Heading Up The Selection Process: Charles Owen At Sansaw International

Charles Owen & Company are delighted to announce their repeated Sponsorship of the British Pony Eventing CCI Championships at Sansaw International Horse Trials Friday 30th May - 1st June 2003. The Pony Event is for riders aged 13 - 16 riding ponies of 14.2hh and under and culminates in the selection of the British Pony Three Day Event Team.

During the past six years Charles Owen have worked closely with leading international riders. The Sponsorship of the Pony Championships is a further initiative enabling them to invest back into the future of the sport. The prospective international stars of the future are frequently found in these ranks, having progressed and learnt through the invaluable Pony Club Organisation. One recent such rider is Tamsyn Hutchins from Cornwall who has now successfully moved up into horses and received crucial funding while also building a valuable portfolio of sponsors.

Of the Sansaw Sponsorship Roy Burek M.D. commented "The Pony Club does such an important job securing and encouraging talented young up and coming riders in the early stages of their careers. We are pleased to be able to support the Pony Club through this sponsorship. It is refreshing to be involved with the Junior ranks at such a significant International level. We now support from the grass roots level of equestrianism right through to the highest Senior levels."

As Charles Owen grows so does the size of their sponsorships. Further additions to the Charles Owen stable enable them to provide 'Top to Toe' support. The American Performance clothing brand Romfh is now distributed exclusively by Charles Owen worldwide, and Sergio Grasso Italian Leather riding boots are supplied thoughout the UK and USA.

This year the Pony teams will be travelling to Necarne in Ireland and Charles Owen are proud to once again be lending their support. The Showjumping and Dressage Teams also benefit from Charles Owen's involvement and are provided with product donations of hats and gloves.
