The Royal International Horse Show has welcomed genetics and diagnostic health testing company Prenetics as its new title sponsor for 2021. This is the first foray into major equestrian event sponsorship for the company, which played a key role in the return of Premier League football last year by carrying out Covid testing across 20 clubs.
Prenetics, which has carried out more than 3 million Covid PCR tests globally since the start of the pandemic, will be on site at Hickstead (20-25 July) to offer Covid testing, plus advice about tests for international travel.
“It’s been a difficult year for so many, so it’s a relief to be getting back to some sense of normality,” said Hickstead Director Lizzie Bunn.
“This will be our first international show since the pandemic, though because of the ongoing situation we will be running the event as a two-star competition in place of the usual five-star. We’re incredibly grateful to Prenetics for adding their generous support and experience to this fixture.”
