Polly puts the mettle on for Tilney

Tilney Investment Management&#39s sponsorship of UK three-day eventers has paid off, with one of its competitors being selected for the British team.

Polly Stockton, 28, has been chosen to represent the UK in the World Equestrian Games, taking place this September in Jerez, Spain. She has a three-year sponsorship deal with Tilney.

This is Stockton&#39s first appearance in the senior squad and follows a series of strong performances this season, notably coming seventh at Badminton Horse Trials last month with New Zealand rider Mark Todd&#39s former horse, Eyespy II.

Sales and marketing director Simon Ashworth says: “We looked at this sponsorship as an investment for the future and are delighted that Polly has been able to secure her place in the British team.

“Like many young British athletes and competitors, corporate sponsorship is vital for them to undertake the training necessary to achieve world-class status.”
