Likit Products are sponsoring The Pony Club Open Eventing League. The points-based series is designed to give riders increased opportunity to compete at open level and so gain the experience and encouragement to help them go on to compete in The Pony Clubâ€™s Area Competitions and Championship.
Pony Club Branches whose events include an Open (1.10m) Class, are eligible to register for the League with entrants gaining points for places and double clear rounds. The horse and rider combination with the highest number of points at the end of the season will win, with places being awarded to 10th place.
Jenny Yates, Secretary of Pony Club Eventing said of the new sponsorship: â€œWe are really pleased to have Likit on board to both support The Pony Club Open Eventing League, and reward the competitors who take part in it. The 2012 league has a good number of events across the country, which will provide more opportunity for our Open level competitors to practise and prepare for our Area Competitions and Championshipsâ€.
Based in Scotland, Likit manufacture a wide range of stable toys and treats. Marketing manager, Lindsay Gall commented, â€œYoung riders have long embraced the Likit product range and we see this as a great opportunity to give something back to that sector of the horse world. We are especially pleased to be working with The Pony Club which gives such a terrific start for the riders of tomorrow.”
While Likit products undoubtedly have a fun element, the range has been developed out of a serious need, whether it be to alleviate stable boredom, or address the issue of overweight horses and ponies. The company is donating prizes in kind to third place at each event, with every competitor being given a Likit Treat Bar on the day. The overall points winner and nine runners-up will also receive Likit prizes at the end of the series.
