A Special Gift to Celebrate 25 Years


We were thrilled to be commissioned by Mitsubishi to create a special gift for the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort to mark the 25th anniversary of Mitsubishi Motors’ title sponsorship of the Badminton Horse Trials. We created a replica of the Duke of Beaufort’s favourite horse Countryman III, on whom His Grace competed at Badminton in 1957, 1958 and then in 1959.

This very special rocking horse was presented at Badminton House by Lance Bradley, the Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK. The Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials is one of the most prestigious three-day-events in the world and one of the biggest dates in the eventing calendar, we look forward to exhibiting at the event next month.

The Duchess of Beaufort said: “I am delighted to accept this wonderful gift which will be a reminder of the first 25 years of the relationship between Mitsubishi Motors and Badminton Horse Trials.”

If you would like to create a bespoke rocking horse in tribute to your own horse, we can make this dream a reality. Contact us today on 01233 820363 or email sales@stevensonbros.com
