Izzy Taylor, Britain’s most successful female event rider of 2017, is offering businesses or individuals a major sponsorship opportunity following the end of her 10 year association with KBIS Insurance.

Izzy, whose familiar pale blue cross-country colours are synonymous with her name in the eventing world, seeks a headline sponsor as she continues to target global success over the next decade. It is a hugely exciting time for Izzy due to her fantastic horse power and support team.

“I have enjoyed a great relationship over the past 10 years with KBIS, riding some wonderful horses and being given some great career opportunities,” said Izzy. “I want to thank all those involved at KBIS, in particular the Prest family, for their outstanding support over the years and am glad that the arrangements we’ve had have been mutually beneficial.”

“Looking ahead, I strive to enjoy continued success on both the national and international stage, which will in turn offer any future sponsors the opportunity to capitalise on the exposure this would give to their business across all media platforms.”
