Kihikihi announces new sponsors >>
The Kihikihi International Horse Trial is happy to announce several new partnership arrangements for 2011.

Alltech will be the new sponsor of the CIC Two Star Class. Alltech is a world wide leader in animal nutrition, health and performance making them a most suitable naming sponsor at the highly successful 2010 Alltech World Equestrian Games. Alltech also sponsored the Alltech Cross Country Course walk by Mike Etherington-Smith at Kihikihi in February.

Another warm welcome is extended to Geoff and Julie Porter, owners of Hamilton’s Carlton Party Hire, as sponsors at the Kihikihi International Horse Trial. Carlton Party Hire has all the equipment needed to make the perfect event, from marquees, furniture, tableware, linen and catering equipment to audio visual equipment. So look out for their upmarket products at Kihikihi.

Wade Equine Coaches & Floats is the events longest standing sponsor. Their continued support is greatly appreciated. Wade Equine takes the reigns of the Novice classes.

Fertco returns as the naming sponsor of the Fertco Pre Novice. As innovators in nutrient efficiency, Fertco provide expertise in fertiliser requirements for healthy equestrian pasture management.

Interislander aims to help the South Island riders to bring their horses to Kihikihi. Their sponsorship in the form of 10 Interislander Vouchers each valued at $200 reduces the financial impact of travelling across Cook Strait. Any rider who wishes to uptake an Interislander Voucher for this purpose, please contact Sally Miller at Eventing NZ for a Voucher number and make your booking.

Other sponsors for 2011 are Linda Hawley and Country Saddles. Look for Linda in the Trade Village. Just Cabins again provide a lovely cabin that will be used as the event office. Savvy Touch will sponsor the Savvy Touch Trot-up with drinks, nibbles and product prizes available.

Another new sponsor is Cambridge Grains who are sponsoring a bag of feed for each class and Te Awamutu Saddlery are sponsoring the prizes for the Best Groom in both the FEI World Cup and the Alltech Two Star Class. You can catch up with Cambridge Grains at the Trade-stand area.

Newstalk ZB are back on board at the official radio station of the Kihikihi International Horse Trial. Newstalk ZB will keep listers across the Waikato and New Zealand up to date with the latest news from the event. Newstalk ZB are also naming rights sponsor of the Fools and Horses Fun Run.

Last but certainly not least, the ongoing support from Waipa District Council is greatly appreciated by the organisers, the riders and the greater public alike.
