LAND ROVER TO SPONSOR BURGHLEY HORSE TRIALS UNTIL 2010

Gaydon, Warwickshire, 30 May 2007 Ė Land Rover has today announced it will remain as title sponsor of The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials until at least the year 2010.

Land Rover has been associated with Burghley since the 1990's and has been the proud title sponsor of the Event since 2005, when William Fox-Pitt and Ballincoola were victorious.

John Edwards, Land Rover UK managing director, commented: "The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials is the pinnacle of our equestrian sponsorship portfolio. With a natural association between the Land Rover brand and equestrianism, where better to showcase this than at an Event regarded as one of the best in the world."

Elizabeth Inman, Burghley Horse Trials director, added: "The relationship between these two well-known international brands has grown from strength to strength. I am delighted that this partnership has now been further reinforced by Land Roverís commitment as title sponsor until 2010. Its investment is hugely beneficial and will enable Burghley to continue to provide strong support to the sport as a whole. We look forward to continuing our successful and mutually beneficial association over the next sponsorship term."

As well as visitors to Burghley, which this year takes place from 30 August to 2 September, competitors will also see benefit from Land Rover's continued sponsorship with the winner scooping a much-deserved £50,000 from a total prize fund of £200,000.
