19 September 2017
We were delighted to once again sponsor the SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials 2017. Firmly established in the eventing calendar, the 2017 Trials will took place from Wednesday 13th to Sunday 17th September, featuring many of the world’s best riders and event horses.
As part of our sponsorship, we gave 10 pairs of tickets to our customers in a giveaway, for the Sunday event. The Sunday event included action from both the cross country and show jumping phases as the event reaches its conclusion.
Our customers had a brilliant day, with the weather holding out well for them to enjoy the event.
“We had a fantastic day. Weather was glorious! The whole event is so well organised and you are so close to the competition, we felt part of it. The scenery is magnificent and in such a lovely part of the country. We had a wonderful day and would like to thank Watson Fuels for the day. I was amazed when you telephoned as we never win raffles!” – Ms O
"My wife and I had a great day at Blenheim Palace. We actually combined the horse trials with a visit to the palace itself, including the exhibition, state rooms, gardens, lunch on the “patio” by the fountains and a walk down to the Grand Cascade. We got into the event grounds by the back entrance in time for the day’s final showjumping round. We finished with a visit to the butterfly house and a quick stroll through the famous maze." - Mr S
"Thank you to Watsons for our tickets to Blenheim, we had a lovely afternoon!" - Mrs B
