Twice Mitsubishi Motors Cup winner Katie Hancock who piloted her seven year old shire x thoroughbred mare Coddstown Pet to victory in the BE100 class in May at Badminton, Gloucestershire has been presented with her brand new Outlander GX4 at Hawkins Mitsubishi in Penryn – she keeps the car for a whole year.
The competition offers amateur riders from all over Great Britain the chance to compete for honours ahead of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials. Not only do the championship winners receive a Mitsubishi Motors vehicle for a year; they will get £600 in prize money, a trophy and a commemorative plaque to keep.
The 34 year old, a safety and compliance manager from St Columb, near Newquay is enjoying her new Mitsubishi Outlander GX4. “Winning for the second year was such a huge achievement for me, especially when this year I was riding a relatively inexperienced horse.”
Jason Groombridge at Hawkins Mitsubishi said “To win the Mitsubishi Motors Cup at Badminton is very impressive and to do it twice on a different horse is amazing and we are delighted to be able to make this win even more special for Katie.”
“I have loved having my Mitsubishi Motors vehicle and I am excited to have my super new car, it really suits my lifestyle with regular motorway trips for work, towing my horses and it’s great to drive around in the countryside on all sorts of terrain,” added Katie.
The competition is one of the key National Championships in the British Eventing calendar. British Eventing is the governing body for the sport of eventing in Great Britain, providing the unique combination of dressage, cross country and show jumping in one exciting activity.
