Here at Protect My Income, we’re starting 2019 off with some exciting news.
Firstly, we’re proud to announce our headline sponsorship with Kelsall Hill Equestrian Centre for this years British Eventing Horse Trials in April and September. We’ve been working closely with the team at Kelsall for some time now and can’t wait to continue this year.
“We are delighted to announce our sponsorship with Protect My Income as the title sponsors for our British Eventing Horse Trials in 2019. We have previously worked with Helen and the team at our Arena Eventing Winter Series, which has been a pleasure. The attention to detail and professionalism ensures working with them an easy and enjoyable experience. We are excited to see the partnership grow over the coming year” – Meg, Kelsall Hill Equestrian Centre
We are also thrilled to reveal that the latest brand ambassador to join the ever-growing Protect My Income team is successful event rider and instructor, Michael Owen. Michael is based at Kelsall Hill in Cheshire and has had a long and successful career in eventing, starting at twelve years old with the Burton Cheshire Forest Hunt Pony Club.
He made his first 4* star event debut with Perks of the Job when he was 21 and a few years later they went on to compete at Badminton for the first time. His long standing partnership with The Highland Prince also saw him go onto compete in a further four 4* events and impressively jump clear on 83 of their 88 completions. In 2016 they won at the CCI3* at Ballindenisk, a year before Michael announced The Highland Prince’s retirement.
However, it’s his partnership with 14-year-old Bradeley Law that you may know him best for. The pair got plenty of attention in 2018 at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials when they impressively moved from a 65th position to 15th place overall after an excellent clear cross country ride. Michael still regularly competes with Bradeley Law as well as his other horses, some of which include Jims Pal, Joe King and Metropolitom.
Michael’s years of experience eventing and teaching means he knows how important it is to have a reliable insurance policy in place.
“If I didn’t have my Income Protection and Fracture Benefit policy with Protect My Income and I was unfortunate enough to suffer a serious injury, I would really struggle. Knowing that I’m covered for whatever I’m doing whether that’s on the horses or not just makes life so much easier to enjoy”.
We couldn’t be prouder to have Michael on board and look forward to working with him and Team Owen this year. You can see Michael compete at Kelsall Hill for the British Eventing Horse Trials, along with the Protect My Income team, who will be there offering advice to anyone that’s interested or wants to know more.
