Metro Rod Oxford Sponsor SsangYong Blenheim International Horse Trials for the 5th Year!

Metro Rod Oxford are delighted to be sponsoring the Attractions Arena at the 2019 SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials for the 5th year running! This year the horse trials are running from Thursday the 19th of September until Sunday the 22nd of September, with events in dressage, show-jumping and cross-country as well as plenty of other attractions, a shopping village and food and drink for days!


The attractions arena hosts plenty of smaller events throughout the days, many of which involve horsemanship. In addition to things like side saddle performers A Bit On The Side and demonstrations from the Thames Valley Police Service, there are also dog agility with Blenheim Paws Trials and also BMX trick riding with Mobile Bike Events. The specific event Metro Rod are sponsoring is Spook Busting with Ginny Oakley Pope, which for those of you who don't know horses and immediately assumed it was something to do with ghostbusting, is a method of helping horses that are prone to shying or jumping if something frightens them. Horses are pack herbivores with eyes on the side of their heads, which is very helpful for spotting danger in the wild, but can also mean that sudden noises or shapes can be frightening to horses. A sudden jump to the side might be a normal reaction to panic, but it can unseat a rider so it's better to have a more resilient horse to ride! We are very proud to be sponsoring this attraction, which is being held on Saturday the 21st at 11:00 at the Attractions Arena.


As for Metro Rod, it is another milestone for us sponsoring the Blenheim Horse Trials for the 5th year. Add that to the 10th anniversary of our director Sues lung transplant and our 20th year in business as commercial drainage experts in Oxfordshire and we feel very fulfilled indeed! For visitors to Blenheim this year you can see our trusty Metro Rod board around the attractions arena, as well as hear commentary notes about us and even view a short advertisement of our services on the screens dotted around the site.
