Tom has produced several successful horses and is a regular at major events including international four-star competitions at Badminton, Burghley, Pau in France and Luhmühlen, in Germany.  An accomplished rider in all three eventing disciplines and excelling at cross country, he has enjoyed considerable success, finishing 11th at last year’s Burghley CCI**** on Cooly’s Luxury.

Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK commented, “We are delighted to be supporting Tom who will be presenting our vehicles to the eventing and wider equine community.  The Korando Sports pick-up with its four wheel drive and 2.7 tonne towing capacity is perfect for pulling a two horse trailer, while its five seat double cab, large load area and 1 tonne payload make it ideal for anyone with a horse.”

Added Tom:  “This is a great opportunity for us.  I am delighted to have teamed-up with this great Korean brand and look forward to representing SsangYong as I travel to events around the UK and abroad.  With the support of great sponsors and owners I am optimistic of achieving even more success in the future.”

Tom and his wife Sophie run Team Crisp Eventing from their yard in Mayfield, East Sussex, where he also works as a retained firefighter.
