Weatherbys Hamilton announces sponsorship at Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials


Weatherbys Hamilton, a leading specialist private client insurance broker, will be supporting the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials this year - providing sponsorship of the Members’ Enclosure.

The world-famous event takes place from 3rd to 7th May on The Duke of Beaufort’s magnificent Badminton estate in South Gloucestershire and attracts crowds of around 160,000 to watch the world’s leading horses and riders compete in dressage, cross country and show jumping.

Weatherbys Hamilton is renowned for its expertise for the insurance of houses, farms, country estates and bloodstock and has a thriving office in Swindon which serves the Cotswolds area and all neighbouring counties. Weatherbys Hamilton partners’ Richard Chugg, Martin Wright and Angus Maclean all have a strong local following. The firm also has offices in Mayfair, Cambridge, Swindon, Wellingborough and Penrith, and is a partner of the family-owned Weatherbys group, which includes Weatherbys Private Bank and has been synonymous with British racing since 1770.

Charles Hamilton, Chief Executive, Weatherbys Hamilton, commented: “Badminton is a world-class event and we are thrilled to be supporting this exciting and hugely popular competition in the equestrian calendar. It is our ambition to be the first name that someone think of when they need private client insurance, in the same way that the Badminton name is synonymous with eventing. The arrival this year of Martin Wright in our Swindon office has added significantly to our farm and estate expertise and we pride ourselves on the fresh approach and excellent, competitive service that we are able to provide from all of our offices.” 

Hugh Thomas, Event Director, Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, said: “The Members’ Enclosure is the social heart of Badminton and we are delighted that Weatherbys Hamilton is supporting us. The Members’ Enclosure is  wonderful place to meet friends and enjoy lunch or drinks and we look forward to seeing our members there this year.”
