Kehl. Motorhome manufacturer Bürstner from Kehl is further expanding its commitment to regional sport and signed a long-term sponsorship agreement with the Schutterwald Riding Club. The club, which is well-known beyond the region and will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year, received a new 4 x 4 metre, permanently installed Bürstner tournament arch at the entrance to the show jumping arena as part of this cooperation. In addition, the club receives an annual financial contribution in the 4-digit range.

"We are very grateful when large companies from the region support us. In a riding club with large facilities, its own horses, big tournaments and a permanently employed riding instructor, there are regular expenses to be tackled and financial holes to be plugged," comments Daniel Armbruster, 1st chairman of the Schutterwald riding club.

"So we are happy about every sponsor from the economy. It is a win-win situation for both partners, because the companies get high visibility at the tournaments, whose spectators come from all over Germany. Also the parents of the riding students* are certainly an interesting potential clientele for Bürstner."

"With this sponsorship, we are promoting local equestrian sports and thus doing our part to ensure that the young people of the region can practise their sport under attractive conditions," adds Thorsten Erhardt, Marketing Manager of the Bürstner company.

"Of course, the equestrian visitors to the facility are an interesting target group for us, because the athletes need comfortable accommodation near the venue and their horses during the tournaments so that they can recharge their batteries. Our mobile homes and vans with home comforts are ideal for this."

The Schutterwald Riding Club was founded in 1924. It currently has about 400 members, 100 of whom are children and young people. Regional and national tournaments take place several times a year at the club's facilities, such as the "Große Springturnier" (Big Show Jumping Tournament) this weekend from 8 to 11 June 2023.
