Hamptons International heralds its 13th year of sponsorship at The Festival of British Eventing at Gatombe Park a triumph

Leading residential agent Hamptons International was delighted to be a sponsor at The Festival of British Eventing, presented by the British Equestrian Trade Association last weekend (5-7 August) in its 13th year of supporting the annual horse trials.  

Taking place at Gatcombe Park, home of HRH The Princess Royal, the weekend took in a VIP lunch hosted by Hamptons International atwhich close contacts and friends of the estate agency were welcomed by Peter Phillips who provided unique insight into the course and updates for this year’s Festival.

Hamptons International is delighted to have fostered a long standing relationship with one of Britain’s leading event riders, Harry Meade. Harry played host at the lunch again this year where he gave an informative talk on the eventing world and his thoughts ahead of the Rio 2016 Olympic Equestrian events. Harry also led the ever popular cross country course walk where guests were talked through the skills and techniques required to master the various championship jumps and fences.

New for 2016 was the estate agency’s hospitality unit, complete with interiors by leading furniture and home accessories retailer, Brissi. Manned by locally based experts from Hamptons International as well as equestrian property specialists, over the course of the weekend visitors were treated to bubbles and light refreshments with face painting and colouring activities for children.

In support of its corporate charity partnership with Cancer Research UK, Hamptons International also ran a competition to win a day accompanying Harry Meade and his team at an event.

Andrew Marshall, Senior Regional Sales Director at Hamptons International comments: “All at Hamptons International are thrilled at the success of this year’s Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park. Over the course of our thirteen years of sponsorship, we have taken great pleasure in playing host to much valued clients, meeting new ones and engaging with both the local and equestrian communities. It is always a special weekend for us and this year proved no exception.”
