“We are extremely grateful to AON for their support, and for growing their support this year with the title sponsorship of the Grand Hunter Arena,” said Ali Nilforushan, one of the owners and managers of Nilforushan Equisport Events. “We pride ourselves on giving all competitors a top-notch setting to compete in, and with the help of AON this year we will be able to do just that in the Grand Hunter Ring. This has been a great relationship for two years now, and I look forward to continuing it in the future.”

Aon will sponsor the grass Grand Hunter Ring at the 2019 horse show.
