Leading insurance broker continues its support for amateur riders via riding club championships

Having sponsored British Riding Clubs (BRC) and its events for more than 30 years, SEIB Insurance Brokers is to continue with its sponsorship deal, which includes three championships due to take place during 2024.

Last month, SEIB sponsored the BRC Quadrille of the Year Championships, won by Cornwall Trec Group, with Billericay and Breakspear second and third respectively, and it has now confirmed sponsorship of the SEIB Novice Winter Championships (6–7 April at Arena UK, Nottinghamshire), the SEIB BRC Horse Trials Championships (2–4 August at Swalcliffe Park, Oxfordshire) and the SEIB BRC Combined Championships (5–6 October at Aston-le-Walls, Northamptonshire). Sponsorship of all these events will run for two years, until 2026.

Head of BRC Rachael Holley-Thompson said: “We are thrilled to be working even more closely with SEIB. We have had a great relationship for many years and feel that this really reflects the commitment SEIB have in supporting the grassroots equestrian sector.”

And for anyone who wants to chat about their equestrian insurance needs – whether for their horse, horsebox, trailer or yard – the SEIB team will be in attendance at all the championship events to give first-hand advice on the right policy.

The sponsorship renewal is just one of many ways SEIB supports equestrianism in the UK through its policy of ‘putting something back’ into the markets it operates in, especially grassroots and amateur riders via organisations such as the BRC. In addition, SEIB runs the SEIB Search for a Star amateur showing championships with top finals at both Horse of the Year Show and Your Horse Live.

SEIB’s current goals include increasing access to equestrianism, championing amateur sport and supporting the equine industry while protecting the horse and dealing with key issues, such as the social licence to operate.

SEIB Head of Marketing Kate Oswald said: “Supporting grassroots riders is something that is incredibly important to us at SEIB, after all, they are the future of equestrian sports. British Riding Clubs play such a fundamental part in providing opportunities and progression for these riders, and we are hugely excited to be getting more involved in the BRC championships.”
