horse welfare is key to us and to know that the RED MILLS and Foran team are here to support our competitors should they need it, is a great asset for our event.”
