Rockingham International Horse Trials welcomes a new title sponsor

Luxury footwear and accessories brand Fairfax & Favor has signed a deal to take title sponsorship of Rockingham International Horse Trials, which this year runs from 18th – 20th May.

Established in 2013, Fairfax & Favor has been a regular exhibitor at the British Eventing affiliated fixture, and its name is now well established both inside and outside the equestrian market. With the rapid growth of the luxury, lifestyle brand, co-founders Felix Favor Parker and Marcus Fairfax Fountaine decided that 2018 was the perfect time to step up a level in the world of eventing.

Parker and Fountaine said of the new partnership: “Fairfax & Favor is privileged to take title sponsorship of Rockingham International Horse Trials. We have thoroughly enjoyed supporting the event as keen exhibitors almost since its inception, and recently shot our Autumn/Winter 2017 campaign in the Castle and the beautiful grounds.

“We are very excited to develop our working relationship, and cannot wait for the Horse Trials to kick off in May.”

Castle owners James and Lizzie Saunders Watson welcome this new partnership, saying: “We are delighted to have Fairfax & Favor as our new title sponsor. It is an exciting, very British brand that we have enjoyed watching grow over the last few years. Its ethos fits very well with that of the castle and our horse trials, and we are looking forward to working with the company in the build up to the 2018 event.”
