RD Petroleum sponsoring the Rakaia Springston Trophy 2017
The Rakaia Springston Trophy is held from the 6th – 8th of October, at the Rakaia Domain and riverbed. The Springston Trophy is the largest pony club team event in the South Island. It gives young riders a taste of competition at championship level, and an opportunity to build friendships that can last a lifetime.
RD Petroleum are happy to be sponsoring an event with such a long history behind it – the Springston Trophy was started in 1972 and top competitors in the competition have been the likes of Mark Todd and Charisma!
A new cross-country course is going to be unveiled this year. It will be a great asset to the area, and the riding community around the South Island.
Open to pony club branches throughout the South Island, we’re proud to be sponsoring the event as it fosters equestrian sport in the South Island and is a fantastic experience for our young riders.
